It’s one of the biggest game releases of the year, and to celebrate the launch of Gears 5, the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers – Razer – are found to be launching their latest exclusive line of gaming peripherals for Xbox One and PC.
The Gears of War branded Razer kit for Xbox One and PC sees a Gears 5 Edition of the stunning Turret for Xbox One wireless mouse and keyboard, a similarly themed Thresher for Xbox One wireless headset, the Huntsman keyboard, the Mamba Wireless mouse and the Goliathus Extended Chroma mouse mat. And they all look absolutely stunning.
As you would expect from this collaboration, each and every one of the Razer peripherals come complete with exclusive licensed branding, colorway and unique cosmetic in-game items for use in Gears 5 multiplayer.
It would be wrong of us to not focus time and effort on the Xbox One Line and it must be said that the Turret and Thresher look brilliant with the Gears 5 motifs attached. Doing away with the standard default colour schemes, the Turret is the world’s first wireless keyboard and mouse designed for Xbox One – with a built-in mouse mat included, no less – and this Gears 5 Edition comes with some bonus DLC: the Lancer Skin and Mark. If you wish to know more about how good the Turret is, make sure you check out our recent review. Should you wish to purchase it, you’re looking at a £299.99 / $299.99 MSRP (US, CA, UK, AU and NZ only).
The Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition (£179.99 / $179.99 / €199.99 MSRP) meanwhile is Razer’s premium wireless headset for Xbox One, connecting directly to the console without the need of a dongle. It comes with Windows Sonic for virtual surround sound included, and ensures that it’ll be found delivering superior positional audio along with a lag-free wireless connection and digital microphone for clear communication. Again, this Gears 5 Edition comes complete with the same bonus DLC as the Turret – a Lancer Skin and Mark.
Away from console and the Gears 5 PC kit runs as follows, with each coming complete with bonus DLC that covers a Blood Spray and Banner:
- The Razer Huntsman – Gears 5 Edition keyboard (£199.99 / $199.99 / €219.99 MSRP) elevates gaming to the next level with its top-selling Razer Opto-Mechanical™ Switch that literally delivers speed-of-light performance.
- The Razer Mamba Wireless – Gears 5 Edition mouse (£129.99 / $129.99 / €149.99 MSRP) delivers superior wireless performance and holds up to 50 hours of battery life.
- The Razer Goliathus Extended Chroma – Gears 5 Edition (£79.99 / $79.99 / €89.99 MSRP) is a supersized mouse mat powered by Razer Chroma RGB lighting.
If you are serious about Gears 5 and want to express your love for the game in the best possible way, then kitting yourself out with some of Razer’s Gears 5 range is certainly the way to go. You can grab the kit from Razer today!
