The week of Xbox One bundle announcements continues to roll on. Yesterday Microsoft announced a Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle that includes a 1 TB Xbox One, and digital copies of Rise of the Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Today Microsoft has unveiled an Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle that includes Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay and a full-game download of Ori and the Blind Forest. Here is a listing of what is included in the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle:
- Experiencing the original Gears of War rebuilt from the ground up in 1080p, including 60FPS competitive multiplayer with 19 maps and six game modes and five campaign chapters never released on console.
- Accessing the entire Xbox 360 Gears or War collection to play on Xbox One through Backward Compatibility at no additional cost when you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live by Dec. 31, 2015.
- Playing a jaw-dropping collection of 30 iconic games with Rare Replay, from Battletoads and Banjo-Kazooie to Perfect Dark and more.
- And immersing themselves in the critically acclaimed action-platformer, Ori and the Blind Forest.
This bundle is appealing for the simple fact that on the surface it includes 3 games. However beneath the surface there is a lot of value here! Take Rare Replay which includes 30 titles alone, then couple it with Microsoft's offering of the original Gears of War games for Xbox 360 via backwards compatibility for free with purchase and you are pretty much walking away with 35 games between the two bundled titles.
The Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle will be available starting in October for $399 USD. The games included in this bundle are all top notch titles and certainly make this bundle worthy of consideration this holiday season.
