Microsoft also announced a new line of gear, including Xbox shirts and hoodies
Microsoft has unveiled two brand new Xbox controllers.
According to a post on the Major Nelson Blog, the Electric Volt wireless controller is the latest color in the Xbox controller lineup. It features a striking yellow and white color scheme with black accents.
It’ll be available April 27 for the standard Xbox wireless controller price of $64.99. The second of the two controllers, the Daystrike Camo Special Edition wireless controller, not only looks awesome, but it includes new features.
The third installment in Xbox’s camo series, the Daystrike Camo is the first in the newest generation of Xbox controllers. It features a red, black an gray color palette to bring a “streetwear vibe to your game,” the blog post by director of product marketing for Xbox Navin Kumar said.
But that’s not what makes this new controller exciting. According to Nelson’s blog, the Daystrike Camo Special Edition wireless controller features textured grip across the top of the bumpers for the first time on an Xbox controller.
It’ll be available on May 4 for a premium price of $69.99.
Kumar added that the new controllers will help Microsoft become more sustainable as they both incorporate post-consumer recycled resins. Both controllers are compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S as well as Windows 10 PCs, mobile devices and Bluetooth Low Energy for remote play.
Those who purchase the controllers will receive a 14-day trial of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in “select markets,” the blog post said.
In addition, Microsoft is launching a line of new gear called the Xbox Icon Collection, which will include apparel inspired by the new controllers in the form of sweatshirts, hoodies, T-shirts and more.
