Game developer BioWare has announced it has teamed up with hardware manufacturer Razer to produce licensed peripherals for Mass Effect 3.

All-out galactic war returns for the third instalment of the hit franchise, which will reach stores in early March.

To celebrate this event and give gamers the full Mass Effect experience, a branded gaming mouse, mouse mat and gaming keyboard have been developed, along with a dedicated controller and headset for the Xbox 360.

Robert Krakoff, president of Razer USA, says the peripherals are "cutting-edge", giving users a distinct advantage when they play the game.

"BioWare is pulling out all of the stops for Mass Effect 3 to ensure it's the best and boldest game in the series," he explained.

"With our official line of peripherals and gear for Mass Effect 3, we're giving fans the best gaming weaponry and hardware to meet the challenge head on – and come out victorious."

The gaming mouse utilises a 6400dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, and has been ergonomically designed with rubberised grips for better control, adjustable side buttons and zero-acoustic ultraslick mouse feet.

Seven independently programmable hyperesponse buttons have also been added, making this an effective as well as comfortable mouse - although it has been designed for right-handed players.

BioWare marketing director David Silverman says the agreement is part of the firm's wider plan to make Mass Effect 3 a "truly epic experience".

"Mass Effect 3 is an all-out galactic war and partnering with Razer gives us an opportunity to raise the stakes even higher and provide gamers with a product line that will certainly help them take Earth back on March 6th," he added.

BioWare's Nick Clifford recently revealed that the company made something of an error with Mass Effect 2, neglecting to make it as accessible to new players as it could have been.

He confirmed that this mistake has been rectified with the third instalment.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801296325-ADNFCR
