Microsoft Offering Xbox One Bundles With Two Bonus Games, Including Mass Effect: Andromeda

by Robert Workman


Still haven’t gotten an Xbox One yet, eh? Well, there’s a pretty good deal in place over at the Microsoft Store that can land you one of the hottest titles out there for free right now.

The retailer has announced a new promotion where two free games are given out with the purchase of an Xbox One S bundle, starting at $299. These include bundles that include Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2, Gears of War 4, FIFA 16, Battlefield 1, and the Halo collection, amongst others.

As for the two games that you can add to the bundle, that’s actually up to you. A number of titles are available to include – and that list also happens to have Mass Effect: Andromeda. Yep, you can pretty much get the newest game and EA and BioWare’s long-running sci-fi series for no charge, along with other favorites like Watch Dogs 2, For Honor and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, depending on what you’re really in the mood for.

Better still, all of the bundles appear to be in stock, including the 2TB Gears of War 4 system that’s going for $399 and comes with a limited edition system and controller, along with Gears of War 4. That’s a swell deal if you’re looking to load up on action, as you can pair up the system with Mass Effect: Andromeda and For Honor and really keep busy over the course of a weekend.

Granted, what games you choose are completely up to you, but it’s nice to see some newer titles up for grabs, instead of older, cheaper titles being offered as part of the deal. But, more than likely, the deal probably won’t last too long, so if you’ve been looking to get that ideal Xbox One package, this may be a good time to jump.

Feel free to check out the Microsoft Store page and see what works best for you. It never hurts to browse around and see what games are available as part of the deal, although some of you will likely add Andromeda without hesitation, considering the hype behind that title.

Happy shopping!
