Xbox One X: Every New Bundle Revealed At Gamescom 2018--Fallout 76, Battlefield 5, And More
A bundle of bundles.
Microsoft made a bunch of announcements at Gamescom 2018 during its Xbox Insider broadcast--there are new special edition controllers, and lots of new Xbox One gameplay footage to pore over--but new Xbox One bundles were the consistent thread throughout the multi-hour presentation.
Here are all of the bundles Microsoft announced at the show, including one that contains a special edition Xbox One X, along with their release dates and prices. These hit many of the fall's major releases and offer a discount over buying the system and accompany game separately, so they're worth a look if you're in the market.
Forza Horizon 4 Xbox One X Bundle (1TB), Oct. 2, $500
The same day Forza Horizon 4 becomes available, you can purchase a digital download of the game with an Xbox One X for $500. The bundle includes the standard wireless controller, one month of Xbox Game Pass, a 14-day trial of Xbox Live gold, and a digital version of last year's well-received racing sim, Forza Motorsport 7.
Xbox One X Shadow of the Tomb Raider Bundle (1TB), Oct. 2, $500
Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches on Sept. 14, but a few short weeks later the game will be included as part of a new Xbox One X Bundle on Oct. 2. In addition to the 1TB Xbox One X, wireless controller, and a digital copy of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, this package will include 1 free month of Xbox Game Pass and a 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold.
Xbox One X Gold Rush Special Edition Battlefield V Bundle (1TB), Oct. 16, $500
If you already know you want Battlefield V and an Xbox One X, you will have the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone on Oct. 16. For $500, you can purchase a bundle that includes a special edition 1TB Xbox One X that fades from gold to black, versus the standard all-black version. This console will come packed with the Deluxe Edition of Battlefield V, the backwards-compatible Xbox 360 game Battlefield 1943, a 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold, and one month of both EA Access and Xbox Game Pass.
The Deluxe edition of Battlefield V allows you to access the game prior to its official launch on Oct. 18, and grants you complimentary in-game content: five paratrooper outfits, 20 weekly airlifts (each with a customization item,) and more starter assignments. This limited edition console is gone when it sells out, but a comparable bundle with a standard black Xbox One X will also be sold for the same price on Oct. 16.
Xbox One X Fallout 76 Bundle (1TB), Nov. 14, $500
When Fallout 76 releases on November 14, you will also have the option of picking the digital version of the game up as a bundle with a standard 1TB Xbox One X. This package also includes one wireless controller, and one free month of both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. This bundle will be available for $500 MSRP.
Microsoft also announced several Xbox One S bundles for the same games, with the exception of Fallout 76, listed below.
- Xbox One S Battlefield™ V Bundle (1TB), $300
- Xbox One S Shadow of the Tomb Raider Bundle (1TB), $300
- Xbox One S Forza Horizon 4 Bundle (1TB), $300
