Expand Your Arsenal With New Xbox Wireless Controllers

Team Xbox knows choice is important, and are excited to announce two new Xbox One controller designs coming to retailers worldwide.

Both the Xbox Wireless Controller – Ocean Shadow Special Edition and Xbox Wireless Controller – Winter Forces Special Edition will pair seamlessly with any Xbox One including Xbox One S, the ultimate gaming and 4K entertainment system with 4K UHD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming, and High Dynamic Range. Read below for more details on the exciting design elements and features.

The Xbox Wireless Controller – Ocean Shadow Special Edition is the next evolution of the Shadow controller series we introduced last year. This controller features a sleek, matte black top case and sides that fade to a light blue metallic finish. The buttons, triggers and D-pad have a glossy black finish with light blue highlights on the ABXY and menu buttons. The controller will be available for £59.99 at select retailers starting February 23rd.

The Xbox Wireless Controller – Winter Forces Special Edition is the newest of our Forces series controllers and is inspired by the popularity of our previous Armed Forces, Covert Forces, and Midnight Forces controllers. It has a modern, arctic camo pattern with light and dark grey accents, giving it a striking look alongside your Xbox One S console. This new controller will also be available for £59.99 at select retailers starting February 16th.

Both controllers include all the same features that you know and love of the Xbox Wireless Controller, including textured grip, improved wireless range and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 devices or Samsung Gear VR. You can also take advantage of the custom button-mapping feature through the Xbox Accessories App, available for download from the Xbox Store or Windows Store. Plus coming this March, as part of our commitment to enhancing gaming for everyone, we’re enabling the input from two Xbox controllers to be combined by the console for a unified controller experience under one player’s profile in a feature called Co-pilot.

Both products will be available at the Microsoft Store and select retailers: GAME, Argos, Amazon for Ocean Shadow and GAME, Argos, Amazon, Dixons and Tesco for Winter Forces Special Edition.
