Rise of the Tomb Raider 1 TB Xbox One Bundle Announced
$400 system also comes with a copy of the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and some in-game content.
Microsoft has announced a new Xbox One bundle themed around the upcoming Xbox timed-exclusive, Rise of the Tomb Raider. Included in the package is a 1 TB Xbox One console (jet black; no special design), as well as digital copies of Rise of the Tomb Raider and the Definitive Edition of the 2013 reboot.
In addition, the bundle comes with an "exclusive" Tactical Survival Kit DLC pack, which features a new outfit, "upgraded abilities," and weapon skin for main character Lara Croft. The Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox One bundle will sell for $400 and launches on November 3, one week before the game arrives. This will work like the Halo 5: Guardians bundle; though the system will be available on November 3, Rise of the Tomb Raider the game won't actually unlock until its official release date a week later (you can also pre-load it).
In the United States, the bundle will be sold exclusively through Microsoft Stores and Best Buy.
This package adds to Microsoft's already-extensive lineup of bundles themed around popular games. Others currently available include those for Madden NFL 16, FIFA 16, Forza Motorsport 6, and Gears of War Ultimate Edition. In addition, Microsoft will release the Xbox One Elite Bundle in November, while a Halo 5: Guardians system will debut in October.
The Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle is one of five new systems that Microsoft will announce this week. Microsoft will reveal the next four every day through Friday.
Rise of the Tomb Raider launches November 10 for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The Crystal Dynamics-developed action-adventure game is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2016. For more, check out GameSpot's recent preview, "Like Father, Like Daughter." You can also see the game's full list of achievements.
