The purple controller works with all Xbox One devices and comes with all the usual features you’d expect from an Xbox controller, such as Bluetooth connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack, compatibility with Windows 10 devices, and a button-mapping function via Microsoft’s Xbox Accessory App.

As a bonus to Fortnite players, ordering the special edition controller will also grant you in-game content, including a Legendary Dark Vertex character outfit and 500 V-Bucks for the digital store.

For the gamers out there interested, the Fortnite Special Edition Xbox Controller will be available starting September 26, retailing for $65 USD over at retailers such as Microsoft’s online store, Amazon, Walmart, or Best Buy.

UPDATE (June 3, 2019): Microsoft has confirmed their purple Fortnite-inspired Xbox One S, it’s bundled content, as well as its release date of June 7 for $299 USD. The console alongside the bundle will be offered for $50 USD during launch as part of E3’s celebration.
