I’m really not a big fan of the VR games that have been coming out recently, but developers Arrowiz has managed to create a Rhythm based music game called Beats Fever, that actually looks pretty cool.
Beats Fever has stylish neon visual effects and futuristic looking environments to match. If you are a fan of the classic game Osu! then you’ll probably find Beats Fever to be a really cool concept.
Instead of using a drawing tablet to touch to the rhythm of the music and hit the indicators on screen, you will instead use a VR headset and the motion wands to tap the circles to the beat of the music, and like most rhythm games there will also be a score ranking chart to grade your performance so that you can aim towards reaching the top of the charts.
The concept of using the wands gives Beats Fever a unique twist and gives the gameplay a feeling that resembles using drum sticks to create music. The developers released a teaser trailer for Beats Fever, so check out the video linked below.
If you are just getting into the VR gaming market, you will probably be happy to know that Beats Fever will work for all the major VR headsets, such as the HTC Vive, the Oculus Rift, the Playstation VR and of course the Steam VR headset, giving you different options to jump into the game. The developers released a second gameplay video that shows the timeline and exactly how you play the game, so check out the second gameplay video below.
Beats Fever will release sometime this year with a few stages and music tracks for you to playthrough, but the developers are planning on expanding the content such as collectables, decorations, an expert mode, a 2 player-op mode, as well as a new contest mode for the year 2017. Beats Fever has already been Greenlit for Steam by the community, so you can expect it to hit the store soon.
