Playtonic Friends have announced that they will be bringing BPM: Bullets Per Minute, the indie FPS that became a big hit on PC last year, to PS4 and Xbox One later this year in partnership with the developers Awe Interactive. You can check out the gameplay trailer for yourself at the top of the page.
What’s BPM: Bullets Per Minute All About?
BPM is a rhythm-based FPS where your every action, whether it be jumping, shooting or dodging enemy attacks, is done to the beat of a brilliant rock soundtrack. Players pick from a set roster of characters, each with their own abilities, and explore randomly generated dungeons filled with enemies and powerful bosses.
Anything New With The Console Release Of BPM?
The console release will come bundled with all the content that’s been released in the PC version of the game, which includes five new characters, three completely new weapons, a whole new chapter, two extra difficulty settings and new items to use when you’re in the middle of a run. BPM has only been confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One though, but the game will be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S through backwards compatibility.
What’s Playtonic Friends Again?
Playtonic Friends are the publishing arm for the indie developer Playtonic, the team responsible for the Banjo-Kazooie inspired Yooka-Laylee series. Playtonic Friends have already announced their first project, working with Fabraz on the 3D platformer Demon’s Turf, which is set to launch on PC and consoles later this year.
Gavin Price, Playtonic’s CEO, had the following to say in a press release about this announcement: “Signing a deal to publish a game made by a studio you’ve never physically met whilst simultaneously launching a publishing label might sound daunting for some, but here at Playtonic Friends, we saw it as a challenge to master one of the new normal’s routine tasks: Loudly and repeatedly informing each other that one or more of us had left our mics on mute during endless Zoom calls. It’s been a pleasure to come together with Awe Interactive and we’re genuinely excited to bring BPM: Bullets Per Minute to console gamers this summer.”
