Late last month, a leaked image of an official Gears 5-themed Xbox controller leaked online. This image was confirmed as legit today when Microsoft officially announced the controller and a new Gears 5 Xbox One X console.
The new console and controller aren’t the only Gears 5 merchandise on the way, though. Also announced today were a new Gears 5 headset, keyboard, and mouse made by Razer, all due for release in September.
The headset, whose full title is the Razer Thresher for Xbox One: Gears 5 Edition wireless headset, features Windows Sonic for virtual surround sound, lag-free audio, and a digital microphone. It also comes with an in-game Lancer weapon skin.
The keyboard and mouse are officially named the Razer Turret for Xbox One: Gears 5 Edition and Razer Thresher for Xbox One: Gears 5 Edition. The mouse mat is built-in to the keyboard while the mouse itself sports the Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor with 2.4 GHz Wireless Connection with Adaptive Frequency Technology for stable wireless communication with an Xbox One console. The keyboard and mouse will sell together for $299.99.
Also announced today was the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox Gears 5 Special Edition, a 2TB hard drive with USB 3.0 Plug & Play functionality. Each Game Drive will unlock an in-game Lancer weapon skin, supply drops for use in Gears 5, and a one-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership to play Gears 5 in early access four days early.
Gears 5 is the latest video game in the popular Gears franchise. It’s due for release on Xbox One and Windows 10 on September 10th.
