A journey of redemption is promised with Deep Silver’s latest new IP, and in Chorus, that journey will take you through the galaxy and beyond.
Coming from Deep Silver FISHLABS, Chorus will release in 2021 on both current (Xbox One, PS4) and next-gen consoles (Xbox Series X, PS5), along with PC and Google Stadia for good measure.
Working with Smart Delivery on Xbox, allowing you to take in the very best experience across Xbox One and Xbox Series X with a single purchase, Chorus is a new dark space-combat shooter in which players will 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.
Chorus will provide a story-driven single-player experience that 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.
Tobias Severin, Studio Director at Deep Silver FISHLABS said: “We’re delighted to announce this exciting new IP. From the beginning our focus has been on delivering amazing moment to moment gameplay to evolve the spirit of classic space flight shooters. We are fully leveraging the power of gen 9 hardware, allowing us to create richer, more detailed, ray traced environments, all at 4K and 60FPS.”
