New Xbox One Bundle Features Gears of War, Ori and Rare Replay
Xbox has announced yet another Xbox One bundle to help usher in the holiday jumps to current-gen. This time, the COGs, Ori and Rare are joining the fight.
Microsoft revealed their latest Xbox One holiday bundle. Unlike the November set announced yesterday that features Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Rise of the Tomb Raider, this bundle is coming out sometime next month. So what's the difference between these two sets? The games. Instead of exploring ruins and solving puzzles with Lara Croft, we're going into the trenches with the COGs. We're platforming our way through the Blind Forest. Lastly, we're reliving Rare's video game history. That's right, this Xbox One bundle is being packaged with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay and Ori and the Blind Forest.
Just in time for the Xbox One's upcoming Backwards Compatibility function, this bundle will include (presumably physical) copies of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and Rare Replay, while Ori and the Blind Forest will be a digital download. You'll get all 30 iconic games of Rare's history, which includes Battletoads, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark and more. You'll get to relive Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad's balls-to-the-wall fight against the Locust. And you'll get the action-platforming fun of Ori.
Priced at $399, this bundle also includes the new Xbox One wireless controller with its 3.5mm headset jack. Don't forget that owning Gears of War: Ultimate Edition means you'll be unlocking the entire Gears anthology via Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility.
