Just earlier this week, SteelSeries revealed their MLG edition of the Sensei mouse, but it seems they’re not done with themed peripherals at that. Over at E3, the popular PC gaming peripheral manufacturer has reveal various products designed around three upcoming titles: Guild Wars 2, DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The whole range looks hot, and regular readers will now my slight fetish for camouflage designs makes the CS:GO headset an instant must have.
The biggest range of the the three features white peripherals, emblazoned with the red dragon design from the Guild Wars 2 logo. There’s the slim profile, Guild Wars 2 Gaming Headset, the Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse, with seven programmable buttons and red illumination, as well as three new QcK mouse pads featuring different Guild Wars 2 designs. SteelSeries have also announced that there’ll be a keyboard coming too, although we’re yet to see what it looks like. It should be unveiled later this year.
“Choosing the right peripherals partner for the Guild Wars 2 family of products was incredibly important. Making the decision to go with SteelSeries was about more than just choosing the best looking designs, but also about choosing a team whose products enhance the game experience and is recognized for delivering premium quality peripherals to gamers,” said Randall Price, ArenaNet SVP of Global Business. “We’re ecstatic about the upcoming release of Guild Wars 2 and excited to work with SteelSeries to bring these co-branded products to Guild Wars fans.”
Moving on to the Counter-Strike stuff, we see the Counter-Strike logo design upon a QcK mouse pad, a CS:GO version of SteelSeries’ Kana Gaming mouse and, my personal favourite product that’s been unveiled, the camouflage-coloured version of the highly praised Siberia v2 Headset.
Then for Valve’s DOTA 2, we get the SteelSeries DOTA 2 Limited Edition Mouse Bundle. It includes a DOTA 2 themed QcK Mini mousepad (which looks similar to the DOTA 2 QcK+ they revealed back in August, but smaller), as well as a new DOTA 2 mouse, which I believe is also a Kana.
SteelSeries CMO, Kim Rom said, “We worked with the professional teams that are playing and winning in Counter-Strike and Dota tournaments and with them, identified peripheral features and technologies that make their experience and performance better. We’ve chosen and perfected exactly the right product mix and are excited to bring them to market with their respective games.”
Finally, here’s a gallery featuring all of the new product images we received from SteelSeries. No doubt you’ll also be able to find out more about this new lineup over at SteelSeries.com
