Great news for Xbox Gamers, Microsoft has announced a new controller to its Elite range that’s aimed at being more affordable for gamers than the pro counterpart.

The good news is that it boasts some of the same features as the Xbox elite series 2 wireless controller (£142.99, Xbox.com), but there’s also a few tweaks which make it more affordable for the average user.

The elite series 2 originally launched in 2019, and the advanced controller for enthusiast players offered pro-level features not seen on the regular pad that comes bundled with every Xbox series X console.

There’s adjustable-tension thumbsticks, improved rubberised grips and precision-machined parts, making it one of our top picks for PC controllers.

If you want to upgrade the series 2 core’s offering, you can opt to purchase a “complete component pack” (£54.99, Xbox.com) separately, which comes with the following extras:

  • 1 interchangeable D-pad (standard)
  • 4 interchangeable thumbsticks (2 classic, 1 tall, 1 dome)
  • 4 paddles (2 medium, 2 mini)
  • 1 carry case
  • 1 charge dock
  • 1 USB-C cable

Pre-orders for the elite series 2 core are available now and shipping is expected to begin from 21 September 2022.
