Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Add-on - £35.99 With Gold Game Pass / £39.99 Without @ Microsoft Store

Posted 2nd Oct 2018
For all those of you who are playing Forza horizon 4 via game pass or even those who bought a cheap standard edition copy, you can get this upgrade which is all of the ultimate edition dlc for £35.99. I'm loving the game on game pass and couldn't help myself to get the dlc.

The Microsoft blurb is:

The Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate Add-Ons Bundle includes the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass, two expansions, VIP Membership, Formula Drift Car Pack and Day One Car Pack. This add-on requires Forza Horizon 4 (game sold separately).

If you buy the dlc but play it on game pass you are effectively buying dlc for a game you don’t own, if your game pass expires you have useless dlc.

I have two years game pass paid up. Was cheap deal. I love Forza and wanted ultimate. Seems silly to pay £90. If I pay this I’m getting ultimate for 2 years guaranteed and if I decide pass isn’t for me when it expires I’ll pick disc version of Forza H4 cheap.

id imagine with these top titles coming to game pass more people will buy DLC for games they don’t own

Apparently all Microsoft games from now on will be added at release and not be removed in the future. Only read this somewhere so don’t hold me to it lol, but yes without paying you lose the game.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has clarified on Twitter that “Xbox One Exclusives will be a permanent part of game pass moving forward.” If it enters the library, then it remains there forever essentially (or until Microsoft shuts down Xbox Live. Whichever comes first).

Ultimate is less than £75 at CDkeys, how much did the 2 years game pass cost you?.

True, I’m subbed up until May 2021 and it cost less than the ultimate edition of FH4. It’s a win win for people who have invested into the pass.
Question - if your internet is down can you play offline?

I think it was £40 a year and 3 months gold. Plus month free. So 8 months gold and 2 years game pass for £80.

you get so much content with the game pass though more than just this game

As an avid gamer the gamepass games don’t interest me much as I’ve either played them the first time around or they’re just old 360 games and I’d rather put my time into something newer.

I have taken the £2 for 2 months offer though and will finish as much as I can of Horizon 4 in that time

Go to one of the DLC add on's. EG " The Best of Bond" car pack and scroll down and you will see "Included in the "Forza Horizon 4 Ultimate add on Bundle" which is the one you want to press on.
Found it now 35.99 is a great deal for ultimate heat left
Don't know whether to wait until the DLC is announced to decide whether the Ultimate pass is worth it or not....I liked the stuff they released for FH3, so hopefully this is of similar quality.

Unlike FH3 with the blizzard and hot wheels being additional to the ultimate edition this time it’s actually including the two expansion packs.
Almost freaked me out as i went to the gamepass option in my games and Forza wasn't there. Even on the main page it said join Gamepass to play, yet I have GP till Nov. I started thinking you had to be a recurring member to get these type of games but then i found the install button

Technically you don't own physical games either. You may own the disc, but what is on the disc is licensed out and owned by the company that published it.

Or possibly until the car/music licences expire, which was after 4 years for all previous Forza titles.

So if anyone still wants to play FH4 in 4 years time, they will need to buy it - preferably discounted - before it is removed digitally, or get a disc copy. (Or it could still be offered as a Game with Gold, like FH, FH2, FM5).

It’s not different - but forza 4 isn’t on Xbox live which has dlc costing £35+ which to me is a significant investment versus old game and most likely very cheap dlc as a result.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is just about to release on retail disc, if you buy the dlc for it and you decide to sell the retail disc (which you do own) say 1 week after release the dlc will become just as useless.

It’s your choice to sell it, and you own it outright , if you buy game pass just for forza 4 you could end up paying way over the retail price to effectively lease the base game, that’s all I’m saying here
Damn it. I bought the Bond car pack on release, didn’t know this one existed. Do you know how I can a refund on the Bond pack?

It’s not like you pay for Gamepass and only get to play Forza. There are 190 titles currently in there, it still a no brainier from my point of view. Especially when you can get it for free via Bing rewards.

also remember microsoft can remove this title from the game pass at any time
Can you share the games on game pass? We get digital, so others in the house can play on their xboxes too. So, would I need one game pass for the house?

I think that’s the bigger issue here. Gamepass is the only service that removes games even if you keep up your subscription, highly unlikely with 1st party games but still possible.
This dlc crap is ridiculous. Why should I pay the price of another game just to get extra cars? Cars that they just deliberately held back to sell as dlc. I love the base game though

Here come the fanboys to tell you that it is worth it because it takes a lot of time to design these DLC cars. The icing on the cake? Day One DLC cars, hidden behind a paywall. Horrible behavior, which wouldn't stand if EA or Ubisoft pulled this trick.

Exactly! I'm happy to pay for dlc that contains actual new content like the hot wheels and blizzard mountain add ons from FH3. But I hate the fact that they have the cars visible to those with the standard edition and prompt you to cough up real money when you try to buy them with your in game currency. I love this series but this type of dlc is a huge flaw imo. I guess if they were a lot cheaper then it might be less of an issue. Or how about charging for special car designs rather than the actual cars?
I like this deal - I get the whole "DLC for a game you don't own thing" but if you are planning to keep Game Pass that's an awesome price. I am loving FH4 - as much as I love all the Horizon games, this one feels like the best one yet in many ways.
I didn't check the recurring subscription (and get 1 month free) option when I got gamepass. Is there any way to recur it and take advantage of the second month free?
Ive gone for this deal, just because the expansion packs where good last time, both where around £15 each if I remember. The car packs are a bit cheeky, but they have always done this for every racing game. Its no different to clothes / emotes / characters in fighting game ? /
The extra cars and the VIP are just a bonus for me. Still amazed with the game, the amount of content is great. But i am getting a little confused and overwhelmed with the amount of content and things Ive opened so far. But after a good weekend session it should make sense.
