After several years of collaboration, Avicii and Hello There Games released Invector for PS4 in 2017. Though the notable musician passed away on April 20, 2018, Wired Productions, Hello There Games and Avicii Music are releasing an updated version of the game, its title lengthened to Avicii Invector, for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The updated PS4 version will arrive sometime this Winter, while the other versions do not currently have a release date.
As I mentioned, Avicii Invector was crafted in collaboration with the titular artist prior to his death. Even after his passing, Avicii’s family has contributed to the project in his honor, according to Wired Productions.” Avicii Invector celebrates Avicii’s life and music by immersing players inside the pulsing rhythms, evocative lyrics, and beautiful melodies he created. He was an amazing talent, and as an advocate for mental health, I hope and believe this project will bring Tim Bergling’s wonderful spirit to a world that can benefit from it,” added Wired Productions Managing Director Leo Zullo.
For those that have not heard of the game, it follows a space pilot named Stella as she visits various worlds, all to the tune of Avicii’s music. Overall, Avicii Invector features 25 of his songs, with each level being playable on three difficulties in single-player or co-op. Avicii Invector builds upon the original with updated visuals and new content like an additional world. If you are a fan of Avicii and either missed out on the original or don’t have a PS4, this definitely seems like a rhythm game to keep your eye on.
You can see the game’s new look in the screenshots below. Avicii Invector is currently in development for Nintendo Switch, PC and Xbox One, with a PS4 update on its way sometime this Winter. A percentage of the game’s profits will be going to The Tim Bergling Foundation, a charity founded by Avicii’s parents to “advocate for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promote removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues.”
