Fans of God of War and limited edition controllers alike, rejoice. A new controller is being added to PlayStation's lineup, but if you want to buy it, you'll need to act fast whenever you see it available.

First revealed during a September 2022 State of Play presentation, Sony has prepared the God of War Ragnarok limited edition PS5 DualSense controller.

Naturally, this limited edition controller marks the arrival of God of War Ragnarok, the widely anticipated game that's meant to close out the chapter of Norse mythology in the God of War franchise. This being a limited edition controller means that you'll want to buy it as soon as possible if you see it in stock. Here's where you can currently buy it.

Being a DualSense directly from Sony, this controller naturally features the same DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers found in other models. These features allow for enhanced sensations not possible in other controllers, with the triggers tightening to match a drawing bowstring, or the controller pattering to match falling rain or snow.

What really makes this controller special is the color scheme and theme, with blue and white reflecting the ice and snow of Ragnarok, while the bear and wolf on the touchpad are meant to represent Kratos and Atreus, who both have roles to play in the end of all things.

It's very slightly more expensive than you'll usually find with the best PS5 controllers, being available at preorder for $75 rather than the usual $70 that is charged for a regular white PS5 DualSense controller.

The listing at GAME is still available for anyone in the UK that is looking to try and ahold of this controller. This was also one of the first listings for the controller to go live, making it easily the most-enduring way to buy so far.

Anyone in Canada who wants to buy this controller can no longer look to their regional Best Buy, as the listing has been removed. It's still up at the regional Walmart, but quantity is no guarantee.

Right now, the God of War Ragnarok PS5 DualSense controller is currently listed at the majority of major retailers in the U.S, but we'll be adding more as we see other listings appear across different websites. It's important to note that as we expected,  quantity tends to disappear extremely fast. It's usually out of stock, and whenever it is restocked, it doesn't last long, so there really isn't any time to wait if this is a controller you want to add to your collection.

The God of War Ragnarok PS5 DualSense controller launched on Nov. 9, 2022, meaning it is available alongside the release of the game it's themed after, which also had a release date of November 9. 

There are different editions of God of War Ragnarok available for purchase, though if you haven't already secured an order, getting ahold of the collector's edition or Jotnar Edition may be extremely difficult, as these two versions sold out extremely quickly. Now, they're only briefly available when someone cancels an order from a retailer.

While the DualSense controller can only be used with the PS5 console, God of War Ragnarok is a cross-generation game and is launching across PS4 and PS5. If you want to upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5 edition once you've got Sony's latest console, then you'll need to pay a $10 upgrade fee.

In our review of God of War Ragnarok, contributor Samuel Tolbert wrote that "Across the 40 hours that I played, God of War Ragnarök is a great experience. The combat feels better than ever, the performances are great, and there's plenty to do as you get lost in this version of Norse myth. This is Act 2 and Act 3 of the story that began with God of War (2018), and it's a journey that is fun and harrowing in equal measure, ambitious in its nature, and ruthless in its execution."
