Today, on Inside Xbox, Deep Silver Fishlabs exclusively revealed our brand-new title, Chorus, releasing in 2021 on Xbox Series X and Xbox One with Smart Delivery for all players. This means that you will only need to buy the game once to play on both Xbox Series X and Xbox One. Chorus will look great on Xbox One, but we’re pushing it to the limit on Xbox Series X. For those who missed our awesome announce trailer, you can watch it above.
In Chorus, players take control of dual protagonists: ex-cultist Nara, an ace pilot with a haunted past, and Forsaken, a sentient AI starfighter and her closest ally, with a mysterious backstory of his own to unravel. This story-driven single-player experience invites gamers to unlock devastating weapons and mind-bending abilities as they fight to free the galaxy from the Circle: an oppressive cult that will stop at nothing to ensure complete subjugation.
From the beginning, our focus has been on delivering amazing minute-to-minute gameplay to evolve the spirit of classic space flight shooters. We are fully leveraging the power of Xbox Series X hardware, allowing us to create richer and more detailed ray-traced environments, all at 4K and 60 FPS.
While we don’t want to give too much away just yet, we’re excited to share a little more of this universe with you.
A Journey of Redemption
Lead Nara, an ace pilot facing her haunted past, and Forsaken, her sentient ship. Their quest for redemption will take them across the galaxy and beyond the boundaries of reality, as they fight to unite resistance forces against the Circle and their leader, the Great Prophet, at all costs.
Venture Beyond the Void
Enter a dark new universe, teeming with mystery and rife with conflict. Explore epic locations including sprawling space stations and strange planes of existence beyond our own. Engage in exhilarating Zero-G dogfights from epic cosmic vistas to tight crystalline corridors. Chorus balances the scale and spectacle of space exploration with frenetic, fast-paced action.
One Pilot, One Ship, One Living Weapon
Attain powerful and distinct weapons and combat upgrades. Master your ship’s unique drift mechanic and deadly mind-bending abilities, including extra-sensory perception, teleportation and telekinesis, to overcome massive hordes of enemies and take down titanic battleships. Chain your powers together to become the ultimate living weapon.
We’re looking forward to sharing more on Chorus with you in the upcoming months, but until then, prepare yourselves for a journey beyond the Void.
