Celebrating Avicii

Celebrating Avicii

Today we lifted the lid on the next Wired game, with the reveal of AVICII Invector

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, we all at Wired hope and believe this project will bring Tim Bergling’s wonderful spirit to a world that can benefit from it. 25% of all proceeds will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation.

The rhythm game will make its debut on Xbox One, Nintendo™ Switch and PC, along with a re-launch on the PlayStation®4; and will enjoy a full retail release across all formats.  Created by Hello There Games, and with the full support of AVICII Music, the AVICII Invector game is a fast-paced rhythm experience which fuses Avicii’s trademark brand of uplifting EDM music coupled with serene visualscapes to allow everyone to feel and experience his music in a new way

This news follows the selling out of the Avicii Tribute Concert, which will be held in Stockholm December 5th, and where names including Rita Ora, Kygo, David Guetta and more will honour the late musician.

Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, himself a lifelong gamer, worked on AVICII Invector for two years and saw the game’s original release come to fruition with a first version on PS4™. The upcoming new multi-platform release will help to celebrate Avicii’s music and turn up the volume while taking rhythm gaming to new heights. Created in collaboration with the Swedish DJ, AVICII Invector has become much more of an homage to his music since his tragic passing in 2018. Set against a backdrop of 25 of his biggest hits, Invector lets players fly solo or recreate the party feeling of an Avicii concert with local split-screen racing. Players can join space pilot Stella on her journey from one stunning world to the next, mastering moves as they race through gorgeous landscapes while hitting the notes with three difficulties to master.
