SteelSeries Announces New Limited-Edition Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Howl Edition Peripherals at FACEIT London 2018

Gaming peripherals company, SteelSeries, has announced a limited-edition line of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) branded peripherals. The new mouse and mousepad will feature a design based on the CS:GO’ renown gun skin, the M4A4 Howl. The mouse and mousepad combo are featured at FACEIT Major: London 2018, the thirteenth CS:GO major championship.

From the announcement press release today:

“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,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “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. We are avid supporters of the competitive scene and are proud to announce our new line at the FACEIT Major in London.”

Branding aside, what about the mouse and pad themselves?  The Rival 310 is a gaming-oriented mouse utilizing the TrustMove 3 sensor, uses a split-trigger button design and mulit-color Prism RGB illumination compatible with SteelSeries Engine software. The Howl Edition of the Rival 310 shares the similar specs of the original mouse’s specs.

The Rival 310 is a mouse made for unparalleled accuracy due to the power of the SteelSeries exclusive TrueMove3 sensor. The Rival 310 Howl Edition takes advantage of the Rival 310’s high performance while sporting the legendary design of CS:GO’s most infamous gun skin. The mouse uses a split-trigger button design and mulit-color Prism RGB illumination compatible with SteelSeries Engine software. The Rival 310 Howl Edition is available in North America for $69.99, in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for €79.99, and in the Pacific for $79.99.

The QcK+ Limited Howl Edition mousepad features a similar visual design used in the Rival 310 Howl Edition mouse. The 450mm x 400mm x 3mm mousepad is made of a hi9gh thread count micro-woven cloth, with mouse glide, tracking accuracy and minimized friction in mind. The mousepad also uses a non-slip base and never-fray stitching, ensuring the surface will never fray or peel. The QcK+ Limited Howl Edition is available in North America for $29.99, in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for €34.99 and in the Pacific for $34.99.

The mouse and mousepad can be seen in action in Section N at the event (and perhaps on stream). In the meantime, scope out this still frame of the mouse and pad in the hand of a demonstrator.
