Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest game from Dark Souls studio From Software. It launched on Friday, March 22, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Normally $60, if you’re in the market for an Xbox One, you can get Sekiro for free right now. For a limited time, Newegg is including a free copy of Sekiro with a number of Xbox One consoles and bundles.

It’s a wicked good deal, especially when you consider that some of the consoles on Newegg already come with recently released games, too. In Sekiro, you play as a one-armed shinobi during Japan’s Sengoku period. Unlike Dark Souls and Bloodborne, the protagonist Wolf has fast movement speed and combat revolves around perfectly timed deflections and parries. If you like your action games brutally difficult, Sekiro is right up your alley.

Newegg has eight different Xbox One consoles and bundles that come with Sekiro right now.

Xbox One S 1TB Console

A white Xbox One S with 1TB of storage for $250. It doesn’t come with any additional games besides Sekiro.

Xbox One S 1TB Battlefield V Bundle

For $300, you’ll get the white Xbox One S bundled with Battlefield V and Sekiro.

Xbox One S 1TB The Division 2 Bundle

For $300, you’ll get the white Xbox One S bundled with The Division 2 and Sekiro. Considering The Division 2 also launched in March, this bundle offers the most bang for your buck.

Xbox One S 1TB Anthem Bundle

For $300, you can have the Xbox One S with Anthem and Sekiro. BioWare’s loot shooter launched with mixed reviews and some serious bugs and performance issues. Anthem can still be fun at times, but The Division 2 is a better loot shooter.

Xbox One X 1TB Console

The more powerful Xbox One X is available for $449 with Sekiro.

Xbox One X 1TB The Division 2 Bundle

For $500, you’ll get the Xbox One X with The Division 2 and Sekiro. This Xbox One X bundle is probably the best value as it comes with two recently released titles, both of which are very good.

Xbox One X 1TB NBA 2K19 Bundle

For $500, you can get the awesome Xbox One X alongside two incredibly different but great games: NBA 2K19 and Sekiro.

Xbox One X 1TB Metro: Exodus Bundle

This Xbox One X bundle comes with post-apocalyptic shooter Metro: Exodus and Sekiro.

There haven't been many complaints about Xbox Series S since it launched in 2020. Serving as the more affordable sibling of the premium Xbox Series X, it plays all the same games yet works at a lower resolution – allowing it to carry a nice price tag of $250. Users have reported a few common issues with Xbox Series S over the years, however, which run the gamut from Quick Resume crashing to HDMI-CEC not registering a connection.

Running into problems with your Xbox Series S? Here's a look at the eight most common Xbox Series S problems, along with how to fix them. If you can't fix the problem on your own, things might be more serious than expected. In that case, be sure to contact Microsoft for advanced troubleshooting or to get your console replaced.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Two squads of heroes clash in an Overwatch 2 trailer.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

The best external hard drives for Xbox Series X
xbox all access price pre orders retailers 2

The Xbox Series X's 1TB sounds excellent on paper, but in reality, Microsoft's console only offers about 802GBs of storage due to updates and the operating system. You may find yourself filling up your space quickly, especially if you're looking to download every new title that becomes available on Xbox Game Pass. Let's face it, Call of Duty alone takes well over 100GBs of storage — and with the system targeting 4K resolution, games are only growing in size.

The Xbox Series X is compatible with any external hard drive up to 16TB of storage. Games optimized for the Xbox Series X can only be stored on, but not played from, an external drive due to the games being designed to take advantage of faster loading speeds and Xbox Velocity Architecture. However, when it comes to storage for your Xbox Series X, there are many options to choose from as your game library expands. We have compiled a list of external drives that will make your gaming experience seamless. Note that they will come with the proper cables needed to connect to your Xbox console.
