Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle raids tombs this holiday

Microsoft has just announced a new Xbox One console bundle for this holiday season, this time featuring the new Rise of the Tomb Raider game. As the follow-up the 2013 release of Tomb Raider, itself a reboot of the near 20-year old series, Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of this holiday season's biggest titles. And seeing as how console/game bundles always turn out to be big sellers, much to the chagrin of GameStop, it makes sense that Microsoft would make this their latest value package.

The Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle will be available starting in November. Priced at $399, the package includes the new 1TB model of the Xbox One, a digital download copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider, and the Tactical Survival Kit Content Pack, which features a character outfit and weapon skins.

For those looking to jump in to the survival-action series of Tomb Raider for the first time, this bundle will also be a great choice, as it will come with a redemption code to download Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, the HD remake of the previous title that re-introduced gamers to the character of Lara Croft.

This new Xbox One package joins a growing list of bundles available this year for the console, including the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition bundle, and the previously released Forza Motorsport 6 Limited Edition console, and the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bundle.
