Is Fuser the perfect fusion of game and music?
Harmonix has always been at the forefront of music-themed games especially the rhythm-music peripheral juggernauts like Guitar Hero, Rockband, and Dance Central. This time around the focus has changed from the must-have peripheral to a game that lets you mix and match the best parts from a selection of hit songs to try and impress the crowd at a massive DJ festival using only a controller.
Fuser is already available to pre-order and all pre-orders will include three bonus DLC songs: Dua Lipa “New Rules,” Khalid “Young Dumb & Broke,” and The Killers “Mr Brightside”. A digital-only VIP Edition will also launch alongside the standard edition of Fuser which will include entitlements to the first 25 DLC songs, the Shatterfall Stage Video Pack (which contains three video wall motifs for your performances), and three cosmetic items for your DJ avatar.
If music games are your jam, then this is one to keep your eyes on. Maybe it will even reboot the genre – who knows!
