Harmonix, in conjunction with the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developers at Hidden Path, have revealed their next project: a musical FPS by the name of Chroma.

The shooter, which will be free-to-play, will be built in the Unreal Engine and will shape and evolve itself based on the music as it plays. Not only will the landscape change, but players who move in time to the rhythm will be faster, and jump higher.

Chroma was previewed by Ars Technica whose article explains the whole concept in more detail. There’s also a trailer which we can’t unfortunately embed for you, so toddle over and check it out.

Two of my favourite gaming genres combined — this has potential, just so long as it can be played without dubstep.

 

The trailer lost me at “Wub Wub”
