New game bundles are heading to Xbox One this fall
Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) revealed plans for the future of Xbox last month at E3 2016, which includes a new slimmer version of the existing Xbox One model. The Xbox One S has 40% smaller body than the current Xbox One, improved controller with texture grip and Bluetooth connectivity, HDR support, 4K video and game support (upscaled).
Microsoft has thus far announced three models; 500GB, 1TB and a special 2TB model that is going to be the first one available from this August. People might see game bundles as well once Xbox One S is available. Twitter user Ekimhas provided us a preview of Halo 5: Guardian’s 1TB Xbox One Game Bundle. Check it out below:
Additionally, elsewhere in a different tweet, the user also revealed that Gears of War 4 edition is on the way as well. It will feature a unique theme that resembles the Gears of War 4 Elite Controller. There is not any word on when the bundles will be available but Gears of War 4 bundle should be available for pre-order at least a month before the game’s October release date.
We also do not know if 500GB and 2TB versions will get the same bundles or not. Since Halo 5: Guardians bundle features no special theme, it should be priced at the standard $249. It is logical because Halo 5 already had a limited edition treatment last year.
Although available for pre-order at retailers, Microsoft has not revealed when the 500GB and 1TB versions will be available. The news regarding Gears of War 4 bundle does suggest that 1TB model will arrive by October in time for Gears of War 4’s launch. The 500GB model could launch during the same time or a bit later.
