hello games and Wired Productions ltd. have have teamed up to create a tribute to the late EDM superstar Avicii.
Their critically acclaimed rhythm game, Avicii Invectorsaw a version for PC, PlayStation 4and Xbox One in December 2019. The game is now getting a beefy expansion and a version for nintendo switch.
Avicii Invector Encore Edition features 10 new playable tracks, including new versions of Avicii’s posthumous album Tim. These songs add to the 25 tracks on the initial release and include “Seek Bromance”, “Bad Reputation”, “Peace of Mind” and the hit “Seek Bromance”, among others. These tracks will be available for the previous version of the game in the form of song packs called “Tim” and “Magma”.
Invector was originally dreamed up by Avicii, whose friends and family have since completed the project after his tragic passing in 2018. The rhythm game’s completion and expansion is a thoughtful tribute to the producer, whose vision to merge music and the gameplay has now come to life. “AVICII Invector Encore Edition allows this vision to live on as a celebration of the wonderful spirit and life-affirming music of Tim Bergling,” said Leo ZulloCEO of Wired Productions.
All in-game music royalties will directly support the The Tim Bergling Foundationwhich advocates suicide prevention and eliminating the stigma behind discussions of mental health issues.
Avicii Invector Encore Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 8, 2020, to celebrate what would have been Avicii’s 31st birthday. A free demo edition will be available in August 2020.
