Independent videogame developer and publisher Xyla Entertainment has announced the multiplayer beta for Rush Bros., the music-based platform videogame where you can use your own music, is now available. In Rush Bros. you can race against anyone in the world using an internet connection or challenge your friends locally using split-screen.
In Rush Bros. you will take control of one of two DJs to race across a stylised world of treacherous traps and perfectly placed platforms while using your environment to try to stop the other DJ from reaching the finish before you do. You will be able to see your opponent at all times, so make sure to keep an eye on your foe as they will try to obstruct your progress as well.
“Rush Bros. has always been designed with multiplayer in mind,” says Ian Boswell, Lead Game Designer at Xyla Entertainment, “Ever since watching The Wizard when we were young, we’ve wanted to make a racing/platforming hybrid with full multiplayer features. We’re happy to say we finally did it.”
Rush Bros. allows you to pick your own music track, making every challenge different as obstacles and environments will react to the tune of your choice. Rush Bros. will be available for PC and Mac in Q1 of 2013, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details from Xyla Entertainment.
