Microsoft’s much-rumoured Titanfall Xbox One bundle has been confirmed, and is set for US release on March 11.
It follows Microsoft’s confirmation that Xbox One will receive an official price-cut in the UK only, starting February 28. Hit the link for all the details.
UPDATE: In a press release, Microsoft’s chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi confirmed the £399.99 / $499.99 Titanfall console bundle. It’ll hit the UK on February 28, with a download code for Titanfall while stocks last. It’ll hit the States on March 11.
It includes a standard black Xbox One console and pad, one month of Xbox Live Gold, an Xbox One headset and a Titanfall download code.
In a statement, Mehdi said, “In many ways, the launch of Titanfall will enable us to deliver the first truly next generation multiplayer game — one that will take advantage of the new party and chat improvements we’re delivering, build on the power of the cloud in a way only Microsoft can, and connect fans on Xbox Live.
“If you’ve been waiting for the biggest game of the generation before purchasing your Xbox One, this special, limited time offer is perfect for you.
At the time, the site stated that the Titanfall Xbox One bundle includes a download code for Respawn’s shooter, a stanard Xbox One console and controller, a Kinect sensor, a standard Xbox One chat headset and a one month Xbox Live subscription.
After the article was pulled, the site explained, “We were given information that apparently was under embargo, though that embargo date was not communicated until after we’d posted the news.”
The site added that Microsoft will officially unveil the bundle on this page tomorrow, but as you’ll see, the link is currently blank. We’ll have more once it’s official.
Are you tempted?
Titanfall is out March 11 Stateside, then March 14 in Europe.
