If you haven’t upgraded to the Xbox One S yet, there’s a new bundle coming this month that should entice you to make the switch. Microsoft announced a new PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bundle this week, pairing one of the most popular games in decades with one of the most powerful consoles ever made. It’s a great time to switch to console gaming, with GPU and DDR4 RAM prices going through the roof because of mining, consistently good console bundles are winning over would-be PC gamers.

Commonly refereed to as PUBG, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds recently hit 4 million players across the Xbox One family of devices. Matt Lapsen, General Manager, Xbox Devices Marketing stated this week, “We’ve been blown away by the response to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One and today, we’re excited to announce the Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bundle, offering fans the best value in games and entertainment with the hottest game on the planet.”

Fans won’t have to wait that long to get their hands on the new bundle, which is set to launch on February 20, 2018. If you do pick-up the Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bundle you will get an Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, an Xbox Wireless Controller, built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, support for 4K video streaming, premium audio with Dolby Atmos and access to a games library of over 1,300 games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Cuphead. You will also get a full-game download of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which allows you to play solo, or team up with friends. The bundle also comes with 1-month Xbox Live Gold trial, and 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds drops players on a realistic 8 x 8 km island with visuals that showcase Unreal Engine 4’s capabilities. Starting with nothing, gamers must fight to locate weapons, vehicles and supplies as they strive to be the lone survivor.

The Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bundle will be available for $299.99 at participating retailers worldwide and is available for pre-order today. You can already pre-order the $299 bundle on sites like Amazon.com.
