Let’s say you have a gaming keyboard complete with mechanical key switches, customizable backlighting and programmable macro buttons. What more could possibly be added to enhance the fragging experience?
How about a keyboard LED indicator that displays your current health or indicates when you landed a headshot? SteelSeries is making that a reality when you pair their new “Gamesense” software with any of their compatible keyboards. It’s a feature already built in to SteelSeries Engine version 3.4.0, so it’s ready to try out right now.
Check out the video below to see Gamesense in action!
Now for the fine print: Gamesense is compatible with all of the RGB illuminated products supported by SteelSeries Engine 3. In order for the best experience, however, SteelSeries recommends using it with an Apex M800 keyboard.
Currently, only two games support Gamesense out of the box – CS:GO and Minecraft. However, if you’re good at coding you can program Gamesense to do just about anything you want. Just write some code in SteelSeries’ embedded language GoLisp, and amaze your friends with the cool stuff you can make your keyboard do!
SteelSeries is also making it simple for devs to add support for GameSense, so we should see more games added in the future.
What are your thoughts on Gamesense? Is it something you would use? If so, what games would you like to see supported?
