The second is titled the Volcano Shadow Special Edition, and will be a matte black on the top, but it then transitions into a bright red-orange color towards the bottom, while the buttons will also feature the same orange color. This one will be available for $69.99 and will also hit stores on August 3rd, 2017.

The final controller is titled the Patrol Tech Special Edition, and features a dark blue color, with airborne naval patrol patterns found on the controller’s grips. The Patrol Tech Special Edition will cost $69.99, however unlike the other controllers, you’ll have to wait until September 5th, 2017 if you want to get your hands on it.

Additionally, a new wireless adapter for Xbox controllers was also announced. It will be 66% smaller than the previous adapter, which will allow it to better fit next to other USB devices. The adapter is set to retail for $24.99, however, players who also want a controller and want to save a bit of money will be able to purchase a controller and adapter bundle for $69.99.
