Xbox One’s new Elite controller has been revealed to release on October 27. While this has not been officially confirmed by Microsoft, many retail stores, including Microsoft’s own store, have posted October 27th as the release date.

The Xbox One Elite controller, which also works on the PC, features new features unavailable on the standard unit. The Elite controller includes: interchangeable rear paddles, hair trigger locks, as well as in-depth customizability.  To get these new features, though, gamers will have to pay a premium price. The cost will come at over twice the price of the standard unit $150.

It is not a surprise that this Elite controller seems to be scheduled to release on the same day that Halo 5: Guardians releases. This type of controller is built to help give small advantages to those hardcore players in multiplayer games.

The full list of everything that comes in the package include:

  • Xbox Elite Wireless Controller
  • Carrying case
  • Set of 4 paddles
  • Set of 6 thumbsticks: standard (2), tall (2), and domed (2)
  • Set of 2 D-pads: faceted and standard
  • USB cable
  • AA batteries
  • Quick Setup Guide and Product Manual
