The Xbox One is already host to a wide array of colorful and unique controller styles and variations, with the console getting two brand new color schemes for those looking for a bit of color to add to their controller lineup.

In an update on Xbox Wire, two new controller color options have been revealed for Xbox One console owners (or those playing on PC), with the newest colors being Ocean Shadow and Winter Forces. Ocean Shadow offers a sleek mix of black and dark metallic blue on a matte finish, while Winter Forces uses an arctic camo theme of white and grey. Descriptions from Microsoft for both controllers can be found below:

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 $69.99 USD at select retailers worldwide starting February 7.

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 $69.99 USD at select retailers worldwide starting February 7.

Both new controllers will be available online and in stores on February 7th, 2017 for $69.99, with the controllers pairing perfectly with Xbox One consoles or Windows PCs. Both controllers will utilize the updated features on more recent versions of the controller, including textured grips, improved wireless range, Bluetooth compatibility, and more.

The Ocean Shadow and Winter Forces Xbox One controllers will be available starting on February 7th, 2017 – for a closer look at the new color schemes, you can check out the photos below:
