So these Tango Gameworks leaks turned out to be true. After repeatedly stating that this night’s Xbox Developer Direct would characteristic simply 4 games, it turned out to include 4. Hi-Fi Rush is a brand new third-person rhythm motion brawler from the makers of Evil Within and Ghostwhire: Tokyo. It’s a considerable departure from their earlier games by way of model – though there’s a fair greater surprse.
The greater shock is it is out now, so you may play it through Game Pass instantly.
In Hi-Fi Rush, your assaults and combos add layers to the soundtrack. If you battle alongside to the beat, your assaults do extra injury. You use these talents to bash by way of robots in a vibrant, cel-shaded metropolis stuffed with company robots.
There was a prolonged game demonstration on the finish of tonight’s livestream, which you’ll be able to see a part of beneath. Everything within the game strikes to the beat – enemies, cutscenes, environmental obstacles – The thought is that you simply’re rewarded for hitting the beat fairly than punished for lacking it, although.
I like the look of the game. Cel-shared or usually cartoony is a straightforward factor to get fallacious, and to make look flat, however the character and world design right here appears very good. Surpsisingly even the gags labored within the video labored for me, in a Saturday-morning-cartoon sort of means.
If you need to strive it, there is no want to attend. Hi-Fi Rush is offered for PC via the Xbox store for £30, or it is also accessible as a part of PC Game Pass. I at all times hoped somebody would do the “and it is out now” factor.
