Video game pricing isn’t as straight forward as it used to be, and that sentiment holds true with the upcoming release of Forza Motorsport on 10th October. While there are still many titles that release for the industry standard at $59.99, Forza Motorsport is set to have multiple editions that are all even more than that.
Forza Motorsport will have three editions to choose from.
- The Standard Edition of Forza Motorsport, the base game, will cost $69.99 / £69.99 / €79.99.
- Forza Motorsport’s Deluxe Edition will be the second tier, right in the middle, and will cost $89.99 / £79.99 / €89.99. This Edition comes with Car Pass, which is an add-on service which will give players 30 new cars over 30 weeks, one car at a time.
- Premium is the highest tiered Edition for Forza Motorsport, coming in at $99.99 / £89.99 / €99.99, and not only does it have the Car Pass, but also two extra Car Packs (Race Day and Welcome), a VIP Membership and five days of Early Access.
Forza Motorsport via Xbox Game Pass
Players on Xbox Game Pass will get the base game included with their subscription, but they can also opt in for $39.99 (UK and European prices still TBA) to get the Premium Add-Ons Bundle, which essentially turns any standard game into a Premium Edition. It can also be bought and used with a Standard Edition of the Game although that would waste about $10.
If you want to get in on the Xbox Game Pass subscription service, there are tiers for that as well, with $9.99 being the lowest cost for PC or Console players, or $14.99 for the Ultimate Edition that includes Xbox Live Gold and EA Play services.
In short, that’s between $120 and $180 for a total year of access to the Game Pass services, and if you’re just looking to play Forza Motorsport, that will definitely be a waste of money if you’re not accessing the rest of the catalog. Also, don’t forget, if you cancel your subscription, you cancel your access to the game as well.
Which version is right for you?
Hopefully, this makes the pricing a little less confusion. If more content is an interest, Deluxe might whet the whistle. As far as gaining early access and the most possible content, that would be Premium. If you just want to go racing, Standard will do. Which one will you be getting?
