Xbox has detailed new peripherals it will be releasing alongside Series S and X consoles in November.
In addition to the already revealed ‘Carbon Black’ and ‘Robot White’ controllers, it will also release a ‘Shock Blue’ variant, it announced on Monday. The controllers will be available for the same price point as the current-gen versions ($60).
In addition, Microsoft will update its PC controller bundles to include the new Xbox Wireless Controller in Carbon Black, which will be available with a wireless adaptor or USB-C cable. These controllers can also connect to PC via Bluetooth.
Microsoft has refreshed its rechargeable battery solution and is introducing the Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable, which it says will fully charge a controller in under 4 hours before or during play.
Finally, the company announced that beginning October 14, its Xbox Design Lab controller design service will be going offline temporarily “so that we can bring you some updates,” returning in 2021.
The new peripherals will be available beginning November 10 and available to pre-order alongside the Xbox Series X and S console on Tuesday, September 22.
Xbox Series X is being positioned as the most powerful of the next-generation consoles, with Series S offering many of the same features including an SSD and ray-tracing.
