SteelSeries Reveals Heroes Of The Storm Mouse and Keypad
COLOGNE, GERMANY (GAMESCOM 2014) – Aug. 15, 2014 – SteelSeries, the global leader in premium gaming peripherals, in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment, today announced the exclusive SteelSeries Heroes of the Storm™ Mouse and QcK Mousepad. While going toe to toe with the most legendary characters of the Blizzard universe, gamers will have the ultimate precision tool to ensure total domination while flaunting exclusive artwork created by the Heroes of the Storm team.
“Heroes of the Storm has been such a highly anticipated title that we were excited to create a product exclusively for the game. We knew that Blizzard and players would want a mouse designed for versatility and that would evoke the aesthetics from within the game,” said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. “The SteelSeries Engine is such an important component of this mouse in that players can save an unlimited number of profiles and settings for each that would reflect the type of character you’re playing; assigning illumination settings to each of your profiles to differentiate between characters is another way the mouse can enhance gameplay.”
SHINE IN THE HEAT OF WAR
To complement Blizzard’s highly anticipated hero brawler, the Heroes of the Storm Mouse features LED illumination, an officially licensed Heroes of the Storm design, and top notch performance based off of our award winning Sensei [RAW]. The SteelSeries Heroes of the Storm Mouse is a fully- loaded mouse that comes packed with features that are not available anywhere else.
Its bright-blue LED illumination is featured in 3 zones and can be configured with multiple levels of pulsation. Powered by the SteelSeries Engine software suite, players are equipped with advanced customization options and the ability to create and store an unlimited number of profiles.
LET THE BATTLE BEGIN
From tournament-grade switches for intense clicking, to a pro-grade laser sensor and a CPI range from 1-5,700, the mouse delivers the best in gaming performance that will allow heroes like Kerrigan to dominate the Nexus. Flip it over to find XL-sized UPE material feet for a smooth and consistent glide. Give it a tug or roll over it with your desk chair; the 6.5ft anti-tangle black and purple cord is braided nylon.
The SteelSeries Heroes of the Storm Mouse has an ambidextrous, all-grip design, which offers a very distinct feel for the player. For gamers who worry about sweaty palms, the mouse features a rubberized black, hand-sweat resistant coating that allows for an exceptional grip and soft-touch comfort even during the most frantic gaming sessions. The SteelSeries Heroes of the Storm Mouse feels like an extension of your arm when you’re playing, to help ensure your hero wins the battle.
To accompany the exclusive mouse, players will find a complement to their set-up with the SteelSeries QcK Heroes of the Storm Mousepad. It features the game’s vibrant logo atop a high-quality cloth material with an optimized texture that guarantees both smoothness and glide while a non-slippery rubber base holds the surface in place.
The Heroes of the Storm Mouse and QcK Mousepad will be available later this year for $69.99 / €69.99 MSRP and $14.99 / €14.99 MSRP. For more information about the Heroes of the Storm Mouse, please visit http://steelseries.com/heroes.
