‘Battlefield 1’ gets some classy Xbox One S consoles for October release

Battlefield 1 releases on both current-gen consoles and PC next month, and if you still haven’t picked up a new machine yet, Microsoft has just the thing to get you leading bayonet charges and sniping unsuspecting soldiers in no time.

Available on October 21, the Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Bundle includes a white 500GB console as well as a code to download the digital version of the game. But you won’t be stuck just playing one game — also included is a month of EA Access, which grants you full access to games like Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Titanfall, and Battlefield 4. Your progress will be saved should you choose to extend your membership beyond the one-month trial.

United States residents can also purchase a “Storm Grey” package, which includes all the same contents as the white bundle but in a different color. Both bundles will retail for $299, and are available to pre-order right now.

If you’re willing to hand over a little more cash, you’ll want to consider the “Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Special Edition Bundle” instead. It contains a beautiful olive drab 1TB Xbox One S with a matching stand and controller, as well as the “Early Enlister Deluxe Edition” of Battlefield 1, which grants players access to the game a few days before its official release. To top it off, the bundle also includes three DLC packs, “new visual appearance” for the giant Behemoth vehicles, five Battlepacks, and a month of EA Access. It will launch on October 13 — a week before the game releases — for $350.

Should you buy any Battlefield 1 Xbox One S console bundle at GameStop, you’ll be given a physical copy of the game instead of a code. Battlefield 1 releases for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 21.
