Turtle Beach has a brand new Xbox controller popping out subsequent month, and it’s including wi-fi performance — although not in the best way you would possibly count on. The Recon Cloud is a brand new model of the Turtle Beach Recon wired USB-C controller, and along with a brand new “blue magma” colorway, it has Bluetooth connectivity to be used with Android gadgets and Windows PCs.
The uncommon facet — particularly for a controller that prices $99.99 — is that tying it to an Xbox console nonetheless requires plugging in a USB-C cable. It’s anticipated to ship on October sixteenth, and preorders can already be placed now on Turtle Beach’s site. That’s a a lot steeper price than the usual $59.95 Recon, which continuously falls to around $45 when on sale.
The Recon Cloud has a built-in rechargeable battery rated for 30 hours of recreation time through Bluetooth, which is able to fast charging to get again about 8.5 hours of battery in round quarter-hour. It additionally consists of one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and an adjustable cell phone clip — which attaches to a mounting port on the rear of the controller.

The Recon Cloud additionally carries ahead all of the audio and FPS-friendly options of the usual Recon, like Superhuman Hearing mode, 4 built-in audio EQ presets, mic monitoring, adjustable recreation chat audio combine, Pro-Aim Focus mode, and two programmable rear buttons. Those fancy audio options require you to plug into USB-C on an Xbox or PC, which is possibly forgivable since recreation streaming isn’t actually ideally suited for on-line shooters the place they’re most useful anyway.
The commonplace Recon controller is ranked in our Xbox controller buying guide as an important possibility for anybody who performs loads of aggressive shooters and doesn’t have the funds for one thing premium, just like the Xbox Elite or Scuf controllers. I’m undecided spending $100 on practically the identical Recon controller with added Bluetooth makes fairly as a lot sense, however maybe as soon as examined, the flexibility of some wi-fi connectivity might show helpful.
However, the Recon Cloud makes no point out of connectivity with iPhones or iPads, which is odd as these Apple gadgets often play good with wireless controller support. Turtle Beach’s CEO, Juergen Stark, does tease within the firm’s press release that there’s extra to come back: “The Recon Cloud is the first of our expanded lineup of mobile controllers launching this year, with additional new products designed for iOS and other consoles coming soon.” Perhaps iOS customers must anticipate their very own cloud controller, and possibly Turtle Beach’s controller audio methods would possibly discover a new residence on the PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch.
