In a pre-recorded video at Sony’s Paris Games Week press conference, developer Hello There announced Vector, a multiplayer focused rhythm game, is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2016. The game, which looks pretty cool, also features a single player mode and leader boards. Vector is being produced in collaboration with musician Avicii, who expressed his excitement in the video about working with PlayStation.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Oskar Eklund, a developer from Hello There explained the game’s concept: “Vector is a multiplayer music game, offering a seamless fusion between gameplay, graphics, and music. The idea is a responsive experience, where you and your friends’ performance not only affect the race and final rankings, but will also bring dynamic changes to the music and environment, which will make each race feel like your own little remixed version of that particular track.”
“One really fun thing is Tim’s (Avicii) genuine interest in the development of the game. Just like us at Hello There, he grew up with PlayStation. Apart from creating exclusive remixes for the game, he’s been spending hours playtesting it, offering feedback, and contributing valuable ideas for multiplayer. It’s really important to him that we capture the feeling of having fun together with your friends — just like during his huge concerts.”
