Beginning on Sunday June 21st, gamers who purchase an Xbox One will receive another game for free, according to Xbox’s Major Nelson. This offer, which will run through June 27th, is valid on both the 500GB models of the Xbox One and the new 1TB models of the Xbox One. This also includes the bundles that come with games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection or the one that arrives with both Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Black Flag. We don’t currently know what retailers will participate in this deal, but it is probably safe to assume that places like Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Gamestop will be involved.
As to what your free game can be, it’s seemingly totally up to you. Major Nelson revealed it can be literally any new Xbox One title that’s MSRP does not exceed $59.99 (the standard price for a new game). So, gamers who want the brand new Batman: Arkham Knight and an Xbox One are in luck as those are both apart of the promotion. As the image above shows, it can also include games like Forza Horizon 2, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Dragon Age: Inquisition, or the phenomenal Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Microsoft ran a similar promotion to this last year around the launch of Destiny, seemingly to combat the PlayStation 4 Destiny bundle. It should be noted that the PS4 has a Batman: Arkham Knight bundle starting next week as well.
