There are several good reasons to put your Forza Horizon 4 pre-order in and reserve a copy of the new Forza game before the release date this fall. This Forza Horizon 4 pre-order guide will walk you through why you should pre-order and why you shouldn’t pre-order Forza Horizon 4.
The Forza Horizon 4 release date is October 2nd, with a special early release date for the Ultimate Edition.
There are three Forza Horizon 4 editions to choose from. Two are physical or digital, while one is only physical. This is a Play Anywhere title, so if you buy it digitally you can also play on Windows 10.
Here’s a walkthrough of the reasons you should buy Forza Horizon 4 today, and the reasons you should wait until the game is out, or at least until closer to the release date to buy it.
Buy Now for Forza Horizon 4 Pre-Order Bonuses
There are a number of Forza Horizon 4 pre-order bonuses that you can lock in depending where you buy the game. These are only available if you pre-order, but you shouldn't need to buy today to get that.
You don't need to pre-order to get the extras that come with the special Forza Horizon 4 editions. Those are included in the price you pay for them. You can still get some extra items by pre-ordering.
It's very likely that the bonus clothing items listed at Walmart and GameStop are digital versions for your character in the game, not physical Forza Horizon 4 gear that you can wear.
The wording includes mentions of "Live the Horizon Life", and it would be a major surprise to see a real Forza Horizon 4 bomber jacket included with the standard edition of the game.
Additionally you get a Forza Horizon 4 Formula Drift Car Pack when you pre-order any edition. This is likely a code that comes even if you buy the game after the release date.
