See Battlefield 1's Military Green Xbox One S Bundle Unboxed
The $350 system has a 1 TB hard drive and comes with a number of goodies.
As announced previously, Microsoft and EA teamed up for special-edition Xbox One S consoles themed around DICE's upcoming World War I shooter, Battlefield 1. With the game's release coming up soon, Battlefield community manager Dan Mitre has now posted an unboxing video that shows off the system and what it comes with.
Note that what he's showing off is the $350 1 TB military green model that comes with a matching controller and a digital copy of the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition of the game. Also on display in this video is an Xbox One Elite controller, but this does not come with the bundle.
The military green console also includes DLC in the form of the Hellfighter Pack, the Red Baron Pack, and the Lawrence of Arabia pack, as well as a "new visual appearance" of Behemoth vehicles. Additionally, it comes with five Battlepacks and a one-month EA Access subscription.
It goes on sale on October 18 in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, which is the same day that the Early Enlister edition of the game (which can also be purchased separately for $80) goes live. This bundle comes to Europe on October 13. Since it comes with an EA Access membership, people in Europe can start playing the game that day, as that's when the Play First Trial goes live on Xbox One.
The military green Battlefield 1 console is just one of the special systems Microsoft made to celebrate the launch of Battlefield 1. The others include a $300 bundle that comes with a white Xbox One S and a digital copy of the game for $300. Another 500 GB bundle, the "storm grey" variant," also costs $300 but it doesn't come out until November 1. It's sold exclusively at Microsoft Store and Walmart.
Battlefield 1's official release date is October 21, so the storm grey model may not be the package you're looking for if you want to play right away.
Microsoft is a co-marketer for Battlefield 1.
In other news about Battlefield 1, we recently got a good look at the game's single-player campaign in a 12-minute gameplay video. Unlike past Battlefield games, Battlefield 1's campaign features multiple playable characters, spread across five different "War Stories." EA previously explained why it's going with multiple protagonists, stating that, "We felt that to have one character hopping through those different settings wouldn't be as immersive or totally respectful to the setting."
