  • You get an Xbox Game Pass trial for a month to explore more than 100 Xbox One games to try on three generations of consoles. Xbox Game Pass membership will also let you play games like State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 from Microsoft Studios at the very date of worldwide release.

However, the one thing that you should take note about the whole package is that unlike most special edition consoles, you are not getting any special controller for the Sea of Thieves Xbox One S Bundle. Because, the entirety of the deal is for no special edition and just a basic console put together with an exclusive game. If you want that gorgeous translucent purple colored Sea of Thieves Special Edition Xbox Wireless Controller, you have to spend an extra $74.99 bucks to it separately.

Getting a deal for an Xbox One S Bundle that comes with an exclusive game as Sea of Thieves for against $299.99 only is a relatively fine offer. The biggest upside of the offer is the discount you are getting with this purchase. You can also get the Sea of Thieves Special Edition Game Drive for Xbox from Seagate to increase the storage capacity of your console.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass Announced

Aside from trying to give PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds a run for their money, Epic Games have launched Fortnite Battle Royale Season 3 and the new Battle Pass.

Season 3 Battle Pass will be available for only 950 V-Bucks and stuffs like emotes, gliders and outfits are just waiting for you to collect.

A trailer from Epic Games for Battle Pass Season 3 of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is recently released highlighting key-aspects of it.




The v.3.0.0 update of Fortnite lets you play the game in 60 FPS mode for all major consoles and with that, PC gamers are not the only privileged group to enjoy those higher frame-rates. Now, those Victory Royales can be celebrated in clearer resolution served in absolute smoothness. You can just snap between this 60 FPS mode and your regular 30 FPS graphics at any time during the game. Epic Games is still working on it to improve this tweak for players.

One of the key-thing you do for survival in Battle Royale mode is to build and we need not to discuss it why! Building is no longer boring and tiresome task anymore. Now the system has been improved so that you can keep building by just holding a button. Also, you can just continue your build through a tree on the way or almost anything and that is how life is easier than before.

The main co-op sandbox survival game mode "Save the World" gets a new Hoverboard for your transport. Now you can navigate through the map surfing without using any stamina and complete your quest objectives faster than ever. The only downside of it is that that you will need three seconds to summon the board and if you take any damage as you surf, you will just get knocked off. Update v.3.0.0 also brings new Heroes and weapons with Lunar New Year series of quests.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass adds tiers and that makes a total of 100! According to Epic Games, you can unlock everything there is in the same amount of time that you needed to complete the Season 2 Battle Pass, which is a rough estimate of 75-150 hours. Purchasing tiers using V-Bucks will unlock them fast though. There is a Celebration Pack containing a glider and new outfit for Fortnite Battle Royale on PlayStation Store that PlayStation Plus members can get for FREE!

Now, you know that you are getting a brand-new Xbox One S console and a copy of PUBG along with the package of course. Other aspects that are included in this bundle are what we are discussing down below.

  • The Xbox One S bundle will come with a 1TB hard drive and an Xbox Wireless Controller. There is a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player built-in, which will not only support you with 4K video streaming but the Dolby Atmos premium audio quality. Plus, you are getting access on a library of more than 1,300 games including recent sensations like Cuphead and Forza Motorsport 7.

  • You can get your hands on the full-version of last-man-standing shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. You either enter the battle royale on your own or take your partner as a team of dynamic-duos or a gang of trusty game-buddies to fam squad on the opponents. Y'know, whatever lets you earn that victory feast of chicken dinner.

  • There is a 1-month trial period of Xbox Live Gold membership along with the bundle that promises you the experience of heart-pounding multiplayer gaming on Microsoft's advanced network that you always wanted.

  • Lastly, a 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial is also comes up for you to pick up 100 Xbox One games form the grand selection. You can also enjoy upcoming exclusive game titles like Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 on the same day of their worldwide release.

Since Xbox One has a crisis for good-time games to have as exclusive to their console, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a nice addition to their collection and it was quite a good decision to bundle the game with Xbox consoles. Because, PUBG is undisputedly ruling the gaming industry right now and will probably give a fighting chance to Microsoft's consoles against Sony's PlayStation 4 and other competitors.

All things considered, the Xbox One S Bundle deal that comes for $299.99 is pretty decent as we see no similar offer for Xbox One just yet. Despite the increasing amount of cheats, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds remains a massive hit on both Steam and Xbox One. Developer PUBG Corp. has been working on an anti-cheat solution for PC version and we believe that they soon will have an Xbox edition of the update.
