How to get Forza Horizon 4 for cheap?

If it was on steam maybe I can hope for a steam sale. But it's exclusively on the Microsoft Store, apparently.
Any way it would be on sale?
Thx.

Technically you can get it if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass... since it's a Play Anywhere title, it should also be available when you log in on your PC. IIRC there are free 14 day trials of Gamepass, and there was recently a $1 month promo.

Here's a step by step instruction how to do it
Games: XBox Live: M1GO

Gear: Fujifilm X-Pro2 | Canon A-1

Thanks. Any idea how/where I can get updated on the next $1 promotion?

Hot deals forum. You just missed a $2 for 2 months deal that was posted there recently

You'll have to wait for a sale.

Microsoft usually does a spring sale promotion around the end of march to mid april and no doubt it'll be on sale then probably for 40-50% off.

Yeah, it's all the same store, the license you buy for the xbox copy also allows you to download it on the xbox store.
Just keep an eye on the Xbox game deals on xbox live, there is usually a pretty big thread about it because its a pretty big sale.

Here's what I did (you will need a time machine)

Bought discounted Xbox cards from Costco during the Masterpass promo.

$115 = $104 = $25 Discount = $79 (for $115) which is about a 32% discount.

Then I waited for a Microsoft sale and also bought Game Pass to stack that discount too. I also used my reward points to buy a $10 xbox card. Used VPN to obtain pints on US site too

I ended up paying $97.49 for the Ultimate Edition which works out to about $56.50 of actual money spent

More than a time machine, I'd also need the moon and planets to realign perfectly again in order for me to do what you did.

I ended up picking up a standard copy of it at CDkeys.com for $47 CAD... (St. Patrick's Sale)

Not looking to race competitively nor am I interested in the drifting map of the DLC Fortune Island; just casual driving across the UK countryside, so I think I'm good.

Now I'm keeping my ears and eyes open for the next DLC, whatever it may be. Hope it's a bunch of tarmac/roads with beautiful scenery.

Then you bought the right game because there's literally no way to do that even if you wanted to
