KONTROLFREEK® DEPLOYS NEW FPS FREEK® CALL OF DUTY®: HERITAGE EDITION PERFORMANCE THUMBSTICK SET
Company Releases New Gaming Accessories Inspired by Activision’s Upcoming Call of Duty®: WWII
ATLANTA (April 27, 2017) – KontrolFreek® today announced the FPS Freek® Call of Duty®: Heritage Edition Performance Thumbstick set. Designed in collaboration with Activision to complement the gritty and intense boots-on-the-ground action in Call of Duty®: WWII, CoD: Heritage Edition features a rugged Army-green color and is laser-etched with an evocative World War II design. The new Performance Thumbstick set is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at KontrolFreek.com and through select global retailers like GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon.com.
CoD: Heritage Edition is available now and features two different thumbstick heights to maximize comfort and accuracy, no matter which game mode players are engaged in:
- The concave high-rise FPS hybrid thumbstick (10.10mm PS4/10.40mm XB1) increases range of motion by 134.8 percent on PlayStation 4 and 117.6 percent on Xbox One, and is designed to improve accuracy when using the right analog stick.
- The concave mid-rise thumbstick (6.27mm PS4/5.71mm XB1) provides extra grip and comfort on the left analog stick.
- The combination creates the perfect in-combat combination of grip, control and precision.
“Call of Duty®: WWII is poised to become the definitive next-generation WWII gaming experience when it releases later this year,” said Dana Thomas, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development at KontrolFreek. “And from the moment we saw this title, we knew exactly what we wanted to do with our newest Performance Thumbstick. With FPS Freek Call of Duty: Heritage Edition, we’re simultaneously honoring the roots of the series while celebrating the latest in the series, making these the ultimate thumbsticks for fans of the Call of Duty franchise.”
To celebrate the launch of CoD: Heritage Edition, KontrolFreek enlisted the help of top YouTubers Ali-A and TmarTn to host Tank Wars – an interactive real-world contest that will see the two influencers battle it out in a series of WWII-themed activities ranging from driving a tank and crushing cars to shooting machine guns. From now through May 10, fans can enter for the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the Tank Wars event, meet with Ali-A and TmarTn, and partner with one of them to participate in the battles.
Activision’s Call of Duty®: WWII is scheduled for release on Nov. 3. The title delivers the gritty realism, authenticity and cinematic intensity of Call of Duty on an epic scale.
