Microsoft Announces Two Assassin’s Creed Unity Xbox One Bundles

Microsoft is bundling up Assassin’s Creed Unity this holiday, with two games included at the same price as the console alone. There are options for those that want the system with Kinect and those that are happy to use the system without the camera.

The $400 bundle comes with digital versions of Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. The $500 Kinect bundle also includes Dance Central Spotlight, bringing the total number of included games to three.

Both bundles will be available on Sunday, November 2. Players will be able to pre-load Assassin’s Creed Unity in advance of its November 11 release.

While the packaging is unique, the consoles are the standard glossy black. Microsoft is also planning Sunset Overdrive (with a white Xbox One) and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundles (with a special deco and 1 TB hard drive), as revealed at Gamescom. 

 

Our Take
Holiday bundles are getting more diverse, as platform holders look to incentivize as many purchases as possible during this crucial holiday season. For those that haven’t yet jumped in, this amounts to two or three free games. If Assassin’s Creed is your thing and you were thinking about an Xbox One, this is a pretty good reason to make a move.
