Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
KontrolFreek, creators of the acclaimed FPS Freek® and other performance gaming accessories, today announced a collaboration with Activision that will bring to market new KontrolFreek products that are officially licensed by Activision for its critically-acclaimed franchise, Call of Duty®.
KontrolFreek will collaborate with Activision to create several new Call of Duty products throughout the year. The first product will be a “Championship Edition” that will be released in conjunction with the Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox, taking place March 27 – 29 in Los Angeles.
“This partnership brings together two revered gaming brands who share a passion for the Call of Duty franchise and competitive gaming,” said Ashish Mistry, President and CEO of KontrolFreek. “This is a win for fans who also share this passion and will let players get even greater performance in a game they love, using KontrolFreek products designed specifically for the Call of Duty experience.”
The third annual Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox, will play host to 32 of the best Call of Duty teams from around the world, as they compete for the rights to be called the Call of Duty "World Champions," and claim the lion's share of the tournament's $1 million prize.
In honor of the Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox, the KontrolFreek "Championship Edition" analog thumbstick extender will be available for purchase exclusively on-site during the tournament, on Activision's website (https://www.callofduty.com/) and at KontrolFreek.com. The collector’s edition Xbox One thumbstick will be available for a limited time and in limited quantities.
To celebrate the collaboration and upcoming new products, today KontrolFreek is also kicking-off a Call of Duty Championship, presented by Xbox VIP Experience sweepstakes. The lucky grand prize winner will win exclusive, all-expenses paid VIP experience for two to the world finals in Los Angeles. The winner will receive VIP badges and an array of exclusive swag.
