Before the salty swashbuckling pirate adventure Sea of Thieves sails onto PC and Xbox One, Microsoft dropped this sweet tie-in limited edition wireless controller that might just be the real treasure that you seek.
Gaze into the murky depths of the controller’s deep purple translucent design, adorned with laser etched barnacles, one treasured golden trigger, and at its centre, a haunting mysterious skull that glows at sundown.
Like all wireless Xbox One controllers, this special edition beauty has textured grips, responsive thumbsticks and an enhanced D-pad for added comfort and performance. Microsoft encourages custom button mapping and supports compatible headsets with a 3.5mm stereo headset jack. Bluetooth is also supported for playing, plundering and pillaging on Windows 10 PCs and tablets. The Xbox Wireless Controller – Sea of Thieves Limited Edition is available now for RRP $99.95
If you’ve missed the Sea of Thieves hype, it’s an upcoming online multiplayer game where you join a crew of like-minded scoundrels to sail the open seas, drink, loot and fight your way to pirate glory. It’s the newest game from legendary studio Rare – the developers behind Nintendo 64 classics like Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark.
We spent some time with the game ahead of its launch and its shaping up to be a memorable online experience, that’s more enjoyable if you bring some friends. Sea of Thieves arrives on PC and Xbox One March 20.
