Here is the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare limited edition controller for Xbox One

Microsoft has certainly been known to throw out some hot looking, official controllers for the Xbox One, and now they're back with another. Following on from the Titanfall limited edition earlier this year is this, the brand spanking new, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare limited edition. The game might still be a week out, but the controller is available right now.

And it's a scorcher.

Alright, you don't need a new controller to play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – or any Xbox One game, for that matter. And since it costs an extra $10 or so over a standard, run of the mill, black controller, what do you actually get? Well, two things. A paint job and some in-game content.

Underneath, and much the same as the Titanfall controller, this is a regular, run-of-the-mill Xbox One controller. No fancy new hardware features, nothing to make the actual gaming experience any different. It does of course match the paintwork of the forthcoming, 1TB COD special edition console bundle.

And that's really what it's all about. If you want something that looks awesome, a change from the regular black controllers, then this is worth a look. It's got a matte gray finish across the front, while the back remains black so your Charge & Play kits won't look out of place.

The rest of the front is dressed with graphics I'd best describe as distressed looking. The gold looks like its worn away in places and even the base, gray color gives you a similar feeling. The analog sticks are now gray, the D-pad is in gold and the buttons have been given a gray look, too – with little colored arrows beneath each of them.

The gray and gold works superbly together and all-in-all it's a fantastic looking controller. Oh, and it comes with a download code for an in-game supply drop. Which we may have to give away closer to the launch of the game, so keep an eye out for that.

You're not going to gain anything from owning this controller besides having something that looks incredible. It stands out just as much as the Titanfall controller but in different ways. If you want one, grab it while you can, it's not going to be on store shelves forever. We've got links to buy in the U.S. and the UK (where it's a GAME exclusive, it seems) below, but shout out if you find a deal on it anywhere else in the world. But for now, enough talk. More pictures!

  • Is that yellow color coming off or it's like that out of the box?
  • That's what it's supposed to look like. Distressed.
  • It's like that
  • It's kinda like distressed look jeans but a controller for XB1 :)
  • Looks like a distressed metal
  • Do ps4 has anything like this? Limited edition controllers and all
  • M sure ps4 will release sumthing cool as bundle with COD AWF
  • NOPE. GET WITH XBOX KID LOL
  • It's like beats by Dr dray,they are cheap,but the logo is 50$+,I mean its the same controller only that its (made for cod) -.-
  • Well, it's a $10 premium, and Tiger Direct has it for $60.
  • Haha what kind of spelling is that? Dr. Dray? Lmao.
  • Cool story bro
  • like the grey, not the gold/silver
  • That is one ugly controller.
  • I like Titanfall's controller more, but this is awesome too. Don't give a damn about CoD, but this controller is nice.
  • Will there be a better looking one for Halo 5?
  • I got this controller and I will say the design is pretty sweet. Worth the extra $10.
  • I like the customs controllers for games. My favorite one is still Titan fall. I am waiting for a Halo one before I buy. Or if there was ever a red one (no I don't want to sticker skin my controller).
  • Unless you're the type to collect controllers, I would say it's a complete waste to pay extra for a controller that has a different paint job.
  • But it also has DLC for the game.
  • Its not extra - the controller comes with the bundle that has the 1TB console and the game for $500. $400 base price
    $50 for game
    $50 for the extra HDD space Seems reasonable to me. Would be better if the paint job wasnt ugly as sin.  
  • The controller is also sold separately
  • Sweet!
  • Man thats ugly as hell
