Star Wars Squadrons Xbox Controller Announced

Specialty controller manufacturer Controller Gear, makers of the limited edition Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Purge Trooper Xbox Controller, are at it again! They recently unveiled their latest limited edition Xbox controller and charging stand combo. This new Star Wars Squadrons Xbox Controller features Vanguard Squadron, the Rebel Alliance/New Republic squadron you join during the game’s story mode.

Unfortunately for Playstation users, this controller/charger combo is limited to Xbox only. It will be produced in extremely limited quantities, and is expected to sell out like the Purge Trooper edition before it. Apart from the custom artwork on both the controller and charging stand, it is a standard Xbox controller. It will be usable on both the current Xbox One family of systems as well as the newly announced Series X/S and Windows 10 PCs. It will be released in early October.

What is slightly disappointing is the $170 price tag. The Purge Trooper controller was only $140 for what appears to be the same feature set. This could be due to the significant increases electronic parts have seen since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic as the price is consistent with Controller Gear’s other upcoming Xbox controller sets.

Pre-orders are available, but only on the Controller Gear website.
