GAMES FIRMS Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have fielded special editions of Forza Motorsport 5.
The special editions are available for preorder now and both are packed with exclusive features. The Limited Edition is exclusive to high street and online store Game and the other is called the Day One Edition.
The Game variant will cost £59.99 at launch, comes in a steel box, and has a range of car packs, including motors like the 2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback, the 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish and the 2013 Ford M Shelby Mustang GT500.
You will also get a VIP membership, which offers more cars like the 1965 Shelby Cobra 42 and the 1991 Mazda, plus tokens that will let you buy other cars.
It is definitely a game for petrolheads. One car, for example, is described as "more than a mere grocery-getter" with a "340 horsepower grin generator that will paste your head to the back of the seat and not crack a single egg in the process".
Game is happy to be the home of the exclusive Limited Edition. "We are thrilled to offer this exclusive edition of Forza Motorsport 5 to our customers. We know that gamers love getting their hands on unique and special bonus content and we always strive to offer them the best," said Game category director Charlotte Knight .
"Fans of the Forza series are already looking forward to this new title - now they have even more reasons to get excited!"
The Day One Edition has special packaging and cars from Lamborghini, Audi, and Ford. It has an estimated retail price of £49.99, which is the same as what the game will cost when it is released. µ
