Far Cry 5 will ship with Corsair lighting integration

Your Corsair PC will react to your actions in-game.



Read more about Corsair's Far Cry 5 lighting promotion with Ubisoft.

Corsair actually started doing this some time ago, Same as Razer, Certain games change the colour scheme of your keyboard.

Diablo 3 for example, Highlights only the keys used and flashes the keyboard in a wave of gold when a legendary drops so if you miss it on screen your keyboard lets you know.

I thought for something like that it was a cool little feature.

Ssssshhhhhh, this is awesome!

Logitech does that as well with the G910 keyboard and G633 headset; maybe more products, but those are the ones I have/had.

In GTAV the color changes depending on the character you're playing and the F-keys blink in red/blue when you're chased by the police.

In Killing Floor 2, the color changes to a deep red that turns grey while Zedtime is active or green when you're healed and when you press ready up before a match.

Not sure if Logitech's the force behind that or if the devs simply say "hey, let's include that!", but I like it. It's unnecessary, but still cool.

Alienware have been doing this for the past 12 years lol. Ever since they had active lighting.

Unfortunately very few games work with it.

Same thing on my Roccat Ryos and AIMO, some games support lighting effects and others don't. Like dicehunter I like the effects you get on diablo and the way it behaves in GTA too. Its good that corsair have finally caught up though, the more Manu's that support these features the more common place it'll become.

haha you don't even want to know the aggro it caused me !!

When I got my 2008 AW in 2012 I thought it was busted. Every time I loaded up Metro LL the lights went this odd white/purple colour. I thought there was something wrong with the lighting, so I did all kinds of tests and diagnostics etc. I ended up pulling out the entire control board (not an easy feat) and deduced there must be something wrong with it somewhere. A short, possibly a lack of power when the PSU is under load.

It would take me nearly another two years to realise that it was actually supposed to be doing that, FFS. I only really clocked on when Dying Light came out and I noticed my case would flash red when I fell from too high a place or flash green when I had zombies on my tail or white when it was night time and I put the flashlight on.

And it is cool. Very cool. Especially if you are playing in the dark with headphones on it adds some serious ambience.

All I want is an application or stand alone controller that can take an average from all the pixels being displayed and produce that colour in real time. Bit like Phillips Ambilight.
