Only a few days remain until Microsoft's first release of the fall, ReCore, hits store shelves worldwide. Developed by Keiji Inafune and Armature Studio, the game offers a unique spin on a third-person shooter, with tightly integrated puzzle gameplay. All this takes place in a unique desert world, populated by a rogue robot army.

As one of the Xbox One's biggest exclusives of the year, ReCore will also be the first title to support Microsoft's Play Anywhere initiative. As a part of this program, purchasing a digital copy of the game entitles you to both the Windows 10 and Xbox One versions.

But with ReCore only a few days away, have you locked down your copy for launch? We've compiled a list of all the different ways to obtain ReCore and get the pre-order bonuses that matter to you. We've also made sure to include some additional ReCore merchandise, which can be picked up alongside the game next week.

Release date

ReCore won't be releasing across the world simultaneously, with a staggered rollout over the week. On September 13 the game will officially debut in North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific, on both Xbox One and Windows 10. One day later, on September 14, the title will hit the Japanese market for both platforms. ReCore's rollout concludes on September 16 with the game's European launch. This applies to both digital and physical versions of the game.

Preorder Bonuses

Depending on where your copy of ReCore is preordered, you'll receive a range of pre-order bonuses. Some pre-order bonuses are exclusive to specific retailers, making your choice of retailer more complex than the price alone. Below, we've listed some top video game retailers in the US and the preorder bonuses they offer.

ReCore (Standard Disc)

Across most retailers, the standard version of ReCore is being offered for $39.99, with additional bonus content dependent on the retailer (detailed breakdown supplied above). This version of the game is most common and stocked by a majority of video game retailers.

ReCore (Standard Digital)

A digital version of ReCore is also available, sold as a pre-paid code to be redeemed via Xbox Live. Most retailers who stock pre-paid codes will distribute the codes ahead of launch, to give players the chance to pre-load the title. Like digital copies purchased directly from the Xbox Store, these copies of the game will unlock at 12:01 in your time zone. Codes are valid for both Xbox One and Windows 10.

The following retailers stock digital copies of ReCore for Xbox One.

ReCore Collector's Edition

For the enthusiasts out there, ReCore's Collector's Edition delivers what's to be expected from a high-end limited run of the game. Aside from the metal casing and extra goodies, the Collector's Edition's value comes from the 14-inch statue of ReCore's protagonist, Joule. While this edition of the game is marketed as the highest tier available, the physical disc will exclude players from the Xbox Play Anywhere program.

Here's what you can expect from ReCore's Collector's Edition:

  • A full game physical disc of ReCore
  • Hand painted and finished Joule and Mack Premium Statue (14 inches Tall, 6 lbs heavy)
  • Exclusive metal case
  • Exclusive Lithograph and Corebot Alphatbet Decoder Dial

The ReCore Collector's Edition is available from the following top retailers:

The Art of ReCore

The Art of ReCore is a 112-page hardback from Dark Horse Books, which brings together the best conceptual artwork from ReCore's development. Over the course of the book, readers can take a deeper look into the creation of ReCore's unique cast and the world that surrounds them. The book also includes exclusive commentary from the game's creators, including the legendary producer, Keiji Inafune. For those hesistant to purchase the bulky hardback variant, Amazon offers a digital version for Kindle.

The Art of ReCore will be available from the following book retailers:

ReCore Announce Poster

Based on ReCore's inital reveal trailer back in 2015, the ReCore Announce Poster showcases the iconic scene of Joule and Mack traversing the desert of Far Eden. The poster is printed on 29" by 23" 100 pound cover stock, which provides a heavyweight, premium feel. This poster is only available through the official Microsoft Studios storefront, priced at $16.99.

Official ReCore T-Shirt Collection

Microsoft also offers a collection of four ReCore tees, which highlight the game's protagonist and her robot companions. The shirts come in four different styles, each showcasing a silhouette of a character and their corresponding core colour. These shirts are available in both female and male styles at $22 each.

Sizes Small to 2XL are available.
