Microsoft unveiled new Shadow and Camo customization options for the Xbox One controller through its Xbox Design Lab service.

If you’re sick of your PC gaming friends bragging about their RBG keyboards, just know that Microsoft is trying to help. Today the company announced two new design options for Xbox Design Lab, a service that allows players to customize their Xbox One controllers to their heart’s content.

The two new designs the company announced are called Shadow and Camo. The Shadow design allows players (or in this case, amateur designers) the opportunity to create a gradient from whichever colors they select. Similarly, the Camo design is your standard, run-of-the-mill camouflage design that you can find just about anywhere nowadays.

These new designs look to flesh out Microsoft’s Xbox Design Lab, an already impressive initiative aimed at granting gamers the ability to personalize their controllers. Initially launched back in summer 2016, the Xbox Design Lab also allows players to customize their controllers’ colors, controller finish, and engrave their controller with a custom message. Of course, as we’re not all artistically gifted, the Xbox Design Lab website allows players the ability to customize a controller using a preset color scheme and design.

You can check out Microsoft’s new video detailing both designs below. Both new designs are currently available on the Xbox Design Lab website.
