The Rival 700 gaming mouse features the first fully customisable OLED display, and also tactile alerts giving real-time information and in-game notifications that you can feel rather than see. With this mouse no two alerts need to be the same, you can choose which in-game events automatically trigger a tactile alert and you have complete control over how each one feels – health, ammo, mana, disables, headshots, and stuns can all be individually set to start a Tactile Alert. Tweak the vibration patterns, duration, triggers to suit you, you might want an alert that feels like a heartbeat when you are low on HP or set an alert to do a quick buzz to let know you’ve got that last hit.
The Tactile Alerts have been carefully placed in the center of your mouse, so you feel the pulse strongly in your palm. By directing the pulse to only move up through your hand, as opposed to left and right, Tactile Alerts will not impact your mouse’s tracking so you can keep your aim perfect.
In order to control all the settings for this beast you’ll need to download the SteelSeries Engine 3 software, once installed you can setup CPI, polling, lift off distance, macros, and OLED screen with just a few clicks – if you’re looking for some GIFs to get you going SteelSeries have a bunch ready for you to check out here 🙂
We’ve put this great new mouse through some extensive GGPC in game testing and it’s very comfortable indeed, this could well be one of the best mice we see in 2016! On that note we happily give this new gaming mouse our GGPC recommends award – The SteelSeries Rival 700 is GOOD!
