Así es, el nuevo título de Harmonix será un shooter el cual integrará lo que está desarrolladora sabe hacer mejor juego musicales. Es por esto que Hidden Path está inmiscuido en el proyecto, ya que son los encargados de afinar los detalles en la parte de disparador del título, dada su relativa experiencia en el genero con títulos como Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Chroma será enteramente multijugador y free-to-play para PC en Steam, contando con una profunda integración del soundtrack con el gameplay. El disparar a ritmo con la música ofrecerá bonos extra en daños y puntos, esto aplica también en cuanto al desplazamiento dentro de los mapas, en donde se encontrarán plataformas-trampolín en las que hay que saltar a ritmo, para efectivamente desplazarse rápidamente alrededor de cada mapa.

El juego ofrece distintas clases, las cuales están sujetas a distintas mecánicas musicales, y pueden sacar provecho de los cambios constantes del terreno algunos de los cuales pueden ser estratégicos, eso si, siempre ligados a la música del soundtrack.

Harmonix realizará una limitada alfa cerrada a la cual pueden inscribirse en, posteriormente el título podrá ser encontrada en Early Access de Steam, siendo lanzado más adelante en el año.

We’re also thrilled to release an alpha version of this game and to evolve it in collaboration with our players. We can’t wait to hear what people think of this new approach to both first-person shooters and music games.”

Chroma is an all-new entry into PC Game development for the team behind cultural phenomena including Rock Band and Dance Central. With technology powered by Unreal and a partnership with experienced shooter developers Hidden Path, Chroma aims high, even in its alpha release.
