Twain Harte, CA – October 15, 2012 – Reverb Publishing today announced it is partnering with Andrea Electronics Corporation (OTCBB: ANDR-NEWS) as the exclusive branded headset for Ravaged , the highly anticipated online first-person shooter created by veteran developers 2 Dawn Games, launching October 17, 2012 for PC.
Gamers who pre-order the Andrea Electronics SuperBeam SB-805B Ravaged-branded headset will receive a special 20 percent discount off the retail price. The SuperBeam SB-805B headset is available alone (MSRP $179.95, Discounted to $143.95) or as part of the Ravaged Game Bundle (MSRP $199.95, Discounted to $159.95) and can be purchased through the Andrea Electronics SuperBeam Website ( www.SuperBeam3D.com).
Andrea’s SuperBeam Ravaged -branded computer headsets – with adaptive beam forming software – received the 2012 CES Innovation Award accolade. By integrating a microphone into each earpiece to create a stereo array, Andrea Electronics has eliminated the need for a standard boom microphone for voice communications. This “boom-free” design looks more natural and provides a better user experience than traditional single element boom mics, which are known for the annoyance of inconsistent sound output when improperly positioned.
“We’re excited to partner with the folks at Andrea Electronics because they help create the perfect audio gaming package for Ravaged,” said Brian Harvey, director of strategic partnerships for Reverb Publishing. “With Andrea Electronics boom-free mic, gamers are going to love hearing all the excuses for people getting fragged in detailed clarity without any background noise!”
The SuperBeam “CANS” work with Andrea’s patented Adaptive Beam Forming technology to focus on the user’s voice while cancelling background noise for enhanced intelligibility when making VoIP calls, video chatting, multiplayer gaming or using speech recognition software. The headset also comes bundled with a dedicated in-line USB sound card to ensure superior audio performance and computer compatibility.
“The SB-805 headset was designed to give hard core Ravaged computer gamers the unique feature of embedded stereo microphones, providing clear voice pickup in a premier top of the line headset and with beam forming digital noise canceling technology that will allow users to have more freedom to eat and drink while game chatting,” said Douglas Andrea, President of Andrea Electronics Corporation. “The ear cups are also loaded with 50mm speakers that deliver powerful bass, clear midrange and sparking highs for a high definition game sound experience.”
Ravaged is a 32-player, first-person online multiplayer shooter designed specifically for the PC and due out October 17, 2012. Created by 2 Dawn Games, a veteran developer formed by team members who previously worked on Desert Combat, Battlefield 2, and Frontlines, Ravaged is aimed at delivering on-foot and vehicle-based combat. Featuring five classes, clan support, dedicated servers, and anti-cheating methods, Ravaged provides endless value at the accessible price of $24.99.
