Razer has released a new controller compatible for the Xbox Series X|S and it's looking to give the Elite controller a run for its money.
The Razer Wolverine V2 may be a wired controller, but the store listing suggests it comes with a load of nifty features that Xbox owners are undoubtedly going to want to try out. Not only that, but it also works for Xbox One and PC, ensuring it's compatible across the Xbox family.
Rubber grips are placed to support every palm and have a smoother L-shaped style to maximise comfort. The buttons also inherit Razer's Mecha Tactile action buttons and d-pad, to create "crisp tactile feedback":
"Equipped with a 3-million tap life cycle for greater durability and a reduced actuation distance of 0.65mm—35% less than that of the average membrane controller—each button is finely tuned for greater accuracy to showcase your true gaming potential."
Extra buttons reside on the controller, specifically the triggers, to create more styles of play and ensure owners can customise the experience to their style:
"The Wolverine V2 comes loaded with additional buttons for advanced gaming—2 multi-function buttons at the front of the controller can be remapped via Razer™ Controller Setup for Xbox to unleash greater control and a more personalized play style."
A Hair Trigger Mode via two slide-locks also resides on the underside of the controller to reduce the distance to the triggers, and the controller also supports audio devices with a 3.5mm cable.
For those who really want to delve into the specifics, the controller buttons can be remapped, including the sensitivity on components such as the thumbsticks. Overall, it looks like a great substitute for the expensive Xbox Elite Controller and offers a lot of the same features on paper. It's available now for £99.99 / $99.99.
