Xbox Is Getting An Officially Licensed Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Controller

Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is out on Xbox today, but if you're willing to hold your Elden Ring horses, you could be playing through this new FromSoftware expansion with an officially licensed Shadow of the Erdtree controller.

Yep, Thrustmaster has announced a new version of its 'ESWAP' pro controller to coincide with the new DLC. This is a high-end gamepad with additional back buttons, extra-responsive face buttons and in this case, a modular design where you can pick and choose the analog stick layout to your liking.

Now, we actually reviewed a Forza Horizon 5 version of this pad last year, and we thought it was a pretty great alternative to the official Xbox Elite Controller. The main downside to the Thrustmaster option is that it's completely wired, but the rest of the pad holds up pretty well - and this Elden Ring edition is actually an updated version of the controller too.

Anyway, if you can afford to stump up the $200 price tag for this thing, the Thrustmaster Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree Controller is now available to pre-order at Amazon - and it's out in August 2024.
