Overwatch natively integrates Razer’s Chroma multi-color lighting platform supporting millions of Chroma gaming products worldwide

Irvine, Calif. May 17, 2016

Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the availability of PC peripherals for Overwatch™, the highly anticipated team-based shooter by Blizzard Entertainment, developer and publisher of some of the industry’s most epic games. The suite of customized hardware is led by the Razer ManO’War Tournament Edition (TE) analog wired gaming headset – Razer’s most powerful and feature-packed gaming headset to-date – and is rounded-out with a BlackWidow Chroma keyboard, DeathAdder Chroma mouse and Goliathus Extended mouse mat.

Gamers can look forward to uncompromised audio performance and an array of dynamic Razer Chroma™ lighting effects with the Overwatch-themed mouse and keyboard from Razer, which will change based on in-game actions, including displaying a hero’s signature color, abilities and cooldowns, all displayed in real time.

The Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE gaming headset is designed for performance and comfort over hours of play. It includes a fully retractable MEMS mic with inline volume and mute controls, making verbal communication easy to adjust and crystal clear in the heat of battle. The fully retractable microphone boom pulls out from the left ear cup as needed and its flexible design allows it to be adjusted to a player’s needs on the fly.

The headset has extra-large, 50 mm, gaming-grade drivers that are custom-tuned to ensure team chat and audio cues, like McCree’s Deadeye or Lucio’s Sound Barrier, are heard the way they were intended. A closed ear cup design with plush circumaural padding blocks-out ambient noise. The ear cups on the Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE are also rotatable and have ample, plush ear cushions.

The 3.5 mm connection and included splitter adapter extension cable make the Overwatch Razer ManO’War TE ideal for compatibility with a multitude of platforms.

“We’re proud to give Overwatch players an even more immersive experience with incredible audio and ideal hardware with custom-designed themes and in-game Chroma lighting effects, Overwatch is among the most dynamic and visually impressive games I’ve experienced in years, and the peripherals we’ve designed with Blizzard add a whole new dimension to the fun.” – Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO

The new line of Razer BlackWidow Chroma Overwatch gaming keyboards will also feature the multi-award winning Razer™ Mechanical Switch™, recently updated with an optimized set of actuation and reset points and increased durability of up to 80-million key strokes.

About Overwatch

Overwatch is a team-based, multiplayer shooter featuring a cast of 21 dynamic heroes. Taking place on a near-future Earth, Overwatch gives players the ability to bend time, defy physics, and unleash over-the-top powers and weapons. Teams compete in six-on-six, objective-based maps set across the world; players will vie for control of an ancient temple in Egypt, escort an EMP device through King’s Row in London, battle for control of Lijiang Tower in China, and more—all while swapping between playable characters on the fly.
