Developer Awe Interactive have announced that their fast and frantic first-person shooter BPM: Bullets Per Minute will launch on PC on September 15th, with a console release coming later down the line. A new trailer has been released to celebrate the reveal – check it out below:
BPM: Bullets Per Minute brings the kind of gameplay you’d expect from a dungeon-based shooter to the table, but encases it in a world where every action – every shot, every jump, and every dodge – is pulled off to the beat of an epic rock soundtrack.
The game serves up randomly generated dungeons infested with brilliantly preposterous monsters and tasks players with taking on the role of the mighty Valkyrie. The goal? Take out each and every boss to the beat, and look pretty darn cool while doing so.
“There’s no doubt we were inspired by the retro shooters from when we were growing up when putting BPM: Bullets Per Minute together, but we think the game’s unashamed slave-to-the-rhythm ethic gives it a fresh feel and an added edge,” says Awe Interactive founder David Jones.. “It’s that sweet spot between giving gamers a taste of the supreme shooters they loved when they were young, but also offering them something that genuinely pushes the boundaries of the genres the game straddles.”
BPM: Bullets Per Minute delivers a total of seven bosses players have to topple in order to reach the final boss, collecting an assortment of weapons, abilities, and items as they go, ensuring every playthrough has a unique feel.
All the action plays out to the beat of a barnstorming soundtrack, which takes inspiration from the likes of Wagner, Muse and Audioslave. Every pulse is tied to the in-game action, with the structure of BPM: Bullets Per Minute’s audio pulling everything together to make one cohesive world.
BPM: Bullets Per Minute sounds like it’s going to bring a creative (and bullet-fuelled) twist to rhythm gameplay… I have no doubt it’s going to be a real blast to play. You can take a look at some screenshots of the game in the gallery down below:
BPM: Bullets Per Minute is coming to PC on September 15th 2020 – it’s also coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in the near future. Check the game out on Steam through this link.
