Harmonix Announces Musical FPS Chroma

February 18, 2014

Chroma announcementRock Band developer Harmonix has announced Chroma, a musically-driven first person shooter. Chroma will intrinsically tie music with arena-based shooting; The game’s soundtrack will directly influence combat and traversal, musical “change-ups” will alter the landscape, and weapons will be inspired by musical sounds such as wobbling bass and crashing drums.

Chroma will be released on PC, via Steam, and will be a free-to-play title, although Harmonix is emphasising that it will not be “play-to-win”.

Harmonix are teaming up with Hidden Path Entertainment, who has previously worked on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the Defence Grid series, to develop Chroma.

Chroma has been a dream project of mine for some time,” said Harmonix co-founder and CEO Alex Rigopulos in a press release, “Watching the teams at Harmonix and Hidden Path begin to bring this vision to life has been tremendously exciting. We’re also thrilled to release an alpha version of this game and to evolve it in collaboration with our players. We can’t wait to hear what people think of this new approach to both first-person shooters and music games.”

The company has released an announcement trailer and is offering the opportunity to sign up for the Closed Alpha.
