Microsoft launches 4 new Xbox One S bundles in time for the holidays
Just ahead of the holiday season, Microsoft has outed a quartet of new Xbox One S bundles.
If you're looking to forego the upcoming Xbox One X and grab an Xbox One S instead, Microsoft has some new options for you. The company has announced four new Xbox One S bundles, each of which is packed with additional game content alongside the console itself.
Here's a look at all of the bundles, all of which are available now:
- Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle - $279 / £229 GBP / €279 EUR
- Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle - £229 GBP / €279 EUR
- Xbox One S Starter Bundle - $279 / £229 GBP / €279 EUR
- Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle - $279
In terms of content, each bundle is fairly self-explanatory about what is included. The Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, for example, includes the full Minecraft game along with a download code for the Minecraft Explorer's Pack and Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 - Complete Adventure. The Ultimate Halo Bundle, which is only available online and at Walmart in the U.S., is an odd addition because it looks to be a repackaged version of the Halo Collection Bundle. Packed alongside the console are Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The Rocket League bundle is only available in the UK and select European regions, and it includes a full download code for vehicular soccer game Rocket League. Lastly, the Starter Bundle eschews bundling a single game in favor of offering a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass with its catalog of more than 100 games.
Like other bundles, each of these new consoles includes an Xbox Wireless Controller, along with a three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold. All bundles except the Starter Bundle also pack one month of Xbox Game Pass.
