Microsoft has flaunted an honestly excellent custom controller it has concocted for Sea of Thieves.Rare’s pirate-themed action-adventure game Sea of Thieves sandbox game is launching very soon, on 20th March, but this controller will be available even sooner – on 15th February.
Featuring a “translucent design” and “laser-etched barnacles”, the controller also has its own hidden treasure in the form of one single golden trigger (it’s the right trigger, if you’re wondering) as well as a nautical design on the rear of the controller. The front face of the controller has as its centerpiece a glow-in-the-dark skull wearing an eyepatch, and continuing with the nautical theme, the left control stick has the appearance of a compass.
We were still waiting to see when Microsoft officially launch keyboard & mouse support for its most successful gaming console XBOX, but it was all just leaks and rumors but now during a meeting at PAX WEST XBOX PLATFORM Mike Ybarra says – “Keyboard and mouse support is definitely coming. We have to be very smart in how we do that. We’ll leave it a lot up to developer choice. A lot of people tweet me and say “you can’t do this because of fairness,” and we understand that. We run two platforms; the Xbox platform, and the Windows platform.
And so, when we bring keyboard and mouse, we’ll coach developers and say “look, you’ve got to think about your multiplayer pools, if you have a competitive game, people are probably going to want the choice to say I’ll play with other keyboard and mouse people or I’ll play only with controller people, or that I’ll play with any of those.
So you’ll see our first games supporting keyboard and mouse soon, I can’t announce what that is, but soon. And based on developer interest, they’ll choose to do keyboard and mouse, or not“
we are very excited when Microsoft really launch its Keyboard & mouse support and I can’t be waiting anymore.
