The holidays are kicking into high gear for fans interested in Xbox One and today we’re excited to share another great option to purchase Xbox One at an incredible value. In partnership with Ubisoft, we’re thrilled to offer two new exclusive Xbox One bundles, featuring what is shaping up to be the biggest, most intense Assassin’s Creed game to date: Assassin’s Creed Unity. Available worldwide* at select retailers on Sunday, November 2***, both the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle ($399 USD ERP) and Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle with Kinect ($499 USD ERP) also include the critically acclaimed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
These two blockbuster titles in one package enable fans to dive into the Caribbean and the Golden Age of Pirates before stepping into the life of Arno, an entirely new breed of Assassin in an epic campaign set at the height of the French Revolution – all on Xbox One.
“This holiday we’re focused on offering fans the best games, with unprecedented choice and value,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president, Microsoft. “We’ve lined up an incredible set of bundles to support the launch of some of the most anticipated game launches of the year, including Assassin’s Creed Unity, Sunset Overdrive, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Combined with our award-winning games line-up this holiday, it’s an incredible time to play on Xbox One. Over the next two months, we look forward to celebrating with fans every week as we launch new games, new bundles, and a few surprises for Xbox One.”
The Assassin’s Creed franchise has sold more than 77 million copies over its lifetime, and is one of the top-selling Xbox franchises. Built on a foundation of critically acclaimed titles, it has established a loyal following of players that are huge fans of the storyline and history, which has spurred projects beyond gaming like short films, comic books, animated series, novels, fashion and art.
Encased in special edition Assassin’s Creed Unity packaging, the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle will include a standard Xbox One console, wireless controller and chat headset, one month Xbox Live Gold membership and a digital download code for the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed Unity**, which will be available for pre-download and ready to play on November 11. For fans looking to experience everything Kinect has to offer, the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle with Kinect will also include a standard Xbox One Kinect sensor and a copy of Dance Central Spotlight.
Fans that purchase either of the Assassin’s Creed bundles will also be able to explore the Caribbean at the dawn of the 18th Century and enjoy the Golden Age of Pirates with a bonus copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on Xbox One.
Whether you’re the biggest Assassin’s Creed fanatic or have some catching up to do with the Assassin’s Creed franchise, this bundle is a great way for Assassin’s Creed fans to pick up Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Unity in one bundle, leaping forward to next gen for an amazing value price. There has never been a better time to be an Xbox One owner, or fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
This holiday, Xbox offers the best place to play, with the best games, a variety of choices and best deals for fans. In addition to the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundles, we have several other bundle options available featuring critically acclaimed games like Sunset Overdrive and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at great prices. Beyond that, we’re bringing the best line-up of games to our fans this holiday with titles like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Dance Central Spotlight, FIFA 15, Forza Horizon 2, Killer Instinct, Ori and the Blind Forest and Project Spark. We’re excited to deliver exceptional value and choice for our fans in an effort to help make Xbox One the best place to play this holiday.
