Microsoft has lifted the lid on the new Tech Series of Xbox One Wireless Controllers, starting with the Recon Tech Special Edition controller in late April.

The other Tech Series controllers have yet to be announced, but, like the Recon Tech pad, Microsoft says they will "explore concepts stemming from combat armor and sci-fi mechanical gear".

The controller will be available in Australia May 8 for a steep $99.95, still half the cost of an Elite wireless controller.

What do you think about Microsoft's "Tech" range of controllers?

The Xbox One controller has went through a few iterations over the last several years. Fans will be delighted by premium finishes like a laser etched texture on the front, gold accents and insignia, and our fan favorite diamond rubberized grips on the back.

The controller will be compatible with the upcoming Copilot feature on Xbox One, allowing gamers to use two Xbox wireless controllers as one. Custom button mapping is also available through the Xbox Accessories App.

The first in the series is called the Xbox Wireless Controller - Recon Tech Special Edition. This new console feature will be ideal for parents who want to help their kids play, experienced gamers looking to play with novice players, or gamers who need unique configurations to play.
