A few days after the introduction of the Atheris gaming mouse, Razer has added a new peripheral to its gaming line-up. The company introduced the Wolverine Ultimate gaming controller, compatible with Xbox One and Windows PC.
The controller comes with two interchangeable directional pads that make it easily adaptive to any gameplay style, and thumbsticks of varying height and shape. The re-mappable triggers and buttons can be customized on-the-fly. The Wolverine Ultimate supports the Razer Chroma Illumination platform and players can choose between 16.8 million color options. All customization tweaks are made via the Razer Synapse software.
According to Razer’s announcement, the Wolverine Ultimate controller is the first console product that supports the Razer Chroma SDK, which allows the integration of advanced lighting capabilities for Xbox One games.
The Wolverine Ultimate is a corded controller that possesses four extra buttons on the bottom (M3 to M6), as well as two buttons between the trigger sets (M1 and M2). The controller also has dedicated buttons for muting the sound, muting the microphone, profile synchronization and button commands remapping. The hair-trigger mode reduces the response time of the left and right triggers. The trigger stop switches shorten the overall travel distance. The device has non-slip rubber grips and ships with a carrying case.
The Wolverine Ultimate is considered the worthy successor of the Wildcat controller for Xbox One, but the new controller is a bit different in terms of design. It also features a few more buttons. Razer has improved the ergonomics to ensure players’ comfort during long gaming marathons.
The Razer Wolverine Ultimate will be released in North America in September. Its international launch is planned for Q4 2017. The controller arrives at a retail price of $160.
