Remember how Counter-Strike used to be all the rage those years ago when the Half-Life mod grew to be a global phenomenon? Well, it is still a very popular game today, although there are other attractive alternatives around. SteelSeries has worked with Valve to churn out a limited-edition line of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) branded peripherals, where this new mouse and mousepad will boast of a design that is based on CS:GO’s most legendary gun skin, the M4A4 Howl.
Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO, shared, “Valve has been a valued partner for a long time, first with the creation of the Rival 300 Fade and Rival 300 Hyper Beast, and CS:GO integration in SteelSeries Engine. The Rival 310 and QcK+ Limited Howl Editions are the next chapter in our partnership to help CS:GO players be as accurate as possible while sporting an iconic look.”
Firstly, the SteelSeries Rival 310 mouse was specially developed to deliver an unparalleled degree of accuracy courtesy of the exclusive SteelSeries TrueMove3 sensor. The Rival 310 Howl Edition would feature the legendary design of CS:GO’s most infamous gun skin, boasting of a split-trigger button design and multi-color Prism RGB illumination that is compatible with SteelSeries Engine software. Expect to fork out $69.99 for the Rival 310 Howl Edition.
As for the QcK+ Limited Howl Edition mousepad, this 450mm x 400mm x 3mm gaming peripheral is made of a micro-woven cloth that has been specially engineered to improve mouse glide and product minimal friction. Sporting a high thread count as well as surface variation, tracking accuracy is optimized for both optical and laser sensors. Expect the QcK+ Limited Howl Edition to retail for $29.99. Either way, you will be able to own a gaming mouse and mousepad combo that is guaranteed to earn you kudos and compliments from those who know their Counter-Strike and would love to give it a go.
