Out of the many announcements at BlizzCon 2017 yesterday came one which has Razer releasing officially licensed Overwatch D.Va gaming peripherals. Not only a favourite hero to play, her gaming background made it a no-brainer to release a new set of gaming peripherals based on her.
“Since launching over a year ago, Overwatch has become a worldwide phenomenon and so has the love and affection for Blizzard’s beloved character, D.Va, says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. She’s a gamer through and through and plays to win. When the idea to have a character-specific suite of products came up, the decision was ‘easy mode.'”
The D.Va gaming gear includes her iconic MEKA headset, a tournament grade D.Va Razer Abyssus Elite gaming mouse, and a D.Va Razer Gloiathus Medium Speed mouse mat. All three peripherals have a black and bright pink/blue colour scheme which reflects D.Va’s default skin colour theme.
The MEKA gaming headset has an omnidirectional mic and in-line controls and is compatible with PlayStation, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile devices. Razer took their best-selling StarCraft mouse, the Abyssus and features a 7200 DPI optical sensor, 220 IPS tracking, and up to 30G acceleration. The mouse also sports Razer Chroma lighting effects which are controlled through the Razer Synapse 3 (Beta) app. Finally, the Gloiathus mouse mat is optimized for all sensor types and sensitivity settings on gaming mice.
