Turtle Beach and MW3 Unite to Conceive Babies in Your Eardrum
What person do you know that hasn’t heard of Modern Warfare 3? Even my mother, who is oblivious to 99.9% of the world in gaming, knows of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This is also the same woman who asked me after my most recent trip to E3 2011, “Who was it that I interview first, Mario or Luigi?” Honest, it is true.
What is also true might be astonishing to some. Gasp! More MW themed accessories and hardware?! Yes. Turtle Beach will be giving us tid bits of information on the daily about their newest edition to their series of headsets. Starting today, fans of the infamous FPS and those of Turtle Beach can visit the official site for daily updates at 1:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time. Here is the beauty in the breakdown:
Tuesday Aug 9 – Ear Force FOXTROT
Wednesday Aug 10 – Ear Force CHARLIE
Thursday Aug 11 – Ear Force BRAVO
Friday Aug 12 – Ear Force DELTA
Even if you don’t like the way they do business, or Bobby Kotick himself, you have to admit that they sure as hell know how to market and build a brand around a franchise.
Check out some of the exclusive features you can expect to see from the limited edition headsets:
The Ear Force DELTA headset ships with custom voice prompts by Lt. Col. Hank Keirsey (ret.). Army Ranger, master parachutist and decorated combat veteran, Keirsey served 24 years with the US Army and now serves as the principal military advisor for Call of Duty®. It’s his voice that will lead you into battle, and inform you on your preset choices in the field. The Ear Force DELTA and Ear Force BRAVO wireless models feature Turtle Beach’s proprietary DSP headset technology that elevates these headsets beyond mere accessories with the inclusion of custom-designed presets. These settings are specific to Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 and come stored in the headsets right out of the box. Developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer, these presets are tailored to Modern Warfare 3 gameplay, so by utilizing these presets, DELTA and BRAVO owners will hear and experience Modern Warfare 3 the way the developers intended. No other headsets in the world can provide such a complete and immersive Modern Warfare® 3 experience. All of Turtle Beach’s Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 headsets feature special packaging. The wireless DELTA and BRAVO models come packed in rugged hard plastic field cases for transport and storage or to showcase and protect your headset. The stylized design ID will match the military theme of the headsets and it will serve as the perfect carrying case for your headset. Delivering additional value, each package will also include access to special DLC, provided exclusively for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 headsets owners. Specific details about the DLC will be released at a later date.
The full lineup will ship to retailers October 2011.
