Forza Motorsport Early Access: Is It Worth the Price?
We’re only a week away from the highly anticipated release of Forza Motorsport on Xbox Game Pass. However, if you can’t wait that long, you have the option of getting early access, which starts on October 5th, five days prior to the official release on October 10th.
What’s Included in the Early Access Package?
The early access package is available through the Premium Edition of Forza Motorsport. There are two options:
- Full Price: The Premium Edition can be purchased for £89.99 / $99.99. This includes the base game and a range of additional content.
- Upgrade Price: Xbox Game Pass members can opt for the upgrade price of £26.99 / $35.99. This upgrade does not include the base game but provides access to the extra content.
The Premium Edition offers several additional in-game content, including a Car Pass, Race Day Car Pack, VIP Membership, and a Welcome Pack. These extras provide a more immersive and enhanced gaming experience compared to the standard version.
Is it Worth the Money?
The big question is, is it worth the price? Should you spend your Xbox credit or Microsoft Rewards points to get early access, or is it better to wait for the Game Pass release on October 10th?
The answer ultimately depends on your level of excitement for Forza Motorsport and your willingness to pay for early access. The additional content offered in the Premium Edition adds value to the game, enhancing the gameplay and providing a more comprehensive experience.
If you’re a die-hard fan of the Forza series and can’t wait to get your hands on the latest installment, the early access option might be worth considering. It allows you to dive into the game five days before everyone else and enjoy the exclusive content that comes with the Premium Edition.
On the other hand, if you’re patient and can wait for the Game Pass release, you’ll be able to play Forza Motorsport without any additional cost beyond your Game Pass subscription. This option is more budget-friendly and still provides access to the core game experience.
What Do Gamers Think?
To gauge public opinion, we conducted a poll on whether gamers would be buying the early access for Forza Motorsport. Here are the results:
|I’m definitely getting it!||20%|
|I’ll probably be tempted to, yeah||5%|
|I’m not sure yet, to be honest||6%|
|I doubt it, but you never know||13%|
|Nope, not interested!||56%|
From the poll results, it’s evident that the majority of gamers (56%) are not interested in buying the early access. This could be due to various reasons, such as financial constraints or simply preferring to wait for wider availability.
