Watch out -- there's ice ahead. Yes, we're aware it's just August. We're talking about the new Six Siege x SteelSeries Black Ice Collection, which brings the elusive Black Ice skin from the popular shooter to SteelSeries and KontrolFreek's top performance-driven products.
If you're in love with the icy drip of that legendary Six Siege design, you're going to be head over heels for these new limited edition products featuring the coveted skin. From a grippy mouse pad to performance thumbsticks to help you get your game on, there’s a little something here for everyone.
Get Your Hands On These New Black Ice Products
The Six Siege x SteelSeries Black Ice collection was formed out of the union between SteelSeries and KontrolFreek and a mutual appreciation for the satisfying squad-based shooter Rainbow Six Siege. Each product has been given an exciting, cutting-edge makeover with prominent Black Ice designs so you can enjoy its aesthetic no matter if you ever track down the original in-game or not -- a notoriously difficult feat.
The Black Ice Edition SteelSeries Prime Gaming Mouse delivers the same great ultra-fast speeds with precision tracking, thanks to its TrueMove Air gaming sensor. Its lightning fast Prestige OM switches deliver over 100M crispy clicks, so you can be prepared for just about anything. It also offers over 100 hours of high-performance 1000Hz gameplay per charge, with Quantum 2.0 Wireless connectivity for lag-free gaming. This is the mouse you want on your team.
You're going to need a heavy-duty performance mousepad to go along with the Black Ice Edition Prime Mouse. Pick up the Black Ice Edition QcK Heavy XXL Cloth Gaming Mousepad to keep it smooth and keep it cool. It features a panoramic Black Ice design for limitless tracking space, offering maximum coverage for every single mouse movement you make in-game. No matter what maneuvers you make, you're good to go.
On the KontrolFreek side, you'll want to snatch up the Black Ice Edition Performance Thumbsticks, which come with a brand new, original ergonomic design inspired by the Black Ice skin. As always, they'll offer exceptional grip and control to ensure you can give your all in your favorite shooter or action game.
How Did We Get Here?
You may remember that, back in December, SteelSeries officially acquired KontrolFreek, its second major acquisition of 2020. Ever since then, the synergy between both brands has been explosive. We brought our expertise in performance controller accessories to the table to align with SteelSeries' expansive vision for its headsets, mice, keyboards, mousepads, and more. Our community of over 4 million gamers have only benefited from the marriage of excellent peripherals and our accessories to go with them, and we can't wait to see where this partnership goes in the future.
The Perfect Collaboration
When you take a step back and look at how our two brands have come together, you've got to acknowledge it makes perfect sense! Both SteelSeries and KontrolFreek are brands focused on innovation and design, forever working to push our respective mediums forward. We're always working to create new products that we know our customers will love -- and we’re confident you’ll feel the same about the new collection.
Plus, we’re united by our love of shooters. C’mon -- KontrolFreek and shooters go hand-in-hand, just like SteelSeries. We know what we like, and that’s one arena we both specialize in
Simply put: We're better together. Beyond our mushy feelings for one another (seriously, we think SteelSeries is fantastic), joining forces like this allows for optimal cross-platform play: PC + Console, Controller on Console, just so everyone can have the best experience possible. And with the Black Ice collection, we think you’re all in for a delectably icy little treat.
So, are you ready to make the Black Ice collection yours? Chill out and go snag your goodies now, because they’re absolutely ice cold.
