The Stormcloud Vapor Xbox Series X/S Controller has been officially announced

Microsoft has officially announced its latest Xbox controller colour.

Confirming a leak last month, the Stormcloud Vapor Special Edition wireless colour boasts a “dynamic dark navy swirl” and is “inspired by clouds and storming skies” according to Microsoft.

Because of the design, which looks like a puff of vapour, each controller will have its own unique pattern.

According to Microsoft, the controller features “rubberized, blue diamond-pattern grips on the back case” for enhanced grip.

It also comes with its own exclusive dynamic background – featuring animated smoky swirls – which is added to the player’s Xbox console when they plug in the controller for the first time.

The controller will be available on August 8, and will be priced at $69.99 / €69.99 / £64.99. Pre-orders are available now through the Microsoft Store and local retailers.

The Stormcloud Vapor controller joins the existing line of colourful Xbox wireless controllers which includes the likes of Shock Blue, Pulse Red, Deep Pink, Electric Volt and Velocity Green.
