Microsoft will release a limited edition “Project Scorpio” version of the Xbox One X on Nov. 7, the company announced at Gamescom 2017 today. The hardware — an Xbox One X console and controller — will come emblazoned with the console’s codename printed in green.

The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition will also include a “sophisticated and dynamic graphic pattern across the exterior” that Microsoft says was inspired by the original Xbox. The package will also include an exclusive vertical stand.

“When we announced Project Scorpio last year, we were overwhelmed by the excitement from our fans,” Microsoft said in a release. “And although we revealed Project Scorpio as Xbox One X at E3 earlier this year, the codename will live on in the Scorpio Engine that powers the console, as well as in this limited edition console. We designed the Project Scorpio Edition for fans to celebrate both our heritage and the power and precision that we are bringing into our future.”

The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition will cost $499 — like the standard 1 TB Xbox One X — and will only be available via pre-order, Microsoft said.
