If you thought the new Battlefield 1 custom Xbox One S consoles were the end of the Xbox hardware-related news today then you might be surprised to find out Xbox has just revealed even more new accessories. Here’s the full press release:
At Xbox, we’re committed to providing choice to our fans so you can play where you want to play, with the hardware you want to play on. We recently brought you the Xbox One S Console – the ultimate gaming device and 4K entertainment system with 4K UHD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and HDR gaming. This holiday, we’re adding new accessories to our lineup, giving you more options in how to play Xbox One S’s over 100 consoles exclusives. Check out our new controller designs, Special Edition headset, and updated controller bundles below.
New Xbox Wireless Controller designs
There are two new controller designs coming this fall. First, we have the Xbox Wireless Controller Dawn Shadow Special Edition that comes in a metallic magenta that fades into a matte black finish. Secondly, we have an Xbox Wireless Controller in blue — a fan-favorite color from Xbox Design Lab. Similar to the controller we launched alongside Xbox One S, these new controllers have the new streamlined design, textured grip for enhanced comfort, and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 PCs, laptops and tablets*. The new Dawn Shadow controller will be available in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and other Xbox regions October 4 for $69.99 USD.

New Xbox Wireless Controller coming in black
