Just received this in my inbox. Didn't find any threads about it.



EDIT: I don't know why. I have 7 years of Gold and I have Xbox One preordered achievement. Might be related.
EDIT2: I also have the highest tier on Xbox Live Rewards for achievements unlocked. Might also be related.

EDIT3:

We considered a variety of things like Gamerscore, LIVE tenure, & other factors in markets where #XboxOne is available.

EDIT4: (there is still hope for you who have not received anything yet)

You are definitely correct, we are giving away free gifts to all qualified users all over the regions where the xbox one is available. I believe the emails are already sent out starting today and it is by batch or waves, which is what we have been informed.

That some good news. :) Kudos to MS for doing something awesome.

*refreshes inbox*

In fact, how does Microsoft know you are getting an XOne John Caboose? Did you pre-order direct or something?

Wow, when I read the thread I thought it was snarky (like maybe they were offering the 1-character version as a "free game"). But nope, I got it too. 6 years Gold here, I think.

I just got one as well. The email said all characters will be unlocked, so ya, sounds like the full $20 version. Pretty happy!!

The game is free to play but you buy characters. This is the game with all characters unlocked.
