Fallout 76 bundle delivers first white Xbox One X edition – you can pre-order today

Microsoft is finally spicing up the Xbox One X colour options by debuting a Robot White option as part of the newly-announced Fallout 76 bundle.

The bundle, which is now able to pre-order, features a handsome two-tone version of the premium Xbox One with a 1TB hard-drive. There’s also matching white controller and a digital copy of Bethesda’s latest Fallout instalment.

Pre-orders start today ahead of the November 15 on-sale date (November 16 in the US), with Microsoft promising free shipping and hassle-free returns via its own online store. The bundle is priced at £449/$499, which includes a month of access to Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.

Ahead of the release, Microsoft will start selling a special white edition of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller on October 16. That’ll cost £119/$149.

Fallout 76 is the entirely online-based prequel to the hit post-apocalyptic RPG franchise. Within the game, every surviving character emerging from ‘Vault 76’ on ‘Reclamation Day’ is played by a real human. The release represents a stark change of direction for the franchise, with gamers encouraged to co-operate on quests, build shelters and attempt to rebuild civilisation 25-years after the bombs dropped in The Great War.

It boasts a world four times the size of Fallout 4, with the US state of West Virginia split into multiple zones with varying landscapes, characters and wildlife. The game itself comes out on November 14, just before the console bundle ships, and it’ll be intriguing to see how long time fans of the franchise react to the new approach.

While the game will take place entirely online, Bethesda has confirmed players will be able to complete the narrative as a single player if they don’t wish to get involved in the community. However, this will make the experience a little more difficult and probably a lot less rewarding.
