    Are you itching to get behind the wheel and burn some rubber? Forza Horizon 3 doesn’t officially launch until next Tuesday (9/27), but if you’re willing to put out $99.99 for the Ultimate Edition, you can race right now.

    The Ultimate Edition includes the Car Pass, which is essentially a season pass for race cars. You’ll get six monthly packs of seven cars each, ready to race. The Ultimate Edition also grants you access to the Forza Horizon 3 VIP club, which unlocks a further five exotic cars and access to some exclusive online events. Finally, you’ll get the Motorsport All-Stars pack, which includes 10 more of “the hottest modern race cars”.

    Forza Horizon 3 is the first game to support HDR output on the Xbox One S. You’ll need one of those lovely 4K HDR-capable TVs to enjoy the advanced rendering, but Microsoft has put together a page to make sure you get the most for your money. (Note that we're only talking about HDR output, not full 4K rendering.)

    Speaking of money, buying all the items in the Ultimate Edition would run you $120. That means the Ultimate Edition could be considered a $20 discount. And you get to race early. Is that enough motivation to get you racing over the weekend? Let us know in the comments.

    I pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition and I'm absolutely loving it! Cruising around whilst listening to Hospital Records Radio! Best £80 I've spent on a game, ever.

    Pre ordered it in July but when I preordered on the my phone hadn't realised that i got to choose what day I wanted it Friday or tueday and I get it tueday and your wondering it was ultimate there's no point getting the deluxe it's a rip off if you don't want to spend £80 on a game then just get the norm for £45 the deluxe for £64 ain't worth it!!

      Not really. You may have your car fully upgraded but if you don't know how to drive it then you wont get very far

      Not to mention if you're up against somebody who knows how to tune. Which in Forza, 1 outta every 3 people do lol.

    I want to wait a few weeks to see if the game is actually worth buying (unlike FH2). The original Horizon had the perfect multiplayer setup and FH2 has a terrible one so I only play the first one now.

    It's more than enough motivation for me lol. Been a die hard Forza fan since day one and a most def fan of the Horizon series. The handling in this one is taking me a second to get used to, but it is without a doubt one of the best racing games I'v played in a while. Been playing since 12AM lol.

      For sure! I've always gotten bored of the regular Forza's but Horizon is always a blast and I love what they did with this game.

      I went hard in Forza 2 and played the others quite a bit. Wasnt until 5 that I went hard in it again and then when the Horizon series came I was in love. This is by far the best one yet.

    I highly recommend this game to any racing fan. I've been playing it since Midnight on PC and have to say they really improved it and out did themselves with this iteration of the Horizon series

    Should also note that the DLC Expansion Pass will be $25 vs $35 for those without the Ultimate Edition.
