The forza 7 xbox rewards giveaway is a great way to get people like my to buy forza 7. I never intended to buy forza 7 right away but then i won the vip for it. I got a good deal on the standard digital version so i splurged. I just really hope the day one dlc can be bought in the future. I had planned on waiting for the ultimate to go on sale so I had all the content. With the past forza games though only the pre order cars never got put up by themselves correct? I know horizon 3's didn't
The Ultimate Edition most likely wouldn't come with all the content, anyway. It comes with VIP, the Car Pass, the Hoonigan Pack and whatever's in the Day One Pack. The Car Pass covers 6 monthly car packs. If they have more than 6, they won't be covered. Any expansions most likely won't be covered, either.
For FH3, the Ultimate was VIP, car pass and a Motorsports All-Stars pack that was also available in the Deluxe edition as well as separately. It didn't cover Blizzard Mountain or Hot Wheels, though Ultimate owners got a discount on the Expansion Pass covering those 2 DLCs when Blizzard Mountain released. There have been some car packs released after the time frame of the pass (Porsche, Hoonigan and at least 1 other) that need to be purchased. Also, there was no Day One pack for FH3. The retailer preorder bonus cars can all be purchased from the autoshow. The site says the preorder cars are tuned, no mention of exclusive liveries.
FM6 Ultimate didn't cover the Porsche or NASCAR expansions, and there were car packs beyond the time frame covered by the pass. Don't feel like digging through Forza forums and comparing the preorder cars with what's available to buy in game.
They haven't even announced what's in the FM7 Day One pack yet, whether it's going to be something truly exclusive, limited time exclusive or like FH3, just in-game cars with specific tunes / liveries. No mention if there's going to be any Forza Rewards loyalty stuff, either.
