Microsoft to launch Shock Blue Xbox Wireless Controller on November 10

Beginning October 14th, Microsoft will temporarily shut down its Xbox Design Lab until 2021

Microsoft has revealed some of the accessories it plans to launch on November 10th alongside the Xbox Series X and Series S.

Xbox has already unveiled the ‘Carbon Black’ wireless controller for the Series X and the ‘Robot White’ for the Series S, but now the company has shown off three additional controller styles.

First, there’s the ‘Shock Blue’ wireless controller with a blue top case accented by a black D-pad and shoulder buttons and ‘A,’ ‘B,’ ‘X,’ and ‘Y’ buttons that are softened by a white back casing.

Microsoft has also updated its PC controller bundles. There’s now a Carbon Black Xbox Wireless Controller and Wireless Adapter for Windows 10, as well as a bundle with a controller and USB-C cable bundle. You’ll also be able to connect these controllers to a PC with Bluetooth.

Xbox is introducing a rechargeable battery with a USB-C cable and takes under four hours to charge completely.

The controllers will be available beginning November 10th in nearly all markets. It also seems like Microsoft will be keeping the current price for these gamepads $74.99 CAD. The rechargeable battery with USB-C cable is also available for $29.99.

You’ll be able to pre-order these controllers starting 11am ET in the U.S. and Canada.

Beginning October 14th, Microsoft will be temporarily shutting down its. Xbox Design Lab, with the platform returning in 2021. If you’re planning to personalize an Xbox controller for a holiday gift, the tech giant says you should place your order by October 13th.
