Football fans who are holding off their Xbox One purchase are in luck as Microsoft and EA Sports have teamed up to offer the FIFA 16 Xbox One bundle. The bundle is available for pre-orders for €369 / £319 with its price varying from region-to-region. Customers interested in the bundle will be able to get their hands on it from September 15th with 1TB or 500 GB storage (region dependent). Alongside the Xbox One console, the bundle ships with a wireless Xbox controller, a downloadable copy of FIFA 16 and three Xbox-exclusive FIFA Ultimate Team Loan Legends. The details of the bundle are stated in a Microsoft blog post.
It doesn’t end there, the 500GB version of the bundle comes with one-month free subscription of EA Access while the 1TB bundle gives you a free one-year EA Access subscription. For those of you who are unaware of EA Access, it gives you access to a handful of EA games at monthly subscription fee of $4.99 or $29.99 a year, as well as a 10 percent discount on digital purchases and a chance to play upcoming titles from EA ahead of their official availability.
Coming over to the best part: customers who will purchase the bundle will get a chance to play FIFA 16 from September 17th, five days ahead of the official availability of the game, which is set to take place on September 22nd. And, this is all because of the EA Access subscription which comes bundled with the console.Further reading: Fifa 16, Gaming, Microsoft, Xbox One
