Birthdays are supposed to be a joyous occasion, and hence, it is no surprise that we hear of Microsoft marking the official birthday of the Xbox One with a fair number of treats, being one of the ways that Microsoft is able to say “thank you”. It seems that one of the perks is set to arrive for those who actually picked up the Xbox One console right from the get go. Yes, you read that right – early adopters of the Xbox One will be on the receiving end of a free copy of Limbo.
Here is a little bit of background information – Limbo happens to be a critically-acclaimed indie title which debuted on the Xbox 360 through the Xbox Live Arcade, and it will be making its way over to the Xbox One in the form of a free downloadable title. Only select gamers will be able to enjoy this particular “offer”, as those selected will be notified through the Xbox Live messaging system.
The congratulatory message reads, “Thanks for being an Xbox One early adopter. To celebrate Year One, we’re giving you Limbo when it’s released. Stay tuned, your free code will arrive here.” There you go – there is value to being the early bird, isn’t it?
