While Microsoft’s new tool allows creative gamers to customize their own Xbox One controller, it doesn’t mean the company is out of the custom accessories game just yet: the company just announced a special edition Gears of War 4 Xbox Wireless Controller that proves just that.
The new controller was designed by Microsoft in collaboration with Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition and features some design elements inspired by the game, including laser-etched claw marks and a battle-worn texture that looks like it’s covered in blood.
The Gears of War 4 Xbox One controller also comes with a handful of replaceable components, like Hair Trigger Locks, a variety of game themed thumbsticks, d-pads and paddles. Additionally, special software will allow you to adjust trigger sensitivity, button mapping, and other options for the best possible gaming experience.
Microsoft will start shipping this piece of Gear of War 4 swag on October 4 for $199, which is a steep price to pay for regular gamers. Luckily, it’s aimed at collectors and hardcore fans of the franchise.
It will be compatible with Xbox One and the upcoming Xbox One S, but since Microsoft plans to expand the list of devices compatible with Xbox Controllers, players on Windows 10 PCs and Windows 10 Mobile will probably be able to use it, as well.
