The loss of the legendary Avicii back in 2018 was one that was hard felt across the music industry. But now, thanks to a combination of Hello There Games and Wired Productions, fans across the globe can continue to pay respects to the great man, blasting through the intense rhythm experience that is AVICII Invector on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Relaunching on PS4 and hitting Xbox One and PC for the first time, AVICII Invector was created in collaboration with the man himself, seeing the development team at Hello There Games able to push forward a brand new musical experience.
And that experience is a great one too, with no less than 25 of the very best hits from the Avicii catalogue available for you to hammer through, nailing button prompts and working your way through a number of delightful worlds in order to obtain the highest score you possibly can. With multiple difficulties in place, split-screen action available should you so wish, and levels that have been designed to flow with the music, AVICII Invector is certainly one your won’t want to be passing up.
“Tim wanted to spread positivity through his music. I hope that this rhythm game – with more than two dozen of Tim’s songs – will give joy to his fans,” said Klas Bergling, Tim’s father. “Tim developed Avicii Invector together with Hello There Games a few years ago and we are now happy to make it available on more platforms. All Avicii’s net proceeds from the Invector game will be donated to the Tim Bergling Foundation to prevent mental illness among young people.”
“AVICII Invector celebrates AVICII’s life and music by immersing players inside the pulsing rhythms, evocative lyrics, and heart-tugging melodies he created,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director of Wired Productions. “He was an amazing talent and I hope and believe this project will bring Tim Bergling’s wonderful spirit to a world that can benefit from it.”
