Microsoft has announced the release of an Xbox One S Minecraft bundle in US and Canada, allowing Microsoft gamers that want an Xbox One S to not only get a cheaper console than the original Xbox One, but also to get one of the Xbox One’s most popular games along with it.

The Xbox One edition of Minecraft has become one of the most popular games on the console after it was announced to have been ported over to the Xbox 360 back in 2012. The constantly-evolving game, coupled with a number of various texture packs that give you everything from Skyrim to Mass Effect to Halo, has remained fairly popular, to the point where a retail release of the game and some of its best DLC came out several months ago.

The Xbox One S Minecraft bundle will also come with some of the game’s DLC: the Favorites Pack, and the Builder’s Pack. The Favorites Pack includes the Festive Mash-up Pack, the Halo Mash-up Pack, the Fantasy Texture Pack, the Natural Texture Pack, the City Texture Pack, and the Battle and Beasts Skin Pack and its sequel. The Builder’s Pack includes the Biome Settlers Skin Pack, the Cartoon Texture Pack, the Candy Texture Pack, the Plastic Texture Pack, and the Greek Mythology Mash-Up pack.

All of these texture packs not only give you a whole new world to explore with new textures, but also give you a lot of new ways to build cool things.

The Xbox One S Minecraft bundle will include a digital copy of Minecraft with all of these DLC packs, along with a 500 GB Xbox One S, a white Xbox One controller, access to the Microsoft Windows 10 Edition Beta, and a 14-day free trial for Xbox Live Gold, which will allow you to play online and can even get you anywhere from two to four free games a month.
