Microsoft concluded its gamescom 2021 digital event a couple of minutes ago with a long segment about Forza Horizon 5, revealing a cool-looking Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox Wireless controller. This is the first Xbox controller to feature a transparent yellow finish, with a visible rumble motor and lighting effects appearing through the Xbox button.

According to the Xbox team, the design of this limited edition controller is inspired by the powder fireworks that will be visible in the in-game Horizon Festival. This isn’t all style over substance, though, as the limited edition controller will also feature textured grips on the triggers and bumpers, and custom bottom and side dimple patterned grips which are “inspired by perforated style performance car steering wheels.”

The Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Controller is already available for pre-order on the US Microsoft Store, and it will start shipping on November 9 right alongside Forza Horizon 5. Coming at $74.99, it’s a bit pricier than other Limited Edition controllers, but it also comes with an exclusive DLC for a Forza edition car, cosmetic item, and a victory emote to use in-game.
