SAN DIEGO, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ROCCAT, Turtle Beach's (NASDAQ:HEAR) Hamburg, Germany-based PC brand today announced the renewal of its partnership with Martin "MrSavage" Foss Andersen. MrSavage has been a dedicated advocate of ROCCAT peripherals for the past year, and recently achieved his championship Fortnite victory at Dreamhack Anaheim using ROCCAT's acclaimed Kone Pure Ultra lightweight mouse and Vulcan 122 mechanical gaming keyboard.

"We're extremely happy to be continuing our partnership with MrSavage as he represents a fresh wave of gamers who are relentlessly dedicated to their performance and continually looking to excel," said René Korte, General Manager for PC Products at Turtle Beach. "MrSavage has already given us great insights on what he, as a professional gamer, expects from his equipment and we're delighted to be his first choice for PC accessories."

At just 15 years old MrSavage is already one of the most successful Fortnite players in the world, and recently joined the highly regarded ranks of the 100 Thieves Fornite roster. His stream reaches over a million users worldwide and has over 73 million total views on his popular YouTube channel.

"I have used ROCCAT peripherals ever since I started gaming, so it was a natural choice for me to extend our partnership," said MrSavage. "I look forward to working with the ROCCAT team to further explore new products and improvements for the professional esports scene. High-quality gameplay requires high-quality products, and ROCCAT gives me a competitive advantage."

MrSavage is exclusively using ROCCAT PC accessories which include headsets, mice, keyboards, and mousepads. His personal setup includes a full Arctic White line-up featuring the Kone Pure Ultra White, the Vulcan 122 – the Arctic White variant of ROCCAT's acclaimed Vulcan 120 keyboard (WIRED Best Gaming Keyboard 2019, iF Design Awards 2019), as well as the Khan AIMO White headset. Additionally, ROCCAT and MrSavage will work together on future product development as the young Norwegian player shares insights on the evolving needs of professional esports players.
