Gears 5’s launch draws closer each day, and with that, the marketing for the shooter is being kicked up a notch. Usually, that means themed controllers and bundled special edition consoles (especially with first party games). Well, we don’t know anything about the latter yet, but it seems a Gears 5-themed Xbox One controller will indeed be coming soon.
Images of the controller seem to have leaked online, and you can see one such leaked image below, via Twitter user @IdleSloth1984. The controller, sporting colours of white, grey, and slightly darker grey, looks pretty cool, especially with that instantly recognizable Gears crest on the home button. It doesn’t look like it’s fake, so here’s hoping Microsoft officially announces it soon- it wouldn’t be the first time they’ve paired a major upcoming first party launch with a new Xbox One controller, too.
Gears 5 is out for Xbox One and PC on September 10- and no, it won’t have a battle royale mode (at least not at launch). There’s currently a second Versus tech test for the game that’s going on, but it ends tomorrow, so if you want to give it a go and have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, jump in pronto.
