“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.”

The main new features of the Overwatch-based gaming peripherals is that now they have dynamic Chroma lighting effects that change based on in-game action, including displaying a hero’s signature color and showing indicators on the hero’s abilities, cooldowns and ultimate ability readiness – all displayed in real time thanks to Razer Synapse.
