Microsoft has unveiled details of its new limited-edition Xbox One X bundle for the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and in the words of Keanu Reeves himself, it’s pretty “breathtaking”. Called the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Bundle, the bundle will launch sometime in June, and additional details have not yet been revealed. However, what we do know is that this will be the final Xbox One X limited edition console to ever be released and only 45,000 units will be made available in select markets.
The bundle will contain a console that features a “cybernetic design” with glowing elements, colourful panels and colour shift effects. It also features graffiti to make it more in tune with the theme and setting of the Cyberpunk 2077 video game. Speaking of the game, it will be available as a full digital download when the game releases on September 17. The bundle offers 1TB of storage and will also feature a Cyberpunk 2077 themed wireless controller. The controller is said to be inspired by the in-game character, Johnny Silverhands, who in turn is based on the actor, Keanu Reeves. Hardware-wise, the controller is pretty much the same as any other Xbox One X controller. This limited edition version of the controller will be available separately for $79.99 (approximately Rs 6,100). Microsoft also noted in its press release that it will be unveiling other “surprises that come packed with this bundle.”
Microsoft has also unveiled a bunch of other Cyberpunk 2077 themed accessories as well. This includes the Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox Pro Charging stand. The stand has been designed to aesthetically match the Cyberpunk-themed wireless controller. The stand features magnetic contact systems with a rechargeable battery, battery cover, the charging stand as well as a 6-foot long cable. This charging stand will be available for $49.99 (approximately Rs 3,800).
Players can also pick up a Cyberpunk 2077-themed expandable storage from Seagate for the console. Called the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox: Cyberpunk 2077 Special Edition, it is available in 2TB and 5TB capacities. Once plugged, the console should automatically detect the drive and guide you through the installation process. Prices for the drives are not yet revealed but should be available in June.
