Xbox One S All-Digital Edition console and launch games announced

Update: During today’s Inside Xbox the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition console was announced and the below bundled launch titles were confirmed.


Three Xbox One S All-Digital launch games have been named ahead of the upcoming console’s release. The launch games will be the console edition of Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3 and will come bundled with the console included with its purchase.

Microsoft has been rumored to have a digital-only Xbox One in development for some time. As there are games stated by GamesIndustry.biz to be included with this bundle, the packaging will have an age rating equivalent to the most strictly-rated game in the package. Minecraft is rated E for Everyone/PEGI 6, but Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves are rated T for Teen and PEGI 12 by the ESRB and PEGI, respectively.

Minecraft is, of course, one of the world’s most popular video games that’s available on everything short of a smart fridge. The console-specific version of the game has some limitations as compared to the Java Edition, but it’s still a boatload of fun. Sea of Thieves is an online game that sees players taking command of their very own pirate ship and sailing the high seas in a quest for treasure and glory. Finally, Forza Horizon 3 is a racing game in the longstanding Forza franchise that can provide an exciting driving experience with high-end sports cars from around the world. All three of these Xbox One S All-Digital launch games have online components.

The Xbox One S All-Digital launch games are sure to make the overall package even more enticing than it would be on its own. The latest digitally-focused console will include a 1TB hard drive and is expected to be announced later today at a price of €229.99 or your regional equivalent, the lowest-yet launch price of a console coming from Microsoft. If the rumors prove true, you should be able to pick up one of these bad boys for yourself on May 7, 2019.
