You know how you know the holiday season’s here? The Xbox One console bundles have begun. You stroll up to the store, ready to kick some tires, but maybe not buy anything, and Microsoft appears as if by magic and says in that silky-smooth voice, “How can I get you into an Xbox One today?”
This week, Microsoft will be announcing five Xbox One bundles. They started with a Tomb Raider bundle on Monday evening and should have another one soon.
For $400 – the price of a bare bones, standard Xbox One – you can pick up the console and digital copies of both the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. The bundle also comes with some minor cosmetic bonuses to use in-game. The system itself is not themed, though, but rather the standard jet-black.
The console launches a week before Rise of the Tomb Raider – November 3. The game won’t be available until a week later, so Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will have to hold you over if you decide to pick this bundle up.
Without the bundle, Rise of the Tomb Raider releases November 10 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. In the meantime, check out our preview of the game.
