Downloading a game from online storefronts like Steam or the Xbox Live Marketplace is the modern equivalent of waiting for your modem to connect to the internet circa 1998: They're both long, arduous processes that we all know can happen much faster than they do. Check your in-game inventory and you'll see a lovely Founder's Pack chock-full of cosmetic items: two legendary sets each containing shirt, pants, armor, helmet, and boots, three legendary axes, three legendary bows, a full jumpsuit collection, and 10 fan gifts to further stock up your dressing room with a variety of styles for your clothes and weapons. The system has been implemented for "select English language titles" in Xbox Game Pass and will roll out for other languages in the future. Instead of waiting for the entire game to download, FastStart allows you to start playing the game as soon as possible by prioritzing the download of files and assets that are needed to begin playing. You can group together whatever you'd like, assign custom names, reorganize your groups, and assign them to Home. We've started you off with a Group that should look very familiar - your Pins!
