Popping up within any form of fanfare whatsoever in the Xbox Black Friday sale, a twin pack containing both Forza Motorsport 6 and Gears of War Ultimate Edition has appeared on sale. The bundle, which is priced at only $65 / €71 / £55(?) is truly amazing, and fantastic for anyone who doesn’t own either title.
We shall start with Forza Motorsport 6. The game launched in September, and is the best and most content heavy Forza title since Forza 4 on the Xbox 360. Featuring more than 460 cars, each with their own Forza Vista narrations and details, and 26 tracks, nine of which are new to the Forza franchise. These include Nürburgring, Bathurst, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Le Mans, Brands Hatch, Circuit of the Americas, Daytona, Lime Rock Park and more. A variety of gameplay modes, customisable car liveries, tuning set ups and challenges to take part in, it’s filled with hundreds of hours of gameplay.
Then there’s Gears of War Ultimate Edition. A remastered version of the 2006 Gears of War title, the cutscenes have all been remade for the new generation, as well as adding in new missions previously exclusive to the PC version, and the awesome co-op story campaign. Multiplayer in Gears is as hardcore as it gets, and although missing Horde mode (which was added in later games), there’s a bunch of maps and game types to keep players busy for a few months.
Now for the bonus bits! Anyone who buys Gears of War Ultimate Edition before December 31st is entitled to free copies of backwards compatible titles Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War Judgment. Microsoft will send you four digital codes via your Xbox messaging system, allowing you to redeem the four games digitally. That’s four free games on top of two stellar Xbox One exclusives for the price of one game!
This Forza Motorsport 6 and Gears of War Ultimate Edition Twin Pack is amazing value, and a fantastic gift for someone at Christmas, or for people jumping onto Xbox One or Xbox for the first time. There are massive amounts of gameplay in each of these titles, new and old, and if we did ratings at 4-One Gaming, I’d give this bundle an 11 out of 10!
You can find the Twin Pack here, in the Black Friday Xbox deals.
