Rhythm Shooter BPM: Bullets Per Minute Will Rock Onto PlayStation and Xbox this October

BPM: Bullets Per Minute is bringing its music-based FPS excellence to PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X|S this October.

No, we’re not jumping the gun, BPM really is that good; we reviewed the PC version and gave it an outstanding 9 out of 10, calling it “an adrenaline fuelled heavy-metal ride that you’d be daft to miss”. It a Norse-influenced FPS with roguelike elements, which tasks you with blasting your way through multiple monster-filled levels, as such games often do.

The twist is that you fire and reload your weapon to the beat of the each level’s thumping heavy metal track. So as well as being sealed into a room with some very aggressive foes, you’ve also got to be following the music, otherwise your gun will refuse to fire. You don’t have to nail every beat, but it can certainly be challenging.

However, it’s a challenge worth rising too because, when you’re in the zone (a phrase we thought we’d never, ever use) BPM: Bullets Per Minutes is a fantastic rush. And, even though failure sends you back to the beginning, you’ll be hard pressed to quit.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 (the latter two of which will hit 60FPS) this October 5th.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
