Razer unleashes a spread of Overwatch-themed gaming peripherals

It didn’t take long for Razer to jump on the Overwatch bandwagon, as the gaming peripheral company has just recently launched a keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and gaming headset that have been decked out with an Overwatch motif.

We should probably point out that these four devices aren’t actually new per se, as they’re essentially existing products that have been given an external makeover and not much else.

First up, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma Overwatch gaming keyboard, which are fitted with Razer’s own green mechanical switches. They have an actuation force of 50g, a lifespan of 80 million keystrokes, and a 10-key rollover to accommodate your rabid button mashing habits. Of course, being a Chroma peripheral, it’s able to light up in 16.8 million different colors as well. The only difference between the BlackWidow Chroma Overwatch and the regular BlackWidow Chroma is that the former has an orange Overwatch color scheme and an Overwatch branding above its numpad.

Then we have the Razer DeathAdder Chroma Overwatch gaming mouse, which has a 10,000 dpi optical sensor, 1,000Hz ultrapolling, and like its other Chroma brethren, is able to glow in 16.8 million different colors. Again, the only difference between it and its regular counterpart is the presence of an Overwatch logo on its back.

Going hand-in-hand with the Razer DeathAdder Chroma Overwatch is the Razer Goliathus Extended Speed Overwatch mouse mat which, well, is a Razer Goliathus Extended Speed mouse mat that has a fairly large Overwatch logo and branding.

Last but not least, we have the Overwatch Razer ManO’War Tournament Edition gaming headset, which you’ll be able to see from a mile away thanks to its striking orange color scheme. Nonetheless, it should sound like a dream too, seeing that it has been given large 50mm neodymium magnet drivers to work with. The Overwatch Razer ManO’War Tournament Edition also comes replete with in-line controls that allows you to control the volume of your game and mute its MEMS microphone – which is both retractable and flexible.

The Razer DeathAdder Chroma Overwatch, Razer Blackwidow Chroma Overwatch, and Razer Goliathus Extended Speed Overwatch will be retailing for US$79.99 (~RM325), US$179.99 (~RM732), and US$34.99 (~RM142) respectively. They will be shipping worldwide by the end of this month.

The Overwatch Razer ManO’War Tournament Edition, on the other hand, will be going for US$109.99 (~RM443) and will only be shipping worldwide in June.
