Microsoft finally revealed March 20, 2018 as the release date for Rare's online pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves. If you've been eagerly awaiting the game, that's still quite a wait to hit the seas and start hunting for treasure. Thankfully, Microsoft has some extra booty to stoke the hype with Sea of Thieves fans ahead of launch: a limited edition controller.
Available for preorder now, the Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller sports a pretty slick set of customizations. Made up of a largely purple color, it features teal accents in the form of glowing paint splatter and button labels. Of course, there's also a big glowing skull planted right in the middle of the controller, as well as some worn detailing on the right grip. The compass directions around the left thumbstick are also a pretty nice touch fitting of a nautical theme.
On top of the custom details, Microsoft says that the controller will come with an exclusive in-game Ferryman Clothing Set, along with 14-day trials to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.
It's a pretty spiffy controller that brings to mind the extensive details Microsoft put into a similar custom Gears of War 4 controller around that games launch. Unfortunately, it will cost you quite a pretty penny. The Sea of Thieves Limited Edition controller can be preordered now for $74.99. The controller is due for release ahead of the game, though, on February 6, 2018. Sea of Thieves itself is also up for preorder at Microsoft for $59.99.
