The special edition and bonuses provide a hint into how Ride 5‘s post-release content strategy will play out.

Firstly, both the digital standard edition pre-orders and a special edition will feature the Far East Pack which includes two additional motorcycles:

  • Kawasaki Z900 2021
  • Suzuki TL1000R Racing Modified 1998

The Z900 is a super make motorbike with 125 ps (at 9,500 rpm) the brand’s Z Sugomi styling. The older Suzuki, meanwhile, is a uniquely tuned motorsport version of the 90° V-Twin superbike.

Mercifully, both bikes are new for Ride 5, not appearing in 2020’s Ride 4. We expect the pack to be available as a separate purchase for those who do not pre-order or pick up the special edition.

Season Pass confirmed

Its sets the template for Ride 5‘s DLC plan, with a special edition of the game also including a Rebel Pack, the contents of which are to be confirmed.

It also comes bundled with a Season Pass, confirming a long-term commitment to new content after release. Ride 4’s season pass, for example, featured new motorcycles, events and Trophies/Achievements three times per month for the 10 months post-launch. Then, there was a mixture of paid and free additions.
