Launching alongside the Moto Z2 Force is Motorola’s new Gamepad Moto Mod. Unveiled back at MWC, this Mod attaches to your phone and enables a set of physical gaming controls. Unlike a Bluetooth controller, this method ditches all of the lag, and also gives the phone a few extra hours of power thanks to the embedded battery.

Like the Nintendo Switch, this Mod offers up two thumbsticks, shoulder button, a D-Pad, action buttons, start/select and a home button. It’s a pretty good package for gamers, and the Moto Z2 Force is certainly up to the challenge.

Take full control of your mobile gaming experience. This Moto Mod features dual control sticks, a D-pad, and four tactile action buttons for a realistic gaming experience. Plus, get responsive control in a snap without wireless input lag or the hassle of Bluetooth pairing.

The Gamepad is launching later this month on August 25th and will run $79.99 when it debuts. Unfortunately, you’ll need to buy it from Verizon Wireless if you’re interested in picking one up. Pre-orders are open now.
