Thanks to an incredible bit of ‘synergy,’ Microsoft and developer Crystal Dynamics have worked together to design and create a super detailed limited edition Xbox 360 controller to coincide with the release of Tomb Raider in March.
Simply called the Tomb Raider Limited Edition Wireless Controller, the gamepad will be available for an estimated retail price of $59.99 in the US and £39.99 in the UK, and those who buy the controller will be given a download code to redeem an exclusive playable Tomb Raider character in the game.
Here’s the skinny on the controller’s design:
“[The] controller features a two-layer colour finish with laser etching to create a realistic and tactile worn appearance. It’s inspired by Lara’s iconic climbing axe and the tourniquets that result from the adventure in her intense origin story, as told in this latest title.”
The limited edition controller also features the adjustable d-pad functionality of previously released Xbox 360 gamepads for better control.
Xbox frontman Major Nelson posted a quick video of the limited edition Tomb Raider controller for a closer look – watch below:
