Gears of War 4 is getting a ridiculously awesome Xbox Elite controller

8

Gears of War is back, and the best way to celebrate is with an incredibly ornate custom controller. To celebrate the impending launch of Gears of War 4, Microsoft is releasing a special edition of the Xbox Elite Controller, one that’s absolutely packed with details for fans of the series. In addition to the gritty color scheme — which includes the new Gears logo on the back and what appears to be a splash of blood on the front — there are some great little touches. My personal favorite is the d-pad cover. In the game you use the d-pad to select your weapon, and the plate now has tiny pictures of Gears weaponry so that you never forget its purpose. The controller also comes with a carrying case complete with a chainsaw assault rifle on the front.

The Gears of War 4 Elite controller is available to pre-order now.
