To help gamers achieve peak performance and live the full experience right at the heart of the game and of its world, Thrustmaster is thrilled to announce that it is launching a line of three Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon® Wildlands-licensed gaming headsets – including a very highly-anticipated worldwide exclusive model! With these new headsets, gamers will feel completely immersed in Ubisoft’s largest open world action-adventure shooter.
High-performance headsets, true to the game’s audio signature
In some sensitive situations – like when a team of four Ghosts, an elite unit of the U.S. Army, is stealthily carrying out high-risk missions in the rugged terrain of Bolivia – mastery of both speech and hearing takes on life-or-death importance. With its groundbreaking new headsets, Thrustmaster is taking these senses to a whole new level, allowing gamers to optimize their exchanges with team members: this results in crystal-clear intrasquad communication, and the ability to hear even the slightest sounds from far away, so as to be able to best anticipate and respond to whatever their hostile environments might throw at them. To achieve this, these headsets have been designed to reflect the game’s audio signature with pinpoint accuracy, using the Thrustmaster development teams’ own in-house, state-of-the-art anechoic chamber (shown opposite).
Two 7.1 Virtual Surround-equipped headsets, including a major world first
The two flagship models of this range are the Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition and the Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition: both feature a 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound audio system via the Y Sound Commander controller. The Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition is officially licensed for Xbox One®. The Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition, for PlayStation®4, is a worldwide exclusive with the Y Sound Commander, marking the first use of this award-winning technology on this platform. Both of these headsets plunge gamers into the vast expanses of the Bolivian wildlands in truly breathtaking fashion.
Plus, a super-versatile universal headset
In order to meet the needs of a wider cross-section of gamers, Thrustmaster will also be offering a GHOST RECON WILDLANDS edition of its best-selling Y-300CPX model: a multiplatform headset, for full compatibility with PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 systems, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360® and Mac®.
•Thrustmaster’s range of Ghost Recon Wildlands gaming headsets will be available from March 7, 2017 at suggested retail prices of £49.99 for the Y-300CPX GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (multiplatform), and £119.99 for the Y-350X 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (Xbox One®) and the Y-350P 7.1 Powered GHOST RECON WILDLANDS Edition (PlayStation®4).
