One of the world’s leading gaming audio manufacturers, Turtle Beach, have revealed plans for expanding the company’s portfolio of gaming headsets with a focus on the PC market. Designed in collaboration with leading eSports teams, including Astralis, OpTic Gaming, and the Houston Outlaws, Turtle Beach’s Atlas line is built for PC gamers and features three different models – the Elite Atlas Pro Performance Gaming Headset, the Atlas Three Amplified PC Gaming Headset, and the Atlas One PC Gaming Headset.
Each Atlas product offers players a plethora of features, functionality and pricing, starting with the Elite Atlas with a MSRP of £89.99 and the Atlas Three and Atlas One with MSRPs of £69.99 and £39.99, respectively. All three Atlas gaming headsets are available for pre-order at participating retailers starting today and are planned to launch at the end of September 2018.
“Turtle Beach is a leading gaming audio brand because we constantly innovate to design high-quality headsets with features that gamers want, so we’re clearly excited to extend our portfolio with the Atlas products for PC gamers,”
said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation.
“This expansion is a great move for us because in addition to our already strong performance in console gaming headsets, we’ll now have the ability to attract both dedicated and cross-platform PC gamers through our new Atlas lineup.”
“When we set out on the path to grow our presence in PC, it included conducting consumer research and working with our partners on key design elements, resulting in what we believe is a great first assortment of PC headsets. Each Atlas headset – whether at the £40, £70, or £90 price point – offers PC gamers the audio performance and comfort Turtle Beach is known for. Moving forward we intend to leverage our technology, innovation, and best practices, to continue leading the console gaming headset business through our Recon, Stealth and Elite products, with equal focus and energy behind our new Atlas line that’s built for PC gamers.”
Additionally, fans attending gamescom, PAX West and Dreamhack Montreal will have the opportunity to be some of the first gamers in the world to try out the Elite Atlas before it hits retail shelves. Gamescom opens its doors August 21st-25th, 2018 in Cologne, Germany, and PAX West takes place August 31st–September 3rd, 2018 in Seattle, Washington where Turtle Beach will have a booth where players can go head-to-head playing the latest games using Turtle Beach’s latest gear.
