Additionally, Razer will also introduced a Starcraft II messenger bag and an E-Sport Pro Gamer case. Some of these products will be showcased at BlizzCon later this month.
Razer™, a leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, has joined forces with Blizzard Entertainment, a premier developer and publisher of entertainment software, to co-develop StarCraft® II gaming peripherals powered by Razer technology. With the upcoming launch of StarCraft II, Razer and Blizzard Entertainment are collaborating on bringing gamers a quality tournament-grade mouse, keyboard and headset specifically designed to maximize the StarCraft II gameplay experience.
“It has been a little over a decade since StarCraft first rocked the video game industry and began a legacy that continues to this day,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “We’re extremely excited to be working with Blizzard Entertainment on the StarCraft II gaming peripherals and gear. The project is in the development phase with a focus on serving up innovative features while offering precision, cutting-edge technology, accuracy, speed and comfort.”
“Razer’s high-quality gaming products have long been popular among our global community of players, and we’re pleased to now be collaborating with them directly,” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “Through this partnership, we’re looking forward to working with Razer to develop a line of peripherals that will complement the fast-paced action of StarCraft II.”
The first Razer StarCraft II tournament level gaming peripherals are poised to revolutionize the RTS category. The new line of professional gaming peripherals are engineered and designed from the ground up with unique exclusive features to cater to the StarCraft II community. Razer will incorporate its expertise in design, ergonomics, technology, and professional gaming peripherals to give StarCraft II gamers the competitive edge.
In addition to the co-development of Razer StarCraft II gaming peripherals, Razer will design an exclusive StarCraft II messenger bag, backpack, and E-Sport Pro Gamer Case.
