Microsoft Celebrates E3’s End with New Promo; Get a Free Game with New Xbox One Next Week

E3 2015 has come to a close, and even though the excitement for many of the biggest games revealed during the show won’t be arriving until next year, Microsoft is offering a tantalizing new offer if E3 gave you the itch to buy a new console.

Microsoft has announced today that a new promo offer will be available starting this Sunday, June 21st and running through Saturday, June 27th, allowing players to obtain a free game of their choosing with the purchase of any new Xbox One console. The offer applies to both the 500GB and the recently-revealed 1TB model, with the promo available to retailers in the US.

Timed alongside some of the big games that released this summer such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, the deal also happens to come alongside this week’s upcoming release of Batman: Arkham Knight on Tuesday, June 23rd, making a convenient case if you are looking forward to both Batman and a new Xbox One console.

The deal from Microsoft allows users to pick one free retail game for Xbox One (valued up to $59.99) at participating retailers with the purchase of a new Xbox One console. The offer only applies to new, disc-based titles and does not apply to a digital copy, and is not available for either pre-ordered titles or used games.

Microsoft’s Xbox One promotion for a free game with new consoles will run from June 21st through June 27th, 2015.
