Two new Xbox One S bundles for FIFA fans in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the U.S. were announced Tuesday at gamescom 2016 in Germany, as was a great list of Xbox One games coming to Windows 10, including “ReCore,” “Forza Horizon 3,” “We Happy Few,” “Gears of War 4” and “Halo Wars 2.”
With the Xbox One S FIFA 17 Bundle – available with a 500GB or 1TB hard drive – EA Sports delivers the next installment of the biggest-selling sporting franchise in the world with exclusive content in FIFA Ultimate Team for Xbox fans. EA Access members will also get to play “FIFA 17” first exclusively on Xbox One beginning on Sept. 22, five days before it launches.
Also announced was the expansion of Xbox Game Preview to Windows 10, with “Everspace” by Rockfish Games as one of the first titles available later this year.
“This program gives gamers the chance to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, participate in the development process and help developers make Windows 10 games the best they can be,” writes Aaron Greenberg, Xbox general manager of games marketing, who was at the largest consumer gaming event in Europe.
On the independent games front, gamescom 2016 marks the third anniversary of the announcement of the ID@Xbox program. “Since its inception, the ID@Xbox team has worked with developers to launch more than 300 titles, many of which have brought innovations helping advance the future of our industry,” Greenberg says. Xbox is now working with more than 1,000 developers in over 60 countries “who are continuing to bring their visions to life on Xbox across both Xbox One and Windows 10,” Greenberg says.
