Kicking off the Gamescom information slaw, Microsoft came out
ice-picks-a-swingin' by revealing that the next entry in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise from Crystal Dynamics would be "exclusive" to Xbox One in Holiday 2015 -- whether this means it's simply a timed exclusive is yet to be revealed, but we'll dig and let you know.
The publisher also revealed three new Xbox One family bundles for the Holiday period with FIFA 15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Sunset Overdrive all getting their own retail space as part of an Xbox One console bundle.
Unveiled today, three new console bundles launching later this year offer unparalleled options for purchasing Xbox One at the best value this holiday.
- Available for pre-order today, the Xbox One Limited Edition “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” Bundle launches starting Nov. 3 for $599 RP1 at select retailers, featuring a massive 1TB hard drive, custom console, controller and Limited Edition exoskeleton, plus a digital copy of the “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare” Day Zero Edition.
- Insomniac’s Ted Price unveiled the Xbox One Special Edition “Sunset Overdrive” Bundle, featuring a sleek white console and wireless controller, a digital copy of the game, and special Day One edition in-game items – all for $499 ERP1 starting Oct. 30, available for pre-order today.
- An exclusive “FIFA15” bundle for fans in Europe was also announced including an Xbox One Console, Xbox One Controller, 14 Day Live Trial, HDMI Cable, Chat Headset, a digital token for “FIFA 15” and an Ultimate Team Legends Gold Pack, available for pre-order today, launching from Sept. 25 for $529 ERP1 while stocks last.
