Razer has teamed up with Ubisoft to release a new version of its popular Blackshark V2 Pro headset. This isn’t Razer’s first collaboration with a franchise to make branded peripherals. And it won’t be the last.
Previous product releases have seen Razer make keyboards, mice, and other headsets that are themed after games like Cyberpunk 2077, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call Of Duty and more. This time around though Razer is targeting Rainbow Six Siege fans.
Officially called the Razer Blackshark V2 Pro – Six Siege Special Edition, the headset features various design elements that pay homage to the game. From orange-colored accent stitching to the Siege branding adorned on a white and black surface.
Razer and Ubisoft begin selling the new Blackshark V2 Pro today
If you’re crazy about Rainbow Six Siege and want to show it in as many ways as possible, you can grab this headset starting today. Razer says it’s available directly from its own website right now.
There are no new features or functional differences with this version of the headset. In fact it’s identical in that respect to the original Blackshark V2 Pro that Razer launched last year. The only differences are the design, and the price.
While the standard Black version of the Blackshark V2 Pro retails for $180, the Six Siege Special Edition model retails for $200. So you’re paying a slight premium to get the themed version. If that doesn’t bother you, Razer has the headset in stock and is shipping immediately.
You’ll be able to buy the headset from Razer’s retail partners eventually too. Though the company says that it won’t be available at other retailers until sometime in July. It should also be available from its own Razer Stores at that time.
Razer doesn’t mention which retailers will pick up the headset, but you can routinely find the company’s products on Amazon and at Best Buy. So expect to see the new headset from at least one of those two.
This new headset is one of a few new products that Razer revealed this week. On June 13 it unveiled the return of the Blade 14 laptop powered by AMD processors. It also unveiled a new version of the Raptor 27 monitor, and a new GaN charger.
