A little extra incentive to pick up an Xbox One S this year.

Today, Microsoft unveiled a new Xbox One S bundle for $299.99 that includes a 1-month trial of Xbox Game Pass and a copy of the popular Battle Royale shooter, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The bundle is currently set to go live on February 20th.

In regards to the new bundle, Microsoft stated:

“Since its release as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has reached incredible milestones, most recently surpassing 4 million players across the Xbox One family of devices.”

The new Xbox One S deal feels vaguely reminiscent of the promo that took place in late December where Xbox One X players could snag a free copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

However, the latest bundle certainly includes a longer list of goodies including:

  • Xbox One S 1TB
  • Xbox Wireless Controller
  • Full game download of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  • 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold
  • 1-month trial of Xbox Game Pass

While we certainly wouldn’t oppose a similar bundle for the Xbox One X, the price point and the inclusion of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds certainly makes a good argument for picking up an Xbox One S if you haven’t already.
