Razer, the world?s leading manufacturer of high-end gaming and lifestyle peripherals and Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises and leading technologies, today announced an unprecedented partnership to usher the first person shooter (FPS) genre to the next stage of radical gaming evolution.

The debut title ? ?HellRazer?, will be a co-op squad based tactical FPS game that will be distributed through the Steam network. Legendary game developer Gabe Newell will lead software development, while Razer will dedicate its time to design and create an intuitive game controller in its new research laboratories in Singapore. The new peripheral is slated to be the first true 1:1 motion sensing and gesture recognition controller.

Razer is extending its vision by partnering up with Valve on this exciting new collaborative project. For the first time, PC gamers will be able to experience a more integrated, immersive gameplay in a first-person shooter game, said Razer president Robert ?Razerguy? Krakoff.

Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve, said We envision great possibilities for this project. Having a dedicated game controller for this game would help heighten the entire gaming experience and be a solid benchmark for future titles.

HellRazer: Triple Helix ? The Game]
HellRazer is a squad-based tactical first person shooter set on a modern day biogenetic research lab, Onyx Rift. Gamers are thrust into the middle of a level 4 biohazard zone when the lab?s centralized supercomputer goes haywire and damaged a viral research containment wing. The explosion released the deadly triple helix S.N.A.K.E. virus upon the lab?s unsuspecting work force, turning them into aggressive beings which need to kill other beings in order to survive.

Players need to reach and repair the supercomputer before the military enforce a full containment to quarantine the outbreak. Work alongside colleagues against the infected to regain control of the lab before a tactical nuke destroys the entire facility.

Razer Anaconda Game Controller
Razer Anaconda is the first motion sensing and gesture recognition controller specifically designed for HellRazer: Triple Helix. The dedicated controller is able to capture true 1:1 movement making the motion sensitivity more intuitive. Razer Anaconda is designed and engineered from ground up to revolutionize and influence not only how games will be played, but how games will be designed.
