Turtle Beach Teams Up With Blizzard For Heroes of the Storm
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Turtle Beach are one of the industry giants when it comes to high-end audio products from the games industry and now they’ll be joining one of the worlds gaming titans in a collaboration that should span a few years. Working with Blizzard, Turtle Beach look set to unleash a range of new high-quality PC gaming headsets for both elite and recreational players based on the upcoming multi-player game, Heroes of the Storm.
Heroes of the Storm is a new raucous online team brawler that draws iconic characters from more than 20 years of Blizzard gaming history, including the award-winning Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft franchises. Heroes of the Storm is uniquely positioned to deliver exciting competitive play thanks to its team-oriented gameplay mechanics and its fast-paced skirmishes. Of course there are already a few big games in this class, but with such huge francises at its disposal, Blizzard and Turtle Beach are in a strong position to compete, especially for the ever growing e-Sports crowd.
The Heroes of the Storm gaming headsets will join Turtle Beach’s growing PC gaming portfolio, which includes three models introduced in 2013 — the surround sound Z SEVEN wired and Z300 wireless headsets, and the stereo Z22 wired headset. The agreement with Blizzard Entertainment will contribute to Turtle Beach’s efforts to increase the company’s share of the PC gaming market.
“Turtle Beach shares our passion for gaming and can deliver world class gaming audio,” said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. “Heroes of the Storm had a terrific reception at BlizzCon 2013, and we’re looking forward to working with Turtle Beach to deliver the best possible audio experience for the game.”
“Turtle Beach is very excited to announce this agreement with Blizzard around Heroes of the Storm,” said Bob Picunko Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach. “We are looking forward to launching state-of-the-art headsets for one of PC gaming’s most anticipated titles, and working with Blizzard to introduce them to both elite and casual players.”
We’re already looking forward to trying out the new game and if it proves as popular as everyone is expecting, then expect some pretty awesome headset designs to follow it in the near future.
Thank you Turtle Beach for providing us with this information.
