Microsoft has a habit of launching special edition Xbox One controllers to offer more options to gamers who like splurging on these limited edition items. The company today announced the launch of a Combat Tech Special Edition wireless Xbox controller. It’s part of the Xbox Wireless Controller Tech Series that the company launched last year. It’s a line of special edition controllers that are inspired by military technology and performance patterns normally seen in combat vehicles.
The Xbox Wireless Controller – Combat Tech Special Edition has a traditional Military Green palette which is complemented by orange accents and military insignia. Much like the Recon Tech and Patrol Tech controllers before it, the Combat Tech controller has a textured laser-etched grip on the front and rubberized diamond grips on the back.
Microsoft is selling this new controller starting March 27th for $69.99. It will be available through the Microsoft Store and participating retailers across the globe. The Recon Tech Special Edition and Patrol Tech Special Edition are also available for purchase. Both cost $69.99 and are available in a dark grey and dark blue military design respectively.
In select markets, customers will get 14 day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass after they purchase the controller. All of these controllers are compatible with Xbox One consoles and feature fan favorites such as the 3.5mm headphone jack and Bluetooth support for gaming on Windows 10 PCs.
