The Special Edition Alpine Green DualShock 4 is coming in April and Looks Incredibly Good

PlayStation has announced today that the Special Edition Alpine Green DualShock 4 is coming to Australia. 

Releasing in Europe on April 15, the Alpine Green DualShock 4 won’t be available in Australia until April 26. 

It’s not clear why there’s a delay, but in Australia, we’re used to getting things later than everyone else; *cough* LEGO Movie 2 *cough*.

Alpine Green DualShock 4

The new controller features a green and white contrasting design which assumedly is supposed to symbolise pine trees and snow.

The Alpine Green Special Edition controller joins a range of other special DualShock 4s including;

  • Magma Red
  • Wave Blue
  • Glacier White
  • Green Camouflage
  • Jet Black

This new special edition DualShock will cost $99.95 AUD and is currently available to pre-order from JB Hi-Fi and EB Games.

As with all DualShock 4s, the new controller features;

  • SHARE button
    Capture and show off your finest moments with just the push of a button. Upload gameplay videos and screenshots directly from your PS4 system or livestream your gameplay, all without disturbing your in-progress game.
  • Touch pad
    Get even more precise control with the built-in touch pad that now shows the unique light bar, adding an extra dimension to your games.
  • Refined analog sticks and triggers
    Get the edge with a much tighter sense of control over in-game actions.
  • Light bar
    See even more of your games with the integrated light bar that glows with various colours depending on in-game action – now visible on the touch pad.
  • Built-in speaker
    Bring your games to life and hear every detail with sound effects coming directly from your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller.
  • Stereo headset jack
    Listen to your games in private and hear every boom, bang and blast with an integrated 3.5mm audio jack for your headphones.
  • Motion sensors
    Rock and roll as a highly sensitive built-in accelerometer and gyroscope detect the motion, tilt and rotation of your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller.
  • USB connectivity
    Charge your controller from any USB port and communicate data via the USB cable.
