RAZER ANNOUNCES THE OP MOBA MOUSE, NAGA HEX V2
Latest evolution in the storied Naga mouse line includes a new thumb wheel that is designed for popular MOBA titles such as League of Legends, Dota 2 and Heroes of the Storm
For Release on June 14, 2016:
LOS ANGELES (E3 2016) – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced its latest gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Hex V2.
Designed for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games, the Razer Naga Hex V2 buffs it to an OP level, with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel optimized for MOBA gaming and pre-configured MOBA profiles for maximum in-game efficiency.
“This gaming mouse will help MOBA gamers achieve a better balance between keyboard and mouse commands, allowing you to react better to different situations,” says Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, mid-laner for Team SKT’s professional “League of Legends” team. “The placement of those extra buttons gives you accuracy without the worry of mis-clicking.”
The world’s most advanced mouse technology powers the Razer Naga Hex V2. A 5G, true 16,000 DPI laser sensor ensures that movements across any display setup register precisely, whether it is a multi-monitor battle station or a 4k screen.
“The MOBA scene has become the most watched genre of eSports in the world, making games like League of Legends and Dota 2 more popular in terms of audience than many professional sports leagues,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We made the first mouse that was ever designed for these players and we’re happy to have improved upon an already great design.”
The Razer Naga Hex V2 follows Razer’s initial foray into mice designed specifically for MOBA players. Inventors of the original gaming mouse in 1998, Razer’s interest in advancing gaming has led to the company making mice specifically designed for MMO, mobile, ambidextrous and even left-handed gameplay.
Razer’s latest mouse will also exploit Powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices. Gamers can pick and choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created on the Razer Synapse software platform and shared with millions of other Razer software users via the Razer Chroma Workshop. In-game Razer Chroma lighting profiles are also integrated into popular game titles, including “Overwatch”, “Call of Duty®: Black Ops III”, “Blade and Soul” and more. These profiles can display tutorials, in-game actions and more.
