Xbox One S Prepares for War with Battlefield 1 Bundle
Win in white, or go green.
If you’re in the market for an Xbox One S, but neither of the two previous bundles grabbed your eye, then maybe this is the one that will do the trick for you.
Microsoft has announced two new Xbox One S bundles which are centered around Electronic Arts and DICE’s upcoming release of Battlefield 1, but with some slight differences between them.
First up is the 500GB bundle, which comes with a standard white Xbox One S console, a full-game download of Battlefield 1 Standard Edition, and one month of EA Access, which allows users to play EA games for a limited time before they’re released as well as unlimited access to The Vault, a collection of the best Xbox One games from EA that continues to grow. This bundle will be available on October 21st for $399.99 CAD.
Then there’s the 1TB “Special Edition” bundle, which comes with a military green version of the Xbox One S console, complete with matching stand and controller. Then there’s the full-game download of the Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, along with a boatload of additional content in the “Hellfighter” Pack, the “Red Baron” Pack, the “Lawrence of Arabia” Pack, a new visual appearance of the Behemoths, five Battlepacks, one month of EA Access, and a partridge in a pear tree (Note: Partridge in a pear tree not available in all areas, so don’t bother asking). All this for just $449.99 CAD, $50 more than the other bundle, and over a week earlier to boot, as it hits on October 13th.
Seriously, the only reason I can imagine not to go with this one instead is if you hate military green.
While neither bundle will be out for at least a month, you can always secure yours with a pre-order at participating retailers.
