Microsoft has announced four new Xbox One S bundles in a post on Xbox Wire, three of which are tied to specific games while the fourth is meant to highlight the company’s Netflix-like Game Pass service.
Each bundle will cost $279 and will include a 500 GB white Xbox One S, a wireless controller, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold, and 1 month of Xbox Game Pass.
The Ultimate Halo Bundle will include codes for both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, giving fans access to every numbered entry in the iconic series so far. This bundle is exclusive to Walmart in the United States.
The Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle will include download codes for Minecraft and the Minecraft Explorer’s pack, which features a number of skin and texture packs. The bundle also includes a download code for Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 – The Complete Adventure.
Each of these bundles comes with one month of Xbox Game Pass, which gives players access to over 100 titles for $10 a month.
The Xbox One S Starter Bundle, however, includes 3 months of the service, giving players access to the vast library for an extended period of time.
Microsoft’s lineup of Xbox consoles will grow later this year when the Xbox One X is released on November 7, and if you didn’t know, each Xbox One X has a tiny Master Chief riding a scorpion inside.
Microsoft recently confirmed that those who upgrade to an Xbox One X will not be able to get a free Kinect adapter like original Xbox One S adopters did.
