Microsoft will release a new controller for Xbox One later this year that introduces a new d-pad, new triggers and swappable components. The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, Microsoft says, offers "limitless customization," "pro-level accuracy" and more.

In a video of the controller, the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller promises hair-trigger locks, a quartet of paddles on the back, thumbstick sensitivity curves and trigger min/max values.

Here's a video of the new Xbox One gamepad in action.

Update: The Microsoft website for the Elite Wireless Controller is now live, showing a $149.99 price.
