Is the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle DLC worth it?

Asia's Tech News Daily

Best answer: Yes, the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle DLC is worth it for those who want the best experience in FH5, especially if you intend to play through Xbox Game Pass or a physical disc. The Premium Add-Ons Bundle includes almost every optional DLC for Forza Horizon 5 for significantly less than it would to purchase individually, making it a good value for the interested.

Value in context

Forza Horizon 5 will include mountains of content by itself, but Playground Games is letting players expand their experience even further with a series of optional DLC add-ons and expansions. Depending on the edition of Forza Horizon 5 you preorder, you may get one or more of these DLCs included in your purchase. For those who want to enhance their FH5 experience without shelling out for a more expensive edition, or are playing through a different method, there are plenty of ways to get more out of Forza Horizon 5.

The Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle includes practically every optional DLC add-on at launch for considerably less than it’d cost to purchase those DLCs individually. Effectively, this amounts to buying Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition (the most expensive FH5 tier) without the base game included. The value of the Premium Add-Ons Bundle changes depending on how you plan to play or buy Forza Horizon 5.

If you’re purchasing the Standard or Deluxe Editions of FH5 digitally through the Microsoft Store or Steam, and you’re considering the Premium Add-Ons Bundle, you’re much better off simply buying the Premium Edition. This saves you money (about $10) and gives you everything in one simple package.

On the other hand, those who are playing Forza Horizon 5 through Xbox Game Pass, or buying a physical copy of the game (which only comes in the Standard Edition), could gain a lot from the Premium Add-Ons Bundle. This is a great way to augment your physical disc or Xbox Game Pass subscription with all the optional DLC. Even better, Xbox Game Pass subscribers get an automatic 10% discount on the Premium Add-Ons Bundle, saving you an extra $5. Ultimately, this is the main reason the Premium Add-Ons Bundle DLC exists.

If you pick up the Standard Edition of Forza Horizon 5 for launch and are on the fence about purchasing additional DLC, there’s a chance the Premium Add-Ons Bundle will eventually go on sale, making it an easier pill to swallow. Of course, you can always pick up the individual DLCs you’re interested in and purchase them separately (just keep in mind this will end up costing much more if you buy them all).

What’s included

Here’s everything you need to know about the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle, and what’s included:

  • Early access. Preordering the Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle nets you four days of early access, letting you play Forza Horizon 5 on Nov. 5, 2021, instead of Nov. 9.

    • Forza Horizon 5 Expansion One has not been revealed yet, but will be included in Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle when it does eventually launch
    • Forza Horizon 5 Expansion One is available through Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition, the Premium Add-Ons Bundle, and the Expansions Bundle, but is not available as a standalone purchase (right now)
  • Forza Horizon 5 Expansion Two. Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle includes Forza Horizon 5 Expansion Two, which is one of two unannounced DLC expansions coming to Forza Horizon 5 in the future.
    • Forza Horizon 5 Expansion Two has not been revealed yet, but will be included in Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle when it does eventually launch
    • Forza Horizon 5 Expansion Two is available through Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition, the Premium Add-Ons Bundle, and the Expansions Bundle, but is not available as a standalone purchase (right now)
  • Not included: The Forza Horizon 5 Premium Add-Ons Bundle includes almost all optional DLCs for FH5, but does not include the Forza Horizon 5 Treasure Map. The Treasure Map DLC is only available as a standalone purchase.

In our Forza Horizon 5 preview, we saw that FH5 is almost guaranteed to be one of the best Xbox racing games. Forza Horizon 5 officially releases on Nov. 9, 2021 (Nov. 5 with early access), and is now available to preorder.
