With every big PC game release, Razer releases a branded peripheral line-up. With the upcoming release of Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Razer announced that it is re-releasing its peripheral lineup for the expansion. That means you're getting the Razer Spectre StarCraft 2 Gaming Mouse, the Razer Marauder StarCraft 2 Gaming Keyboard and the Razer Banshee StarCraft 2 Gaming Headset -- all designed specifically for one of the best RTS games ever made.

The peripherals feature custom-backlighting through an APM (Actions-Per-Minute) Lighting System. It offers a fully integrated experience that responds to a player's maneuvers and speed. Each of the peripherals are also designed with elements from the StarCraft universe.
