Evil Within Studio Releases Hi-Fi Rush Rhythm Action


Tango Gameworks, the studio behind the Evil Within series, has announced a new rhythm action game called Hi-Fi Rush.

According to PC Gamer, the colorful animated game is already available on Xbox Series X|S and PC. Fans can access the full version (not the demo or beta version) via Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass and Steam.

The official description reads: “As a wannabe rock star Chai, you will fight against a sinister robotics improvement conglomerate using rhythm-enhanced fights, where everything — from movement in the environment to blows in battle — is synchronized with music.

“Raise your guitar high and feel the rhythm in this brand new game from Tango Gameworks, the team behind The Evil Within.”

Hi-Fi Rush will also see Chai meet and recruit combat partners, each with different skills such as armor-destroying attacks and the ability to juggle enemies.

Compared to a “game-long concept album” and a “Kid on a video game drive,” Hi-Fi Rush contains licensed tracks by cult rock bands, including Nine Inch Nails and The Black Keys.

“Damn, the animation of Chai’s inactivity shows how he snaps his fingers at what you are listening to at the moment,” adds the description. More information can be found here.

The survival horror The Evil Within was released through Bethesda Softworks in 2014, and a sequel appeared three years later.

Back in 2021, NME stated that the first installment was “a video game gem—a game that I now consider at least equal to the much more illustrious Resident Evil 4—only hidden deep inside the dog shit.”
