KontrolFreek announced that the FPS Freek brand has received some new analog extenders in the form of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Zombies Spaceland glow-in-the-dark covers. The new extenders are available right now for $17.99 for the Xbox One and the PS4.
The glow-in-the-dark thumbsticks add 6.1mm of extension to the analog sticks while giving gamers a glowing experience when the lights go low.
According to the store page these particular extenders will give you 75% more extension compared to the standard sticks on the Xbox One and PS4.
Ashish Mistry, the president and CEO of KontrolFreek commented about the tie-in accessories saying in the press release…
“We wanted to ‘wow’ our fans with this new product release, and the Zombies in Spaceland thumbsticks simply nails it,”[…] “We knew that pairing the Zombies brand with a high intensity, glow-in-the-dark design would create a unique experience for our customers, which is what they’ve come to expect from KontrolFreek.”
If you notice that the logo on the thumbsticks looks a little different than the usual designs on KontrolFreek sticks, it’s because they’re based on one of the alien mascots called Angry Mike from “Octonian Village”, one of the many locations within the Spaceland amusement park.
KontrolFreek probably would have done better teaming up with EA and DICE for Battlefield 1 themed thumbsticks. This year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hasn’t had the easiest time on the road to release, with most gamers saying they’re willing to pass on this year’s iteration to pick up the World War I themed game from DICE this fall.
Activision and Infinity Ward are attempting to recoil the negative press and impressions by bringing in a 1980s themed zombies pack for Infinite Warfare, and even that wasn’t enough to completely win some people over.
Anyway, whether you actually care about Call of Duty or not, you can use the analog extenders with any game you please, including Battlefield 1. You can learn more about the accessories by visiting the KontrolFreek website.
