Rejoice Xbox fans – or those on PC using an Xbox controller – the gamepad of your dreams had arrived. Well, that is if you like high-vibrance and Forza Horizon 5.
During the Xbox stream at a virtual gamescom 2021, a new limited edition Xbox controller was revealed to tie in with the open-world racer.
It has a transparent yellow front facia, which you can peer through to see the working innards, pink and blue face buttons, white sticks and D-pad, blue and pink stick toppers and white shoulder buttons.
The right trigger is blue, the left pink and there’s a grey rubberised section on the area you grip the pad. This area is said to be “inspired by [the] perforated style performance car steering wheels.”
The controller also comes with some in-game DLC in the form of a Forza Edition car, a cosmetic item and a victory emote. The car is a special version of a classic Ford Coupe with a controller-matching paint scheme.
As with all current Xbox controllers, it uses AA batteries, Bluetooth® and features a 3.5mm headphone jack and a dedicated share button. It works across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Android and iOS.
It’s touted as a limited edition and is available to pre-order right now. Yeh, now.
It costs $74.99/£59.99 and will launch on 9th November 2021 alongside the game.
