Not a fan of the white Xbox One S? It'll soon be available in Storm Grey and Military Green

Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One S, its latest console, at E3 back in June, and it officially went on sale last month, priced at $399 with 2TB of storage. Since then, more affordable variants with 1TB ($349) and 500GB ($299) have been unveiled too - but the console has only been made available so far in white.

But if you're not a fan of the white option, you might be interested in Microsoft's latest announcement - especially if you've been looking forward to the upcoming launch of Battlefield 1.

Microsoft unveiled a new bundle today, priced at $299, which includes a full game download of Battlefield 1 Standard Edition, one month of EA Access, along with a 500GB Xbox One S in white. It will launch in Europe on October 13; and in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on October 21.

But here's where it gets a bit more interesting. The same bundle will also be offered in this striking Storm Grey option, including a matching controller...

...but there's some bad news on that front: the Storm Grey bundle will only be available in the US, exclusively via Microsoft Stores and Walmart. The good news (if you're in the US, at least) is that it will cost the same as the white bundle when it's released there on November 1.

But another option will be more widely available than just the United States, promising "the ultimate experience" for Battlefield fans.

The Special Edition Bundle includes a full-game download of Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition, along with "the Hellfighter Pack, Red Baron Pack, Lawrence of Arabia Pack, a new visual appearance of the Behemoths, five Battlepacks", one month of EA Access, and the Xbox One S with 1TB of storage in this appropriately named 'military green' color scheme:

That bundle will cost $349, with availability in Europe from October 1, and the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand from October 18. You can get a further overview of the Battlefield 1 Special Edition Bundle in the video below:

The new bundles are available to pre-order now via the Microsoft Store - and of course, bear in mind that prices will vary between markets.
