Xbox One gamers begin to receive Day One content for their digitally downloaded games

Most gamers who purchased their Xbox One on Day One where privy to special content included with the Day one edition of their games. If you were one of the many users (including myself) who chose to download your games digitally though, you were left out. Now Xbox users have begun to receive download codes to digitally obtain the Day One content that was left out from games such as Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, and Forza Motorsport 5.

If you purchased a Day One edition of an Xbox One game, then you should be checking your Xbox LIVE account for messages from the official Xbox LIVE gamertag. I received the Ryse: Son of Rome gladiator extras first and then twelve minutes later received the Forza Motorsport 5 exclusive car pack.

So there you go, if you digitally purchased a Day One Edition of an Xbox One launch title and expected to receive your perks – check your Xbox Live account messages now for the download codes. Don’t despair if nothing is there though, as it may take time for the system to get to everyone.

Game on, WPCentral fans!

  • Sad day we live in.... Day one content is a joke. Bring back full game releases with constant updates, and the ability given to the community to mod.

  • Why do I even bother reading comments anymore? It seems to be immature people saying immature things.
  • I accidentally deleted my message with the code for Forza 5! Any ideas how to retrieve it? I don't think that's possible. Oooops! :)
  • ReasonantEcho. You should have received both an email and xbl message. So whichever one you deleted, retrieve the code from the other
