Special Edition White Xbox One Elite Controller - Pre Order, Release Date, Features, Price - Everything we Know

Here's everything you need about Xbox Washburn, including the Washburn release date, pre-order price, and features.

While we've been through quite literally months of rumours, speculation and anticipation, Microsoft has finally unveiled its new Elite Controller - a Special Edition White version of the existing Elite Controller.

Originally codenamed Washburn, the White Xbox One Elite Controller is set for release this October, costing $149. Unfortunately, it seems like there will be no added features (such as Bluetooth connectivity) from the original Elite Controller. Here's all the information we've gathered so far.

The original Elite Controller released in 2015 to significant success, despite the high price point. Designed to fill a void in the luxury gaming peripheral side of things, the controller was a premium li that featured a set of customisable thumbsticks, a swappable D-pad, four mappable paddles on the back of the controller, trigger locks on both RT and LT and the ability to completely re-map every button via some Xbox and PC software.

The new version of the Elite Controller is set to feature three-stage trigger locks, thumbstick tension control settings, and Bluetooth functionality - a feature sorely missing from the original Elite Controller. There's also a matching charging dock releasing alongside the new Elite Controller. The new Elite Controller is set for release on October 16th 2018, costing $149.

The Elite Controller V2 release comes off the back of a string of new Xbox One Wireless Controller designs announced by Microsoft, including a PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Limited Edition controller, the Phantom Black Special Edition controller, the Grey/Blue controller, as well as some new options for the company's Design Lab initiative.

If you can't stop yourself at just a new controller, Microsoft also announced a 'Robot White' edition of the Xbox One X, which comes complete with a copy of Fallout 76 (and Fallout 76 BETA access), available exclusively at GameStop for $499.99.
