Each day, Microsoft brings us a bit more information regarding the launch of the Xbox One. While you're left to await or speculate that actual date, certain details of the picture are becoming clearer. We've confirmed at least 50 titles
that will be available on the Xbox One (with several exclusives). We've also verified
that 23 of those 50 titles will be available on the console's launch day.
What is there to gain from owning Day One games? Some might make the point that having a shiny, new console is rather pointless if you have nothing to play. It would be very difficult to argue that point (rationally, anyways). Still, today's demanding gamer expects more. Microsoft announced that a few of the Day One games will indeed have more.Ryse: Son of Rome
The Day One version of Ryse: Son of Rome
includes an exclusive "Legionnaire's Trust" sword and access to a Gladiator Mode co-op map called "Ruins". If you've got the Day One Edition, you'll be able to invite your friends with the standard edition to join you on your exclusive map.
Legionnaire’s Trust Exclusive Sword: From the Brotherhood of Metalworkers high in the Swiss Alps comes this well-crafted, finely hammered blade that includes bonus in-game attributes.
Ruins: Placing gladiators among the columns of an abandoned temple, Ruins will pit players against hordes of Barbarians, attacking from around every corner. The arena changes dynamically during gameplay, adding new obstacles and objectives for the player to encounter and overcome.Forza Motorsport 5
Those who choose to take to the track on launch day will receive the "Day One Car Pack". This bonus includes three vehicles with special Day-One liveries. Additionally, each car has been expertly-tuned by the crew at Turn 10.
2010 Audi TT RS Coupe: Stuffed stem to stern with modern tech, the TT RS is the first TT model to carry Audi’s famed RS badge – a distinction that’s earned on the track from the moment you step on the gas.
2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera: Like great sculpture, the Superleggera’s chiseled form is carefully considered for maximum impact. That’s where the similarities end, however, because this work of art is best appreciated when it’s moving at top speed.
2013 Ford Focus ST: Debuting with the same 247-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine from the much larger Ford Explorer SUV, the new Ford Focus ST packs a serious punch.Dead Rising 3
For the fashion-conscious among you, the "Dead Rising Tribute Pack" includes some threads from previous games in the series. Besides changing your look, they also bring some character attributes to the show.
Classic Frank West outfit with Frank’s Zombie Slugger weapon, extra gory attacks and a custom skill move. Also includes attribute perks for increased melee damage and tougher survivors.
Official Chuck Greene outfit with Paddle Saw combo weapon that cuts through zombie hordes with increased damage and durability. Also includes attribute perks for vehicle and weapon durability.
You can obtain these Day One Editions by pre-ordering through retailers or purchasing them from Xbox Live during the first two weeks of availability. It should be noted that retailers have limited supplies of Day One Editions and will only offer them while supplies last.
Release dates for all three of these titles are still pending, but keep checking back with us. At some point, someone is going to have to make an announcement.
