Sea of Thieves is finally almost here, and Xbox is releasing a limited edition controller to celebrate the occasion.

The controller is a dark purple with green spray paint–style accents, features a glow-in-the-dark skull in the middle, and stands out with its gold trigger buttons and compass design around the left analog stick. Bluetooth means that it’s also compatible with PC, which is perfect considering Sea of Thieves is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you can jump back and forth between console and PC.

It’s a smart-looking controller, but what really makes it stand out is that it comes with in-game content. Purchasing the controller will net you “exclusive in-game Ferryman Clothing Set DLC,” plus a 14-day subscription to Xbox Live Gold and a 14-day free trial of Xbox Game Pass. The “exclusive” makes it sound like the only way to obtain this DLC is by buying the controller, but we’ll have to wait until the game comes out to see for ourselves.

You can pre-order the controller now prior to its launch on February 6th, a full month and two weeks before the actual game is released.

Sea of Thieves comes Xbox One and PC on March 20th.
