The Vulcan II keeps the series’ award-winning design, with the brand’s signature sleek, low-profile ID, premium aluminum top plate, and beautiful AIMO RGB lighting powered by ROCCAT’s Swarm software suite. It also includes key features like ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+]™ button duplicator technology, full NKRO (n-key rollover), and anti-ghosting technology to ensure every keystroke and combination of key presses register as intended. The Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard launches July 19, 2023, and fans can pre-order now at www.roccat.com and participating retailers in select territories. The Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is available for $149.99 MSRP (€159.99).
“ROCCAT’s Vulcan 120 series keyboards are synonymous with impeccable quality, top performance, and premium design elements, and the new Vulcan II pushes these areas further to create yet another full-size PC gaming keyboard unrivalled in its class,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “Since the original Vulcan keyboard debuted at Computex 2018, the series has earned countless editorial accolades and design awards, and has been a best-selling keyboard in Germany in 2022/2023. We expect these trends to continue with the Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, as evidenced in the extremely strong reception to the Vulcan II Max and Mini optical keyboards that launched late last year.”
The Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard joins its Vuclan II Max and Vulcan II Mini optical keyboard siblings, both of which have received high praise from fans and reviewers alike. Noted as one of the most beautiful gaming keyboards on the market, IGN added the Vulcan II Max to its best gaming keyboards list (Best Mechanical Gaming Keyboard), as did Tom’s Hardware (Best Looking Gaming Keyboard), PCMag (Best RGB Gaming Keyboard), and CGMagOnline (Best Keyboard 2023). RTINGS noted, “The ROCCAT Vulcan II [Max & Mini] keyboards are outstanding for gaming,” while TechRadar gave the Mini a 4.5/5 review score. Additionally, consumer reviews on Best Buy show a 5/5 rating, along with a 4.7/5 rating on Amazon.
ROCCAT’s new Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is the first to debut the brand’s redesigned TITAN II Mechanical Switches and offers two options. TITAN II Red/Linear switches have a smooth actuation with minimal resistance making them ideal for competitive gaming, while TITAN II Brown/Tactile switches have a gentle bump mid-press for those who appreciate light feedback. The Vulcan II keys are compatible with many third-party cross-shaped mount keycaps so PC gamers can further personalize the look of their keyboard. ROCCAT’s Swarm software and AIMO lighting lets gamers further customize their setup to enjoy a vivid and immersive RGB lighting experience with 16.8 million color options. AIMO lighting technology also allows the Vulcan II to sync with other AIMO-enabled ROCCAT peripherals to create a stunning desktop PC gaming station.
Providing additional comfort and support during long gaming sessions, the Vulcan II comes with a detachable cushioned wrist rest. Its anodized aluminum top plate reinforces the keyboard’s structural integrity, helps protect against wear and tear, and adds to the Vulcan II’s premium and stunning aesthetic. The Vulcan II also comes equipped with a full set of media keys and a push-to-mute volume knob, and 4MB onboard memory to save four profiles of custom lighting, key reassignment, and more. ROCCAT’s Vulcan II Mechanical Gaming Keyboard comes in Ash Black or Arctic White.
