MCV takes a look at the best accessories heading to UK retail. This week, we say Halo to a new wireless gaming mouse and check out a killer Assassin’s Creed headset bundle
Limited Edition Halo Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500
While Halo: The Master Chief Collection may not currently be set for release on the PC, fans of the blockbuster sci-fi shooter franchise can continue to display their fondness for Master Chief with this new mouse.
The Limited Edition Halo Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 features an ambidextrous design, and is emblazoned with the Halo logo and an image of the Chief himself.
The mouse utilises Microsoft’s BlueTrack technology, which combines optical and laser tracking to allow consumers to use the mouse on almost any surface, even if that’s rough wood or carpet.
Accompanying the mouse is a micro transceiver, which plugs into a USB port for connection with the mouse and can be stowed in the bottom of the mouse for travel.
Users can continue to use the mouse for up to eight months with a single battery, and can rely on the integrated power indicator to let them know when it’s time to replace it.
The mouse also features an on/off switch to conserve battery power by turning it off when not in use.

Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital Gaming Headset and Assassin’s Creed Unity Bundle
Roccat and Ubisoft have teamed up to offer gamers the chance to score a new gaming headset and the latest Assassin’s Creed game together as part of a bundle.
Consumers can grab the Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Digital gaming headset and a digital download code for the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Unity.
The Kave XTD 5.1 Digital features remastered real 5.1 surround sound, provided by two 40mm driver units and one 30mm vibration unit per ear cup.
The three driver units are aligned specifically at a 12-degree angle, to match the natural form of the human ear. The result of this technology and arrangement is a genuine surround sound experience, rather than a virtual recreation.
The headset also includes a multi-channel sound card, which allows users to pair their smartphone to the headset via Bluetooth.
All of this functionality is contained alongside the headset in a desktop remote, which works as an audio command centre for players.
The headset will allow players to listen to the audio environment of Unity’s French Revolution-era Paris, as the game’s hero Arno sneaks and stabs his way through the city.
Release Date: Out Now
