It’s time for some cheery announcements from Microsoft, and all we can do is rejoice, of course! The company recently confirmed that there’s a new console bundle coming our way. The Redmond giant revamped the traditionally Xbox One S with a new green and brown design that’s found on the in-game ‘dirt block.’ How cool is that?
The Minecraft Xbox One S bundle
The bundle will cost $399.99, and it will include the following goodies:
- Xbox One S Vertical Stand
- 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial
- Xbox One S Limited Edition 1TB Console
- Limited Edition Creeper Xbox Wireless Controller
- Minecraft digital code
- Minecraft Redstone Pack bonus content digital code
- 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial
Minecraft and Xbox One S combined
At the E3 2017, Microsoft revealed an update named Super Duper Graphics Pack destined for Minecraft. Even if Minecraft is famous for its pixel art, the update will arrive with the very first official graphics upgrade, and it will be part of the marketing push for the forthcoming Xbox One X.
In order to show respect for gamers who have built insanely cool mechanical structures in the game using Redstone, Microsoft has also added great Minecraft design to the back of the console as a fan service. Redstone is a real gemstone in Minecraft that can be used to build simple door mechanism, but more advanced gamers can also use it to build more complex and sophisticated structures, such as working computing systems.
The Super Duper Graphics Pack will be released this fall and you can already pre-order the Minecraft bundle. It will start shipping on October 3.
