Sea of Thieves is getting a beautiful Xbox One controller

UPDATE: Includes exclusive DLC.

UPDATE 8/1/18: Remember that lovely Sea of Thieves Xbox controller? (You're reading an article about it, so you should.) Well, a new product page has revealed it includes exclusive costume DLC.

Want the Ferryman Clothing Set DLC? You'll need the £65 controller to unlock it. (There's no picture yet of how the costume looks.)

Also included in the box are codes for 14 days of Xbox Live Gold trial and a 14-day Xbox Game Pass trial.

Does all of that make you more likely to buy one of the controllers, or less?

ORIGINAL STORY 4/1/18: Microsoft has shown off a frankly beautiful custom controller it has cooked up for Sea of Thieves.

Rare's piratey sandbox game is launching very soon, on 20th March, but this controller will be available even sooner - on 15th February.

And yes, that indented pirate logo is indeed glow-in-the-dark.

The pad has "laser etched barnacles" for you to grip and a single shiny gold trigger to go along with its translucent deep purple design.

Microsoft is selling them for £65 a pop and you can pre-order now.
