Special elite controller.

Following the lengthy gameplay demo of Gears of War 4 at Microsoft’s E3 conference, a new elite controller was revealed.

The controller is the first special, themed version of the elite controller to be released and it will be available alongside the game in October. A short video of the elite controller was also shown. You can see it below.

Revealed during Microsoft’s 2015 E3 conference, Gears of War 4 received a trailer and release date last year. Fans were able to catch a quick glimpse at a couple of the title’s new protagonists as they explored a pretty haunted old building.

This year was no different, with Gears of War 4 receiving a new trailer ahead of its Oct. 11 release date.

Gears of War 4 received a multiplayer beta during April, which saw nearly 1.4 million people getting to grips with the game’s online component. This figure led to the Gears 4 beta being heralded as “the best in the history of Xbox One,” and that the game would go on to be Microsoft’s “biggest game this year.”

April also saw confirmation of the game’s Ultimate Edition. Available both physically and digitally, you’ll be able to grab the game’s Season Pass, four day early access, and the Vintage Del Gear Pack.

Gears 4 takes places 25 years after the previous game, following Marcus Fenix’s son, JD Fenix and the rest of his team take on a new threat to society following the eradication of the Locust and Lambent.
