Razer and Bioware prepare you for battle in Dragon Age II

by: Russell -
If you're like me you like to wonder around PC stores or the PC department of a major retailer and just take in all they have to offer that you probably can't afford.  More to the point though I'm sure while wondering around you've seen things like gaming mice and keyboards, especially those geared towards World of Warcraft.  Well, now we'll have accessories and such for Dragon Age II.  I've never played the original and haven't had a chance to play the demo of Dragon Age II, but I was never one to get special accessories like mice and keyboards specifically geared towards a particular game.  Then again if you're someone who does then check out the official press release below for more info on Razer's and Bioware's Dragon Age II Collector's Edition Product Line. 

RAZER AND BIOWARE PREPARE YOU

Every Razer product in the Dragon Age II line is a highly aesthetic collector’s edition befitting of the game – from the Razer DeathAdder embossed with a fearsome red dragon to the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate’s exclusive blood-red LED backlighting. The Razer Goliathus and Messenger Bag both carry a design of Hawke battling Darkspawn while the Razer Onza Tournament Edition has an etching of Hawke striding forth fearlessly.
 
Also included with all Dragon Age II Razer products (except the Messenger Bag) is a DLC in-game item “The Ring of Whispers” to further strengthen your champion for the coming battles.
