SteelSeries unveils the Stratus XL Wireless Gaming Controller for Windows and Android
SteelSeries have yet another announcement coming out of E3: an improved version of the Stratus controller for Windows and Android.
The Stratus XL Wireless Gaming Controller is specifically designed for Windows and Android gaming, so gamers will be able to pair the controller to their PC or Amazon Fire TV, Ouya, Minix and other Android-enabled devices via Bluetooth.
The Stratus XL will work with the majority of games on Steam, which leverages the Microsoft XInput game controller API. With XInput, the Stratus XL will function just like a console-style gaming controller on PC. Supported by the SteelSeries Engine software suite, gamers can personalize the controller, adjust joystick settings and sensitivity levels, and invert the axis.
The Stratus XL mirrors the familiar size and layout of console controllers; it features an 8-way directional pad (D-pad), two high fidelity, clickable analog joysticks, four face buttons and a total of four shoulder buttons, including two top shoulder buttons and two analog triggers. The Stratus XL also features four LEDs for player indicator and battery status level. For added convenience three center buttons allow easy navigation in games and Steam Big Picture Mode. The controller’s Bluetooth connection will allow multiple players to connect to the same wireless system when gaming. Powered by AA batteries, the Stratus XL will deliver an estimated 40 hours of gameplay.
Compatible on multiple platforms and devices paired with thousands of games on the Google Play® Store and on Steam, marks the Stratus XL for Windows & Android as the most versatile wireless gaming controller on the market. With thousands of game titles to choose from, the new The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well as Grand Theft Auto V, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Outlast, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Killing Floor 2, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and ARK: Survival Evolved are just some of the controller-enabled games that when combined with the Stratus XL gamers are in for an incredible experience.
