    So we can either wait for glitch to be fixed or get a refund?

    You guys had how long to preorder again?
    I pre-ordered it over a week ago. Don't know why that matters though? It said in the game's description that you get immediate free access to TWD Collection.

    Well, it's their loss.

    Like I wrote before if you didn't go "BUY" the collection before the Final Season went live...i'm surprised so many people didn't, its the first thing I tried to do.

    I expected it to start downloading on its own. I decided to wait until release date to see if it would download on its own then, nope. All the other times I've paid for pre-orders it would do it all on its own, so I thought this would be no exception.

    I doubt whoever was behind the promotion was purposely trying to cause complications but sure did so by forcing gamers to do to the store and buy the product which showed up as free as opposed to automatically making that game appear as bought and in the download history...sucks for me I already bought a disc copy of it off a former teammate of mine last year anyway lol

    It just showed up free for me just now. You all might want to check to see if they fixed the issue.

    Who does this naturally as everything appears in your ready to install list?

    For what it's worth, I agree with Oriole... it's also the first thing I did when I pre-ordered (on Xbox.com though, not on the console)... if only to see that it said "You own this product". It didn't, but it said "Free", so it wasn't exactly rocket science to understand I had to get it that way.

    See it that way... Say you pre-order The Final Season from the console, and the Collection didn't show up in your "Ready to Install" list, THEN what do you do? Surely the first thing AFTER realizing it hasn't shown up is to at least check out the store page for it, no?
    Broke is a state of wallet. Poverty is a state of mind.

    I love it how some people make it fault of buyer.

    Oh well, if I dont get it I just get refund.
    Any problem solved is a new problem made.

    I pre-ordered The Final Season on the 13th and I can't find the free download for the Collection at all.

    Edit: After spending an hour with support, they do not understand the concept of getting the Full Collection for free with the pre-order. They kept saying the episodes will come out in the future. Refund was given for the Final Season. No Final Season, No Full Collection.

    Mine showed up for free today as well - they must be doing it manually as yesterday it was showing full price (despite Xbox support emailing me to tell me my issue was "resolved" (without saying how))

    This.

    PS: I did have a previous experience with pre-ordering South Park: The Fractured But Whole, which was giving South Park: The Stick of Truth for free. I had to go to the Stick of Truth page to download it, so the first thing after pre-ordering The Final Season, I headed to the Collection's page. It said "free". Downloaded it right away.
