And it really is your choice: Whether you want to lock-and-load with your friends in Destiny  or Titanfall, face the legions of hell in Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, hack the planet in Watch Dogs, or hit the sports arena of your choice in Madden NFL 15 or NHL 15.

This offer is valid for any retail Xbox One game, and the offer is good for our Xbox One system bundles, too – so if you want to pick up the Xbox One Madden NFL 15 Bundle or Forza Motorsport 5 Bundle, you’re getting another free game of your choice priced at $59.99 or lower on top of the bundled game.

Free game must be a new, disc-based game for Xbox One, maximum retail value $59.99. Not valid for pre-order games. Limit one free game per eligible Xbox One purchase. Cannot be combined with other offers. Refurbished consoles or used games not included. See your local retailer for details.

Take a Look Inside our Pre-PAX ID@Xbox Open House

As Xbox is headquartered in the Seattle area, PAX Prime is a special event for us. This year, we were thrilled to invite the Xbox faithful over to our house to play some games. Hundreds of you took us up on the offer; take a look:

At the event, we showcased 29 new and upcoming ID@Xbox titles, including Volgarr the Viking, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, and the just-released Warframe. Couch co-op and competitive multiplayer was on full display, with titles like #IDARB, Chariot, Knight Squad, and SlashDash drawing crowds (and lots of shouting).

So we’d like to offer a sincere thank you to those who made the trip out to Redmond, including those who braved a rush hour ride on the Sunset Overdrive bus. Your enthusiasm and sheer numbers are strong encouragement for us to go big next year as well.

And, of course, we’ll keep all of you updated on when these games hit the Xbox Games Store.
