Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 revealed

Refreshed hardware promises even more customization options for pro players

Posted on

At E3 2019, Microsoft has announced the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2.

Compatible with Xbox One consoles, Windows PCs, and other platforms that support the Xbox controller family, the new controller promises over 30 new and improved features. A brand-new feature that comes with the Elite Series 2 is adjustable-tension thumbsticks. You can choose between three different resistance settings, including options to match the same thumbstick resistance as Xbox 360 or standard Xbox One controllers. The new controller also comes with an additional, shorter hair trigger lock setting where the trigger pull distance is shorter than ever, helping you fire faster.

The Elite Series 2 comes with new interchangeable thumbsticks and paddle shapes. You can now save up to 3 custom profiles on the controller and instantly switch between them and a default profile with the dedicated Profile button. New LED lights on the top of the controller indicate which profile is selected.

For the first time ever, there's a built-in rechargeable battery with up to 40 hours of battery life per charge. The controller comes with a USB-C cable and charging dock, giving fans multiple options for charging your controller.

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 comes with premium components including a carrying case, set of 6 thumbsticks (2 standard, 2 classic, 1 tall, 1 wide dome), set of 4 paddles (2 medium, 2 mini), set of 2 D-pads (standard and faceted), thumbstick-adjustment tool, charging dock for in-case or out-of-case charging, and braided USB-C cable.

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 will be available in all Xbox One markets, starting with 24 markets on November 4, 2019, including Austria, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. The Elite Series 2 will retail for $179.99 USD MSRP and is available for pre-order now at most major gaming retailers including Microsoft Store.
