The other day, we posted a story discussing Microsoft's plans for Black Friday next week, in which the publisher is expected to slash a number of prices on digital games, as well as offering deals on its Xbox One S hardware and other accessories.

Part of those deals listed the Xbox One S 500GB model dropping in price to $189. A fabulous deal, to be sure, as it usually sells around the $249 range. But today, Microsoft revealed the first of its Black Friday deals in a new flyer, and that system bundle is even better than you might have expected.

The package deal includes the system for $189, but also comes with a one month subscription to Xbox's Game Pass subscription service, as well as a free game from Ubisoft. There only appear to be a few select titles available, so you can't go nuts and yell, "Gimme Assassin's Creed Origins!", because it's not happening. But there are some great titles to choose from, including Tom Clancy's The Division, Steep, Watch Dogs 2: Gold Edition, Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, Just Dance 2018 and Hasbro Family Fun Pack. So you will get some money's worth out of this bundle when it goes on sale starting November 23rd.

That isn't all. Microsoft is also offering a number of bundle deals where one or two free games are offered from a select bunch, and this does include Assassin's Creed Origins, as well as Call of Duty: WWII, Forza Motorsport 7 and Star Wars: Battlefront II, amongst others. The bundles, which will be available starting on the 23rd as well, can be found here, and there are various available, going for $249 apiece. These include the Minecraft Complete Adventure 500GB bundle (which already has two games included with it), the Madden NFL 18 bundle, and the Ultimate Halo Bundle, amongst others. So you really get some value for just a few bucks more.

Other deals shown off in the flyer include Call of Duty: WWII for $49.99; Forza Motorsport 7 for $39.99; 50 percent off select titles like Madden NFL 18 and Assassin's Creed Origins; and a number of deals on controllers and systems, including that fancy looking Xbox One S Minecraft system. And that includes two free games as well.

As we mentioned, these deals will kick off starting November 23rd, although several digital Xbox One and Xbox 360 games will be on sale before then, starting November 17th. We'll provide a full list as soon as we get it. Happy shopping!
