New Xbox One S bundles include Rocket League, Minecraft, and Halo

We're still in the midst of October, but the holiday shopping season will soon be here, and Microsoft has gotten an early jump on things for those planning on buying an Xbox One this year. The company has announced four new console bundles that include a popular game and its DLC or other digital content, along with a white 500GB Xbox One S and a wireless controller.

The first is the Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, which is priced at $279 in the US and comes with a digital copy of Minecraft and the Minecraft Explorer's pack, which includes DLC like the Chinese Mythology Mashup, Natural Texture Pack, Battle and Beasts Skin Pack, and Campfire Tales Skin Pack. Also featured in this bundle is a download code for the full game of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold, and a 1 month Xbox Game Pass subscription, which is Xbox's new game-streaming service.

Next up is the Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle, which sadly won't be available to gamers in the US. This package includes the massively popular rocket-powered-car-soccer game Rocket League, along with 3 months of Xbox Live Gold, and a 1 month Xbox Game Pass. The bundle is priced at 229 pounds in the UK, and 270 euros in European markets.

Those picking up an Xbox One just to dive into the Halo series will want to check out the Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle, which will be exclusive to Walmart in the US, for a price of $279. This comes with digital copies of Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, with the later collecting the first four Halo games. A 1 month Xbox Game Pass and 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold are also included.

Lastly is the Xbox One S Starter Bundle, also priced at $279. While this package doesn't include a specific full game, it lets gamers sample a wide variety of titles available on the Xbox platform with a 3 month Xbox Game Pass and 3 months of Xbox Live Gold.
