If the news of the new Razer Chroma Naga Chroma 12-button MMO gaming mouse wasn’t enough for you today, then you will also be pleased to hear that Razer has joined forces with Blizzard Entertainment to release a set of officially licensed Overwatch gaming gear!

Blizzards new 6v6 first-person shooter looks set to take the competitive gaming world by storm, which means there will be demand for some equally action packed peripherals. The new range of Razer hardware comes fully equipped with the Razer Chroma RGB lighting engine, adding the ever popular BlackWidow keyboard, DeadAdder gaming mouse and the Goliathus Extended Mouse Mat, all kitted out with a kick-ass Overwatch theme.

“Overwatch is one of the most sought-after titles out there and it’s a blast to play,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’re excited to bring Blizzard players, our own fans, and PC gamers everywhere the preferred FPS peripherals of eSports athletes from world-leading teams. Clad in a custom-designed theme and with in-game Chroma lighting effects created by Blizzard specifically for the keyboard and mouse, these peripherals add another layer of immersion to the Overwatch experience.”

Not only that, but the Chroma API has been tweaked too, allowing Overwatch to offer up dynamic lighting effects and changes based on the in-game action. Actions such as your heroes colour, cooldowns, Ultimate ability readiness and more can be represented directly on the peripherals lighting system.

“We’re excited to be working with Razer to bring Overwatch players and FPS fans a line of high-quality gear to take into battle,” said Matt Beecher, vice president of global consumer products at Blizzard Entertainment. “The development team has come up with some cool ways to integrate Overwatch’s gameplay with Razer’s technology, giving Blizzard gamers a whole new way to customize their experience.”
