Avicii has teamed up with PlayStation for a new 'rhythmic space pilot game', named 'Invector', which puts the player in the cockpit of a futuristic craft, with the task of flying down gravity defying tracks and through various symbols that correlate to different beat variations, thus creating music as they make progress.
That description sounds a little like DJ Hero, combined with the classic PSOne titles Wipeout and Wipeout 2097- which featured tracks from the likes of Orbital, Leftfield, Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, and Future Sound of London, representing landmarks in terms of video game scores when they arrived.
'Invector' was first unveiled two years ago in Paris, and has been developed for the PlayStation 4. In other visual Avicii news, the EDM head, who earlier this year announced a string of new music and a possibile return to the live stage, recently saw a documentary about his rise to superstardom and subsequent physical and mental health problems shown simultaneously in cinemas across the UK.
Take a look at the trailer for the game below, which features the producer's track 'Without You', with rumours abound the final release will include tracks such as 'Pure Grinding', 'What Would I Change It To', and 'You Be Love'.
