Buy Now for Forza Horizon 4 Pre-Order Bonuses

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.
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.
