IGN is pleased to exclusively reveal brand new gameplay from Chorus, the space combat game from Fishlabs. This eight-minute segment of the game show’s off Chorus’s fast-paced battles and smooth flying, as well as a little ship customisation.
This segment sees protagonist Nara and her sentient spaceship, Forsaken, arrive at the space station of Maka Haven, where it is under assault from cultists. The station and its docked ships must be freed from the siege by destroying three psychic totems. This task provides a showcase for Chorus’ combat, which constantly bombards the screen with pretty particle effects and slick ship manoeuvres. Maka Haven also demonstrates some interesting level design, as flying within the station makes for a more tricky and close quarters environment compared to the infinite openness of space.
With Maka Haven freed, we also get to see a little of Chorus’ ship customisation, as Forsaken docks and is taken down to the station’s hangar. In the menus we can see that Forsaken’s structure, weapons, power, and more can be switched out and re-arranged, with new items purchased from the hangar.
Screens – Chorus [Xbox Series X Showcase 2020]
It’s not a story-focussed gameplay video, but towards the end Forsaken mentions travelling to a wormhole to the past, where it was constructed.
