StarCraft II proved quite popular, mostly thanks to keeping the strategy mechanics of the previous game, and its expansion pack is almost ready to debut, which, naturally, means that peripheral makers are milking the franchise for all it's worth.
The name of the upcoming expansion pack is StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. The game is the reason that Razer made the now keyboard, mouse and headset.
The exact names of the peripherals are Razer Spectre StarCraft II Gaming Mouse, the Razer Marauder StarCraft II Gaming Keyboard and the Razer Banshee StarCraft II Gaming Headset.
All of them have custom backlighting, colored a deep shade of purple, and they even have an (Actions-Per-Minute) Lighting System.
This system responds to player maneuvers and speed, providing feedback. It is a sort of measuring scale for in-game efficiency.
"The initial response we received on the announcement of the original StarCraft II peripherals was simply amazing and, as a way of giving back to our diehard fans and the StarCraft community, we want to make these products available once more," said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder, CEO and creative director of Razer.
"These peripherals speak to the quality of Razer products as a whole and give StarCraft players the edge they crave on the battlefield."
The mouse, keyboard and headset have a "gaming-optimized design" with "an emphasis on portability."
Razer was obviously thinking about potential StarCraft II multiplayer tournaments when it fashioned the items. The peripherals will look good and work well.
Of course, buyers will have to make sure on their own that their performance lives up to their fancy equipment if they ever get involved in that kind of competition.
