PDP recently took the wraps off its long-awaited Riffmaster guitar controller, sparking excitement among many fans of guitar games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. However, with the last games in these franchises dating back almost ten years (2015 to be precise), one might wonder if the launch of this new accessory is not a little late. That said, with the emergence of the Fortnite Festival, one might think that the timing for its introduction to the market couldn’t be more opportune.

The Riffmaster works with Bluetooth pairing and is compatible with Xbox, PlayStation consoles as well as PC. Its battery offers 36 hours of battery life per charge, and is recharged via a USB-C connector.
