As it does with most of its big new releases, Microsoft is launching a limited-edition Xbox One controller for its swashbuckling pirate action/adventure game Sea of Thieves. The nice-looking controller has a deep purple translucent design, with a skull in the middle that glows in the dark. The gamepad also sports “laser-etched barnacles, while one of the triggers sports a golden colour.

Additionally, it comes with the “Ferryman Clothing Set” DLC, along with 14-day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. It launches on February 6. This is of course the newer-model controller, so it has Bluetooth support for use with Windows 10 PC and tablets. In terms of consoles, it supports Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X.

The controller launches on February 6, which is more than a month before Sea of Thieves hits shelves on March 20 for Xbox One and PC. Developer Rare recently revealed more details about how the game’s progression system works. A beautiful Sea of Thieves art book from Dark Horse is also slated to release in early 2018.
