Inspired by “the energy and vibrance often found in athletic apparel and sneaker design,” the Electric Volt controller pairs a neon yellow front plate with a white back and black D-Pad detailing. The DayStrike Camo Special Edition controller pairs red with grey and black and features a special textured grip on its bumpers.
The Electric Camo controller will launch on April 27 and retail at $64.99 and the Daystrike Camo controller will launch on May 4 and retail at $69.99. In some markets, they will also arrive alongside a 14-day trial of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Microsoft is also launching a merch range inspired by these two controllers and will be using “post-consumer recycled resins” in an effort to make production more sustainable.
