Prior to Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was sailing the high seas on next generation consoles. As gamers prepare for the launch of the newest title, Ubisoft and Microsoft have paired up to bring a ton of Assassin’s Creed content to Xbox fans.

Launching both an Xbox One with Kinect, and one without, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be included in the bundle. They Xbox One console with the Kinect will run gamers $499 while the console without will cost $399.

Microsoft will have both Assassin’s Creed Xbox One bundles available for sale on November 2. Both bundles will include digital downloads for both games, and the code for Assassin’s Creed Unity will allow for gamers to pre-download the title, as it doesn’t release until November 11.

Should you choose to buy the more expensive console bundle, you will also receive a download code for Dance Central Spotlight.

In the press release, Microsoft was admittedly excited about the newest Assassin’s Creed experience saying, “[Unity] is shaping up to be the biggest, most intense Assassin’s Creed game to date.”

On top of the Assassin’s Creed Xbox One bundles, Microsoft has also announced Xbox One bundles featuring both Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Sunset Overdrive. Of the announced consoles, it appears only the Sunset Overdrive bundle will feature a different colored console, being white.

With the holiday season right around the corner, this is a great move for Microsoft, and should allow gamers and opportunity at a lot of content, while also upgrading to the newest system.
