Microsoft has announced that a new Xbox One S bundle is now available, and included with the 500GB console (which, they note, features “High Dynamic Range for video and gaming, premium audio, a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and 4K video streaming with partners like Netflix and Hulu”) and wireless controller, you’ll also get to start your choice of engine with the included copy of Forza Horizon 3, an open world driving game which takes you across the Outback as you play host to the latest Horizon Festival. What’s more, you’ll have access to the game on your Windows 10 PC, for when getting in front of the TV is out.
Better still, this bundle also includes the Hot Wheels expansion pack for Forza Horizon 3 that was released earlier this year, a one-month subscription for Xbox Game Pass, and 14 days of Xbox Live Gold.
All this can be yours for $349 CAD, and it’s available now at participating retailers and the Microsoft Store, where as of this writing, you can also get a free select game, $15 off a select Xbox Wireless Controller, and $10 off Xbox Live Gold membership (your choice of 3 or 6 months) for no extra cost.
