Team Xbox revealed the new game from Tango Gameworks of The Evil Within and more recently Ghostwire Tokyo fame, with the arrival of Hi-Fi Rush. The game offers an action experience in time with the soundtrack making for an extra layer of immersion when combating the game’s mechanical enemies. Whilst it’s not the first game to do this (cue Devil May Cry), it certainly looks the most animated. Take a look at our Hi-Rush gameplay video from the PC version via Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Hi-Fi RUSH puts you in the beat-up sneakers of Chai, a wannabe rocker wrongfully labeled a “defect” by a sinister tech corporation. Everything in Hi-Fi RUSH automatically syncs to the music, from swinging your trusty guitar to dodging out of the way of an oversized metallic fist. Players must feel the rhythm to enhance Chai’s actions, pulling off heavy Beat Hits at the end of a combo like a cymbal crash, or syncing up with one of his allies for a devastating tag-team finisher. In Hi-Fi RUSH, every battle is an opportunity to play out your own music video fantasy, seamlessly coordinating all your moves with the soundtrack.
