It’s been a little while since Mad Catz has release peripherals. Now, with the rebirth of Mad Catz Global Limited, an all new line of R.A.T gaming mice will be heading to shelves. The new line will be getting a ton of fine-tuning and additional upgrades as well, all of which can be seen below.
There are four new mice for gamers to put to the test:
Per Press Release:
- R.A.T.4+™ Featuring industry leading OMRON switches with a lifecycle of 20 million clicks, the R.A.T.4+ has been designed to deliver flawless precision. Powerful LEDs provide multi-zone backlighting and the Pixart PMW 3330 optical sensor provides trusted performance that gamers can rely on.
- R.A.T.6+™ Extending the customization options, the R.A.T.6+ features nine programmable buttons and an adjustable palm rest, in addition to a removable weight system that allows gamers to find the ideal weight for their personal preference. Chameleon RGB Intelligent Lighting illuminates the mouse across three separate zones, bathing the R.A.T. with over 16 million lighting combinations, while luxury OMRON switches have been tested to up to 50 million clicks for superior performance.
- R.A.T.8+™ Designed for the professional gamer, the state-of-the-art Pixart PMW 3389 optical sensor delivers unrivalled precision for any gaming genre. Fully customisable, the R.A.T.8+ features an adjustable palm rest and thumb rest, as well as removable pinkie grip. 18G of removable weights enable gamers to perfect the feel of their R.A.T., while the three stage Chameleon RGB lighting keeps the mouse looking as good as it performs. Onboard memory allows gamers to save up to three profiles, allowing for personalized macro button, sensor and lighting settings when travelling to tournaments.
- R.A.T. Pro S3™ Lightweight, ergonomic and unmistakably R.A.T., the PRO S3 concentrates on delivering the essentials professional gamers demand. The powerful Pixart PMW 3330 sensor delivers proven gaming performance, while ultra-reliable OMRON switches have been tested to an impressive 50 million clicks. The palm rest is fully adjustable, tilting plus or minus 15 degrees, side-to-side and extending up to 12mm from the mainframe. The PRO S3 also features Chameleon RGB lighting for stunning visual effects during gaming sessions.
Mad Catz has been a staple in the peripheral department for gaming for a long time, so it’s nice to see them back from their 2017 bankruptcy announcement. No other PC peripheral manufacturer has anything like the R.A.T. line available, and Mad Catz looks to be returning to form with this newest line of mice. We wouldn’t be surprised if we started seeing more of this line in competitive eSports or streamers’ content. This new series will be launching first in the Germany, Austria, and France territories. Europe, North America and other territories will be coming soon after.
