This Week at Wired - 13-09-2020

This Week at Wired - Switch owners got a little less lonely together.

Hello again Wired fans and welcome to another roundup of what became quite a busy week of awesome gaming news!

Avicii Invector Encore released!

This week Nintendo Switch owners were finally able to dive into the neon fuelled journey through Avicii's chart topping discography.
Encore edition released worldwide, bringing 10 new songs to Avicii Invectors track list and a brand new world to soar through!

And even better, if you already own Invector, you can grab the new songs to add to the base game in the form of two brand new DLC packs.

Check out the launch trailer below!


The team at Wired Productions and Hello There Games are consummate music fans and aim to make an impact with our efforts.  All of AVICII Music’s net proceeds will go directly to the Tim Bergling Foundation, which advocates for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promotes removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues.

 You can purchase Avicii Invector today from the following locations :

Raising money for charity - Wired style!

It wouldn't be a Wired game launch without a top quality custom console to celebrate it!

We created five of these beauties, four of which were given away via competitions during the month leading up to launch - but the fifth we saved for an incredible cause.

We've partnered with Tiltify to create a raffle auction!

Raffle entries are available to purchase for just £5, with every single penny raised being donated to Safe In Our World, the video games mental health charity. The winner will receive a custom Nintendo Switch-Lite console and copy of AVICII Invector: Encore Edition.

Given the nature of Avicii's legacy which has included discussion mental health and awareness of it as a global issue - it felt only fair to honor that part of Avicii's story, and use the power of the Avicii fanbase and gamers worldwide to help support a charity which combines all of those elements in a powerful way.
