CHICAGO – October 14, 2022 – SteelSeries, the worldwide leader in gaming and esports peripherals, and KontrolFreek®, the creator of Performance Gaming Gear™, today unveiled their latest collaboration with Activision to celebrate the launch of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® II.
Inspired by Call of Duty’s Simon “Ghost” Riley and Task Force 141, and curated for PC and console gamers, the new limited-edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II collection features two versions of the award-winning SteelSeries QcK mousepad, an ultra-exclusive numbered keycap, and a set of KontrolFreek® Performance Thumbsticks.
The SteelSeries QcK mousepad, long hailed as the ‘go-to’ playing surface for PC gaming and esports pros, has been adorned with 2 different designs from the newest chapter in the Call of Duty series, giving fans a choice of either an iconic Ghost or Task Force 141 emblem. SteelSeries QcK mousepads use an exclusive micro-woven cloth for maximum control while being optimized for both low and high-speed CPI tracking movements.
To create the ultimate custom keyboard for Call of Duty fans, a limited-edition numbered artisan keycap is available for gamers to collect. Made from a Zinc Metal Alloy and embossed with a Ghost emblem, along with a laser-etched unique number (1/1000), the keycaps will only be available while supplies last.
KontrolFreek and Call of Duty have a storied history of creating limited-edition Call of Duty Performance Thumbsticks. For 2022, the latest collaboration is designed to give gamers an edge in Modern Warfare II. Featuring a Task Force 141-inspired design and engineered with KontrolFreeks’ proprietary rubber compound, the limited-edition thumbsticks allow users to optimize their in-game sensitivity, giving finer control and maximum precision for neutralizing threats and turning the tides of battle. All KontrolFreek Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II thumbsticks come with an exclusive in-game calling card, while fans that purchase the thumbsticks through KontrolFreek.com will also receive a limited-edition Task Force 141 challenge coin while supplies last.
“KontrolFreek continues to be an excellent partner, and we are proud to work together once again to provide both enthusiasts and casual gamers unique ways to celebrate their fandom and amplify their gaming experiences,” said Ratna Kirpal, Senior Vice President, Global Consumer Products, Activision.
