KontrolFreek® Takes on the Undead in Call of Duty® Collaboration
Glow-in-the-dark Performance Thumbsticks celebrate the new Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare ‘Zombies in Spaceland’ Mode
ATLANTA, GA – August 17, 2016
In collaboration with Activision Publishing, Inc. and developer Infinity Ward, U.S. based Performance Gaming Gearcompany, KontrolFreek®, has released its first ever glow-in-the-dark product, KontrolFreek Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare ‘Zombies in Spaceland’ CQC Performance Thumbstick™. The limited-edition Performance Thumbstick™ is specifically designed for use with the newly announced Zombies in Spaceland mode that will be featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, releasing on November 4, 2016.
The Zombies in Spaceland Performance Thumbsticks feature an intense, glowing yellow-on-black color scheme ideal for late-night gamers and hardcore zombies fans. The Zombies in Spaceland CQC Performance Thumbsticks snap onto standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One analog sticks, raising the height by 6.1mm. The mid-rise height is perfect for the short-to-medium-range combat typical of Call of Duty Zombies and allows players to make smoother, more accurate movements on their controller. Covered with tactile ridges on the top and outside of each thumbpad, the Performance Thumbsticks help control thumb movements and increase grip.
Co-developed with Infinity Ward, the Zombies in Spaceland Performance Thumbsticks’ limited-edition packaging highlights sections of the Spaceland theme-park while the thumbsticks themselves feature Angry Mike, one of the alien mascots from the “Octonian Village”, the alien-themed section of the Spaceland theme park.
“We wanted to ‘wow’ our fans with this new product release, and the Zombies in Spaceland thumbsticks simply nails it,” said Ashish Mistry, President and CEO of KontrolFreek. “We knew that pairing the Zombies brand with a high intensity, glow-in-the-dark design would create a unique experience for our customers, which is what they’ve come to expect from KontrolFreek.”
The Zombies in Spaceland Performance Thumbstick was developed in conjunction with Infinity Ward and is the second Call of Duty thumbstick released by KontrolFreek in 2016. Earlier this year, KontrolFreek released KontrolFreek Call of Duty® FPS Freek® S.C.A.R (Special Combat Air Recon) to celebrate the announcement of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The Zombies in Spaceland CQC Performance Thumbsticks for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are available for a limited time. The thumbsticks have a suggested retail price of $17.99 and will be sold exclusively in the U.S. through GameStop PowerUp Rewards, online at KontrolFreek.com and through other international online and retail partners.
