Between publishing Redfall and developing Starfield, Bethesda has a lot of good stuff in the works right now. Hi-Fi Rush, however, revealed as part of the Microsoft Developer Direct, comes as a bit of a surprise. Rumours about its development have circulated since around 2021, but now the new sci-fi rhythm action game from The Evil Within creators Tango Gameworks has been officially unveiled.
As part of a joint showcase, Microsoft and Bethesda have shown off several games currently in production. and Hi-Fi Rush is a brand new over-the-top Borderlands-looking game from the team behind Ghostwire Tokyo.
You need to flow with Hi-Fi Rush’s beat for the game’s combat as you play as a wannabe rockstar in a world where the gameplay and the soundtrack are intertwined.
Check it out below:
Attacks automatically sync to land on the beat, but if you get the timing just right, you do more damage ad have more effective moves in combat. Cutscenes, platforming obstacles, and more also sync to the beat, so you’ll need to get your dancing skills down-pat.
We’re still waiting for more details on Starfield, with a dedicated show rumoured to be on its way, but in the meantime, Hi-Fi Rush, from the studio founded by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, looks pretty special.
