Microsoft has announced details of three new Xbox One console bundles.
A trio of new Xbox One console bundles launch today in the United States, offering savings of $50 on the standalone retail price.
All good news we suppose, but it’s tempered a little by the fact that the pack-in games include a free-to-play title, a game players don’t like very much, and another they seem to like even less.
First up is the Xbox One S Fortnite Bundle. Inside this crate of video game goodness you’ll find a shiny new Xbox One S 1TB console, a wireless controller, a full game download of Epic’s Fortnite, plus the Eon cosmetic set download, and 2,000 V-bucks.
Next up is the Xbox One S Battlefield Bundle. In addition to a 1TB console and controller, the bundle includes a Battlefield V Deluxe Edition download code, plus paratrooper apparel that is guaranteed to make your friends green with envy. The pack also includes the chance to dip in the franchise’s history with a free one month subscription to EA Access.
And if you’re looking for a little more power, check out the Xbox One X Fallout 76 Bundle which includes the upgraded, 4K version of Microsoft’s console with a 1TB hard drive, and a copy of Bethesda’s troubled online RPG.
In addition to the $50 savings on these new bundles, new subscribers can also pick up one month’s access to Xbox Game Pass – Microsoft’s impressive all-you-can-play gaming library – for a single dollar.
The new Xbox One bundles are available from the usual retailers, online stores, or via the Microsoft online store.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
