Now Playing: Xbox Elite Gears of War 4 Controller - Official E3 2016 Trailer

The standard edition Xbox One Elite controllers were, for a time, very difficult to find. Microsoft said it didn't anticipate the demand for the controllers. By its latest count, more than 1 million of the unique, transforming controllers have been made.

Announced at E3 2016, the Gears of War 4 Elite controller features Gears of War-themed thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles. It also comes with a "unique" multiplayer lobby item and three Gear Packs that players can use in the game.

The controller arrives on October 4, a week before Gears of War 4 comes out on October 11.

No Caption Provided

If you're not interested in the Elite controller but are looking for a special Xbox One pad themed around Gears of War 4, you still have options. Microsoft is launching a blood-splattered Gears of War 4 Xbox One controller and a JD Fenix-themed one in October.

Gears of War 4 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you can buy it (digitally) on Xbox One and get the Windows 10 PC version free or vice versa.
