Microsoft consistently releases a trove of unique Xbox wireless controllers, and later this month the Combat Tech Special Edition controller will be added to that list. This comes nearly a year after the Tech line of controllers was first introduced (via Major Nelson).

The Combat Tech Special Edition, seen at the forefront of the image above, “embodies a traditional army color palette with its classic Military Green base color, bright orange accents and military insignia.” Like the two previous Tech controllers, it features a textured laser-etched grip on the front of the controller and rubberized diamond grips on the back.

You can pre-order the Combat Tech Special Edition wireless controller for $69.99 on the Microsoft Store. It will be available starting on March 27, 2018. As noted in the announcement, in select regions you’ll also get 14-day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

If you’re interested in the older editions in this series, you can purchase the Recon Tech and Patrol Tech controllers on the Microsoft Store. While they’re regularly priced at $69.99, both are currently on sale for $59.99.
