  • Xbox Wireless Controller
  • Forza Horizon 3 with the Hot Wheels expansion – a $69.98 value (you'll get access to play on both Xbox One S and Windows 10 PC)
  • 1-month Xbox Game Pass subscription with unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games
  • 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial to experience the most advanced multiplayer gaming network

The bundle comes ahead of the release of the next entry in the Forza franchise, Forza Motorsport 7, which is expected to release on September 29. For now, you can grab the bundle at the Microsoft Store, Amazon, and other retailers.
