Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO Gaming Peripherals Announced
Razer, BioWare, and LucasArts, announce a Keyboard, Mouse, Mouse Mat and Headset designed for Star Wars: The Old Republic
Razer, the world's leading high-end precision gaming brand, is proud to send your Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming experience into hyperspace with the release of a licensed Star Wars: The Old Republic product line, expected to launch in conjunction with the hotly anticipated title. In collaboration with BioWare and LucasArts, this collection of gaming weaponry will equip you, whether you're carrying out the work of the Dark Sith lords or righteously defending the people of the Galactic Republic.
"As fans of Star Wars ourselves, we are absolutely thrilled for the chance to create a product line for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The result is a spectacular collection of the highest grade peripherals that is a tribute to the franchise, its fans and gamers alike," said Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, President, Razer USA. "And whether you're using our revolutionary new keyboard with the world's first LCD touch-panel, or the multi-award winning MMO gaming mouse styled in the Star Wars universe with a twelve-button thumb grid, it goes without saying, we equip gamers to win."
Star Wars: The Old Republic is being developed by BioWare, creators of the critically-acclaimed Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic. With this product line by Razer, gamers can fearlessly dive into the game armed with unparalleled competition-grade gaming technology fully decked in aesthetics that evoke the Star Wars universe. All peripherals come with the ability to interchange Galactic Republic and Sith Empire faction symbols to showcase your allegiance with pride.
"We want gamers to fully immerse themselves in the expansive universe of The Old Republic, and that extends to the peripherals they use," said Rob Cowles, Senior Product Marketing Manager, LucasArts. "When we began development of the peripherals with Razer, our goal was to not only compliment game play but also create products that feel like a part of the Star Wars universe. Everyone wants an Aurebesh keyboard---right?"
The Star Wars: The Old Republic Gaming Keyboard is a revolutionary first for gaming technology. It features a full-color multi-touch LCD panel with a row of adaptive tactile keys above that can cycle through skills, hotkeys and macros with matching graphics from the game for maximum competitive efficiency. These adaptive tactile keys were introduced as an unprecedented new concept technology by Razer at CES 2011 and are now available to gamers worldwide for the first time through this keyboard.
The Star Wars: The Old Republic product line also includes a wireless gaming mouse with a twelve button thumb-grid for more skills at your fingertips, a dual-sided mouse mat for precise swiping, and a 5.1 surround sound headset for total comfort and immersive positional audio. Arm yourself with the entire line-up and your domination into the far reaches of the galaxy will be effortless.
