Microsoft’s Xbox One Elite controller is coming October 27, according to the Microsoft Store, where  you can pre-order it. If you do so before 2 p.m. PST on October 23, you’ll receive it the day of its release.

“Unlock your full-gaming potential with this pro-level controller that adapts to your unique style of play and gives you the competitive edge,” reads the description. The controller had its own trailer at E3, where it was revealed to have a faceted D-pad, interchangeable pieces that you can adapt to your hand size, hair-trigger locks, and an overall redesigned look.

If you’re looking to pick up the controller with a brand new Xbox, you might want to wait till November 3, when a bundle including the 1TB Xbox One and the Elite controller will become available in stores for $499.

The Elite controller on its own isn’t cheap—it’ll cost you $149.99 at launch.
