Happy 2019 CD blog readers! We're back, ready to ring in what promises to be a massive new year of games.
Kicking us off is the news that we'll be getting a special Xbox One X tie-in bundle with the launch of Metro Exodus on February 15th. Metro Exodus is the third game of the Metro series, with the first two games having been released on the last generation of consoles. Metro Redux, released in 2014, was a remastered package featuring the first two games for the Xbox One and PS4.
The first two games in the series were well received, being praised for their story, rich characters and immersive, atmospheric world. With almost six years passing since the last new entry in the Metro series, there's been excitement to see what the knowledge of the current hardware capability will enable the developers to do with the Metro Exodus.
Fittingly, Metro Exodus is getting a bundle that pairs it with the the most powerful console hardware on the market at the moment; the Xbox One X. For big fans of the series, this bundle is the ideal way to experience what the Metro team have dreamt up.
The bundle will come with the standard black Xbox One X and controller, with no alternate colours announced and apparently no bundle coming to the Xbox One S (if rumours are to be believed, this could be because Microsoft are on the verge of announcing a new discless One S model).
However, Microsoft have been setting the bar high with their recent bundles, and despite the lack of special edition console, this bundle does come with some nice extras. Its official name - the 'Metro Saga' bundle - hints that as well as including Metro Exodus, players will also get Metro Redux (which itself is two games within one package). It also comes with the standard 1 month free trials of Xbox Live (to play online) and Xbox Game Pass.
If you're having trouble identifying which PS4 model you own or you're interested in grabbing a PS4 for some retro gaming, this guide is for you. Although each PS4 model can play all PS4 games, there are subtle differences such as whether your TV is 4K compatible, how much storage you think you'll need, and whether you plan on introducing PSVR to your home set-up. Whatever your requirements, it's good to stay informed so you can lay the PS4 vs PS4 Pro vs PS4 Slim debate to rest.
Released on November 29th 2022, the Xbox Series S Gilded Hunter bundle will be a top-selling bundle for Christmas 2022. The bundle contains three hugely popular franchises, Fortnite, Rocket League and Fall Guys with added bonus content to help sweeten the deal.
