The very biggest game releases usually come with some form of accessory to help complement the experience and that is no more true than with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This time round, KontrolFreek are back – and they are bringing some rather stunning Xbox One and PS4 thumbsticks with them.

Announcing a partnership with Activision and Treyarch Studios, KontrolFreek have confirmed that a brand new Performance Thumbstick based on the juggernaut of the Black Ops franchise will soon be arriving.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Performance Thumbsticks will be made available on June 5th 2018, not only from KontrolFreek themselves, but also from the very best global retailers. If you fancy grabbing a pair, then you could do worse than pre-order them right now as until June 4th 2018, you’ll find a special commemorative gift included – an exclusive Black Ops 4 Performance Thumbstick pin.


But the thumbsticks are why we are here and the latest KontrolFreek addition looks set to wow gamers the world over. Created in order to maximize player performance regardless of playstyle, the Black Ops 4 sticks will come with an original laser-etched Black Ops 4 design with the classic orange and black motif in situ. Coming with both sticks in high-rise form, these will help you out in the most tense of situations, allowing for fast, accurate target acquisition and agile player movements
