Roccat Nyth Modular MMO Mouse Review


ROCCAT’s ambitious MMO-hybrid gaming mouse is here. With its completely hot-swappable side button grid, the ROCCAT Nyth represents a new standard in gaming gear customization. The Nyth adapts to the individual preferences of every gamer, regardless of genre. With loads of out-of-box configurations, the Nyth is a modular marvel with unlimited combinations tailored to gamer specificity. In its out of the box configuration the Nyth offers 36.738 different combinations using 33 buttons, plus side-grips “We’ve loved cracking the challenge of the Nyth,” says René Korte, founder and CEO of ROCCAT Studios. “Making a mouse so deeply customizable was a great test for our creative and design teams. What we ended up with was not only a one of a kind MMO-centric piece of gaming equipment, but a mouse that is a chameleon. Turn it into a MOBA mouse, an FPS weapon, and more; any gaming configuration for any genre you can think of. That’s what the Nyth brings to the table.”

Nyth provides massive out-of-box customization options for the average gamer, to the competitive pro. However, ROCCAT wanted to create even more extendibility, and this is where 3D printing came into play. Soon after Gamescom ’15, ROCCAT will launch an online 3D printing library with enormous button theme variety, tons of ergonomic options and additional special parts to individualize your Nyth. The “Build your victory,” philosophy behind Nyth is baked into the core of this amazing gaming mouse, where every individual gets to decide exactly how they want to give themselves the perfect edge. Says René,” Each Nyth is like a fingerprint. No two will be exactly alike; every gamer will have their own unique, custom gaming tool to play with.”

With the Nyth, ROCCAT launches Swarm, their new unified driver software. One software suite for all products, a new multi-language UI and a mobile companion app makes Swarm today’s most sophisticated driver, further defining ROCCAT’s future ready philosophy.
