Microsoft is producing a limited-edition version of its popular Xbox One Elite controller that’s skinned for Gears of War 4, and the gamepad is now available for pre-order at GameStop.

The $199.99 controller, which Microsoft unveiled at E3, will be available only at GameStop and the Microsoft Store. It comes with a bunch of swappable components — all of which are Gears-themed, of course — including D-pads and paddles. For a closer look, check out the gallery below. Pre-orders are now available at GameStop stores and on the retailer’s website.

Microsoft will release the Gears 4 Limited Edition Xbox One Elite controller Oct. 4, one week before Gears 4 itself. The original $149.99 Elite controller was available in short supply for much of last fall because Microsoft underestimated demand. This time around, that doesn’t appear to be the case, since pre-orders for the Gears 4 gamepad are still open at the Microsoft Store.
