Gamer fans that have been anxiously awaiting to know the release date of the newest Xbox One controller, rejoice! According to Microsoft, the Xbox One Elite controller will be available starting October 27, 2015. In case that date sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The fancy controller will be dropping on the same day as Halo 5: Guardians – an appropriate coincidence for those that want to pick up both at once.

Microsoft’s newest Xbox One controller will be available for $149.99 and brings a ton of improvements that hardcore gamers will feast on. Aside from improved accuracy and comfort, the thumbsticks and buttons are swappable, new trigger locks have been added along with swappable paddles, and a new 3.5mm headset jack.
