Pre-ordering Forza Horizon 4, Retailer Bonuses, and Pre-Order Cars

POST-LAUNCH INFO

There are seven "Preorder Car" models in the game's roster. Although they were originally offered as bonuses by pre-ordering the game from specific retailers, they are available for all players to use without a requirement for any DLC codes. The seven models are variants of seven base cars available to all players, tuned by Forza's developers to the top of their PI class. There are some differences in the ability to upgrade the base cars vs. the Preorder Car model specs. As of April 2020 Preorder Cars are blocked from being listed in the Auction House, but have been offered for direct acquisition from the Forzathon Shop from time to time - see the Exclusive Cars List thread. Preorder Cars are also included in the Horizon Promo & Car Collection tile in the Pause menu.
  • 2017 Aston Martin DB11 Preorder Car
  • 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Preorder Car
  • 2017 Ford Focus RS Preorder Car
  • 2018 McLaren 720S Coupe Preorder Car
  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R Preorder Car
  • 2017 Nissan GT-R Preorder Car
  • 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Preorder Car





ORIGINAL PRE-LAUNCH INFO


FAQ: Are these preorder bonus DLC cars exclusive DLC or are "Preorder Edition" variants in addition to the regular roster version?
A: "Not exclusive. Just like fh3, tuned up versions of cool cars in base game."^

    Does anyone know if the pre-orders are limited to these retailers? Or will the Microsoft Store be having it soon so a digital version can be purchased in order to have both W10 and Xbox One copies for Play Anywhere?

    @Karleya1952 ; If you read the article https://www.forzamotorsp...-us/news/fh4_e3_announce , you see that they say it will be avaiable for pre-order digitally on June 11th. Quote:

    Since I have the game pass I considered just playing this game effectively for free.

    Side note: Amazon has 6 month game pass codes for $25 making it only $5 a month and you can buy up to two of them. I think it's only valid while e3 is going on. Pretty much a no-brainer for anyone that games even the slightest bit.

    The couple days early and a few extra cars don't really mean much to me. But it looks like for the first time they are including the expansions in the ultimate edition. Previously if I remember right with any version of the Forza Motorsport games you had to actually buy the expansion separately even if you had pre-purchased The Ultimate Edition. Possibly I'm wrong here but it seems like they're now throwing those in which makes the ultimate edition actually worth it vs saving the $100 and playing on my "free" game pass version.

    I'm still trying to figure out what Xbox Game Pass does to all this, since I've been subscribed for a bit and just bought 6 months for $30...

    Looks like I would still technically want the ultimate edition for the perks but I have no idea how having Game Pass might affect the pricing on that.

    Don't you get a discount with the Game Pass?

    I plan on purchasing the Ultimate edition again. It's an even better value this time.

    Yes it's an even better value this year.

    For me the early access is a big deal. Since Horizon is always released around my birthday. So I use my birthday holiday and get to play forza horizon all day, on the first day of early release.

    It's always been an excellent birthday present to myself.

    I'd assume so... I have to look in to the specifics on how much of a discount. There's enough in Game Pass that it's teetering on being worth $10/mo for me generally, but the half price sales going on right now make it a no brainer.

    I would not expect a consolidated bonus pack from Microsoft as that would defeat the purpose of offering various retailers the incentives.

    Fortunately JONK confirmed that that the DB11 etc is not an exclusive model - you'll get it and the others wherever you buy FH4; the bonus DLC cars are tuned up variants.

    Yeah. I got excited for a bit there, but the Horizon Life comment certainly makes it seem like just in-game stuff.

    I'm leaning towards ordering from Amazon. As a prime member I've always received a prime discount, but currently, they show a prime discount for the standard version only. I'll be getting the UE version, and it's not showing a Prime discount price (yet?), plus it isn't confirming the early release of the UE version on Amazon. I'm a stickler for ordering details, so I'll wait awhile to see if they update that. It was all in black and white when I pre ordered FM7 from amazon, prime discount, early release, etc.

    Well, at least it looks like the Microsoft and Xbox stores are united now, which means one single pre-order bonus when they decide to announce it. I remember when FH3 came out, there was a Microsoft store and an Xbox store online and each one had a different pre-order bonus car. I ended up with the Mercedes somehow. Decent car, anyway.

    I posted this elsewhere, but I wonder if this is a better thread for it. Aplopogies for the quasi double-post.

    So in the description on the homepage, it says something along the lines of “those who pre-order the physical copy of Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Edition will also get the Formula Drift Car pack”.

    Does anyone know if that means the physical Ultimate Edition doesn’t get any of the other perks, such as day 1 Car pack, early access and expansions etc.?

    No mention of a Steelbook... again... unless I missed something. When FM7 was due out, I didn't find any Steelbook information right away, but reread some of the announcement articles and found the version comparison and it mentioned the Steelbook for Ultimate Edition FM7... I think I found that comparison chart on Gamestop USA website, but They don't have anything yet, too soon I guess. Will keep an eye on it. FM7 did also come with the 1:43rd-scale model Porsche 911 GT2 RS too, so there's that also.
