At E3 2014 we introduced the world to the ROCCAT Sova Gaming Board prototype, a wireless, modular keyboard/mousepad combo expertly designed to help PC gamers own the couch, without having to give up their favorite gaming tools.
The wildly enthusiastic feedback we received confirmed what we already knew; that the Sova was the Future Ready gaming peripheral the world had been waiting for. It was time to get to work. During the months since our prototype debut, peripherals that appear similar to Sova on the surface have arrived on the world stage, but we continued taking our time, and weren’t worried.
The weight of Sova in your lap, the high-quality materials it’s made of, all designed for the perfect gaming board feel. That feel has to be perfect. Five hours of play should feel as good as five minutes. There are other options out there right now. They will not be Sova. Our ergonomics are on point. Our comfort is ideal. We solved the issue of heavy metal parts with advanced, durable fiber-improved plastics with the stability of metal without the unnecessary weight. That’s just one advance in the Sova design.
A Sova is designed with your ideal PC setup in mind. Make your smartphone a Sova-integrated command center for a greater tactical edge, and the perfect way to integrate social gaming into your living room setup. How? Like no other gaming board offering, Sova brings the power of software to your fingertips. ROCCAT Swarm running on your PC and smartphone will give you lightning-fast access to system commands, vital game functions and so much more. Gaming in the living room with Sova means never giving up the edge, and getting more than you ever knew you could have owning the couch.
Many of you were highly vocal about a quality wired Sova option. Some gamers simply don’t want to bother with charging batteries. So, we’re bringing that wired Sova option to you, featuring either rubberdome or mechanical keys at slightly different price points, each with a USB cable for connecting to your PC or Steam machine.
We listened, we’re giving gamers what they want. But what does that mean for wireless?
The retail wireless Sova will be superior to the prototype in every way. Long-life batteries for long gaming sessions are a must; ensuring we provide the standard in a wireless gaming board our top priority. The wireless Sova will come equipped with mechanical keys, deep customization and a battery custom made for the effortless extended play our fans deserve.
All Sovas are built with ROCCAT’s deep commitment to quality and Future Ready design.
Sova will make its retail debut Q1 of 2016, and will retail at 149.00 USD.
