An Avicii video game is being released to raise money for mental health
AVICII Invector will be made available through multiple gaming platforms this winter
A new video game celebrating the life and work of Avicii is to be launched across multiple gaming platforms this coming winter.
The game, called AVICII Invector, will see players heading off on an intergalactic journey, trying to hit notes as they race through various landscapes. It will come with solo and multiplayer options, and players will be given the choice of three difficulty levels.
The late DJ and producer had worked with games developer Hello There Games on the initial version of the product which was made available for PS4 back in 2017. This new iteration of AVICII Invector will make it also available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
25 of Avicii's songs will feature as part of the game, including hits 'Levels', 'Without You' and 'Lay Me Down'.
25% of the profits from the sale of the game will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation, the charity set up in his honour by his parents with a goal to support those working within mental health and suicide prevention.
“AVICII Invector celebrates Avicii’s life and music by immersing players inside the pulsing rhythms, evocative lyrics, and beautiful melodies he created," says Leo Zullo, Managing Director of Wired Productions, the game's publishing partner. “He was an amazing talent, and as an advocate for mental health, I hope and believe this project will bring Tim Bergling’s wonderful spirit to a world that can benefit from it.”

A waxwork of Avicii was unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York earlier this month.
An Avicii tribute concert for mental health awareness is scheduled to take place in Stockholm this December, featuring David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and more.
