Gamescom 2021 is officially underway, and to kick things off, Microsoft showed off a new Xbox Series X and Elite Series 2 Controller with some Halo Infinite flavor.

With the world sadly still in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to the even more highly contagious Delta Variant, Geoff Keighley had to host his Opening Night Live kickoff event for Gamescom from Los Angeles instead of Germany, where the conference is annually held.

It was a night of many reveals during the presentation, with Knightly premiering a plethora of big titles. One big reveal, in particular, was a cinematic trailer for season one of Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer and, of course, confirmation of the game’s campaign and multiplayer arriving on December 8 by Halo Infinite’s creative director Joseph Staten, news that was leaked before the event.

But that is not all that was revealed. Microsoft also announced that gamers could get their hands on a new Elite Series 2 Controller that takes its cues from the legendary Spartan hero. It was available for pre-order (currently out of stock at Microsoft) for $199.99 will launch on November 15, 2021.
