Update: Major Nelson announced two more bundles that will become available soon. For more information on the Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War bundle and the Xbox One with Kinect bundle check out Nelson’s announcement right here.

October is just around the corner and Microsoft plans to make the best of it by offering a number of interesting Xbox One bundles at fairly reasonable prices. The selection is already pretty good and it’s about to get even better very soon as the company promises to unveil even more bundles in the days to come. Since we don’t know anything for certain about the company’s future offers, we’re just going to stick to what we know right now and update this article as soon as we learn something new.

As it happens, Major Nelson announced a new Xbox One bundle just moments ago on his blog. The new bundle includes a 500 GB Xbox One console, a wireless controller, and the LEGO movie videogame, all priced at $349. Given that this is the regular price of the console, what you’re looking at is basically a free copy of the LEGO movie videogame, which is usually priced at about $20 or so on the Xbox Store. Not exactly the best bundle for hardcore gamers, but suitable for parents who were looking to buy a new Xbox One console for their kids next month.

Gamers can also look forward to a few more bundles this October, including the Xbox One Elite Bundle retailing at $499. This is a good bang for the buck bundle as it includes a console with 1 TB  Solid State Hybrid Drive, an Xbox Elite wireless controller, a carrying case, HDMI cable, power supply, and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold Trial. If you’re interested in a bundle that’s cheaper and also includes some games you may want to look into Microsoft’s Holiday Bundle. This $400 bundle features a 1 TB Xbox One console and wireless controller, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, a full-game download for Ori and the Blind Forrest, and Rare Replay, which is a collection of 30 of the best games developed by Rare.

Old school games not your thing? Don’t worry because Microsoft is also offering bundles that contain highly anticipated titles like Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider. At $500, the Halo 5 bundle is certainly a bit pricey, however, you’d be getting your money’s worth because the bundle includes a limited edition Xbox One console complete with custom skin and sound effects, Spartan themed SteelBook, 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, as well as the upcoming game itself and a number of goodies (some in-game) designed to offer you the complete the Halo 5: Guardians experience.

For even more Xbox One bundles make sure you check out the Xbox Store at this link right here.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
