Tip: Buy Any Xbox One, Get a Free Copy of Madden NFL 19

Posted on August 11, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox One with 1 Comment

This week only, when you buy any Xbox One S or Xbox One X console or bundle, you will get a free digital copy of Madden NFL 19 valued at $60. And yes, the game is enhanced for Xbox One X.

Madden NFL 19 gives you game-changing control on and off the field,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle explains. “Real Player Motion transforms the way you play Madden delivering you gameplay control with precision and intent. Create and share custom draft classes, design your game strategy, progress your players, and execute your game plan with all new positional archetypes in Franchise mode. In Madden NFL 19 Ultimate Team, train your favorite players to fit your roster and lead your team to glory in all new ways to compete.”

Not a football (or Pittsburgh Steelers) fan? You can choose from Call of Duty: WWII, Far Cry 5, or State of Decay 2 instead.

Also, Microsoft is touting some Xbox One bundles and accessories.

The Xbox One X PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds bundle includes a full-game download of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds which is enhanced for Xbox One X with 4K/HDR graphics, for $500. And the Xbox One S Starter Bundle (1 TB) includes three months of Xbox Game Pass and 3 months of Xbox Live Gold for just $300. (Again, both also come with Madden NFL 19 or one of those other games for free right now.)

Microsoft is also hosting a sale on Xbox One controllers, each of which is $10 off right now from the Microsoft Store.

The Madden NFL 19 sale ends August 18 and is valid only via Microsoft retail and online stores in the United States.

    Are one of the 'Xbox One S' mentioned in first paragraph supposed to be 'Xbox One X'?
