In anticipation of Project Scorpio's release this holiday season and the Xbox Game Pass later this spring, Microsoft has unveiled the details of its latest wireless controller.

The Recon Tech Special Edition controller retains many of the core features of the Xbox One's wireless controllers, such as customized button-mapping and Bluetooth connectivity with Windows 10 and Samsung Gear VR. It also increases the controller's wireless range and introduces a new design with laser-etching and rubberized grips on the back.

Launching on April 25 for $69.99, the Recon Tech Special Edition can be pre-ordered here.

Microsoft is rolling out a lot of new hardware this year, as well as software improvements like the upcoming Creators Update. This is only going to continue to grow fan enthusiasm as the company forges ahead toward Scorpio.
