The fall is always marked by a serious of unfortunate events. Starbucks stops offering those shaken blended lemonades to rot your teeth and empty your wallet, Wal-Mart starts rolling back prices on duct tape and plastic to seal your windows and an absolute metric ton of games arrive on store shelves. Last year around this time, Microsoft hadn’t yet launched Xbox Live’s pre-order system. This year, we do have the pre-order system and a ton of games have all arrived on Xbox Live for pre-order at the same time.
Disney Fantasia Music Evolved
Two different versions of Disney Fantasia Music Evolved are now available for pre-order. Using Kinect, Disney Fantasia Music Evolved is all about combining motion game and thousands of songs. The game takes inspiration from the original Disney Fantasia movie that debuted decades ago. A $59.99 digital bundle version includes just the game and two expansion packs. The $89.99 version includes the game, those two expansion packs plus all the tracks that are available as extra downloadable content.
Sunset Overdrive is that adventure/open world game that lets users customize a character and defend Sunset City from zombies who all owe their existence to a pretty sketchy soft drink. Players move around the world by jumping over any and everything.
There are two versions of Sunset Overdrive available for pre-order for the Xbox One. Sunset Overdrive Pre-Order edition costs $59.99 includes exclusive guns and outfits. The $79.99 Deluxe Edition costs $79.99 and includes everything the Pre-Order edition does plus a season pass to redeem any add-ons and additional missions going forward.
Just Dance 2015
Ubisoft says its Just Dance franchise is the most popular motion gaming franchise there is. Whether that’s true or not is for someone else to figure out, but it’s hard to argue with the format. Get some friends together put in Just Dance 2015 and learn some specific moves while showing off for your friends. There’s only one version of Just Dance 2015 available for pre-order at $49.99. You’ll need a Kinect 2 sensor to play the game of course.
NBA Live 15
NBA Live 15 is another game that keeps it simple and only allows you to pre-order one version. It’s a basketball video game though, so maybe its unfair to compare it with other things that are now available for $59.99. This digital version of the game available for pre-order includes an Ultimate Team Gold Premium Pack.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Finally, there’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, a first-person shooter that should require no introduction. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s plot centers on a military contractor who practically rules the world and is controlled by a vindictive CEO who wields its power like a spear. There are two versions of the game available for pre-order beginning today. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition costs $59.99 includes the game itself, early access on November 3rd, three exclusive weapons and an exoskeleton for multiplayer. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Digital Pro Edition costs $99.99 and includes the game, a season pass for any upcoming downloadable content, a bonus multiplayer map, a digital content pack and early access on November 3rd.
Remember folks, pre-order and pre-download doesn’t actually mean you get to play the game early or anything. Pre-downloading centers around letting you download the game early and store it on your hard drive, you’ll still need to wait until launch day to unlock your pre-ordered and pre-downloaded titles. All of these pre-orders are specific to Microsoft’s Xbox One console.
