Sea of Thieves will be one of Microsoft Studios biggest releases this year, and it plans to celebrate with a limited edition controller.
The tweaked controller comes with a paint-splattered face with a glowing skull in the center. Translucent purple joins green plashes and buttons, as well as laser etched barnacles. On the backside is a single golden trigger, as well as a decal on the battery slot.
“Weigh anchor and get ready to fight, sail and loot in style with the Xbox Wireless Controller – Sea of Thieves Limited Edition,” reads the store page. “Gaze into the murky depths of the deep purple translucent design, adorned with laser etched barnacles, one treasured golden trigger, and haunted by a mysterious skull that glows at sundown.”
The controller will become available on February 15 at a price of $74.99. It will be available on the Microsoft Store, as well as retailers like Amazon and Gamestop.
Free Game Pass Access
According to Xbox's Larry Hryb, the controller comes with an exclusive Ferryman Clothing Set, as well as a 14-day Live Gold trial and a 14-day Game Pass trial. However, the game itself won't release until March 20, so you'll have to hold onto your outfit until then.
Alternatively, those who signed up to be a Sea of Thieves Insider before December 1 will get access to the closed beta before launch.
It's clear how quickly the controllers will sell out, but you can pre-order now to ensure one on February 15. Personally, I don't like the design enough to shell out $75, but maybe it looks better in the dark.
