'BPM: Bullets Per Minute' Gets PC Date, Also Comes to PS4 And Xbox One - Screens & Trailer

BPM: Bullets Per Minute is a rhythm-action, FPS, rogue-like game where you must shoot, jump and dodge to the beat of an epic rock soundtrack.

Delve into a randomly generated dungeon where one missed note can lead to your death. Gain game-changing abilities and loot powerful weaponry to defeat your ancient enemy: Nidhogg.

Fight as a mighty Valkyrie to repel the forces of the underworld from invading the world of Asgard. 

In BPM, all of your actions and the actions of your enemies are tied to the beat of the music. Your enemies perform a dance-like sequence of attacks to an epic rock opera. BPM is inspired by retro shooters of the 90’s. It is fast, frenetic and rhythmical. You can double jump, dash, rocket jump and bunny hop to evade your opponents. 

The game serves up randomly generated dungeons infested with brilliantly preposterous monsters and tasks players with taking on the role of the mighty Valkyrie. The goal? Take out each and every boss to the beat, and look pretty darn cool while doing so.

You must defeat 7 bosses to reach the final boss. Each boss moves and attacks in a unique way that you must learn to exploit if you want to succeed. Some attacks require you to jump over fields of lava, some to dodge fast projectiles, some to hold fast for a beat. 


“There’s no doubt we were inspired by the retro shooters from when we were growing up when putting BPM: Bullets Per Minute together, but we think the game’s unashamed slave-to-the-rhythm ethic gives it a fresh feel and an added edge,” says Awe Interactive founder David Jones.. “It’s that sweet spot between giving gamers a taste of the supreme shooters they loved when they were young, but also offering them something that genuinely pushes the boundaries of the genres the game straddles.”

Key Features:

  • Shoot, jump and dodge to the beat while battling hordes of enemies.
  • Fight powerful bosses in challenging boss battles that will push you to the edge.
  • Explore randomly generated dungeons.
  • Choose from 5 different characters with unique strengths and weaknesses. 
  • Wield a powerful arsenal of weapons, all with different behaviour for firing and reloading to the beat of the soundtrack. 
  • Battle a diverse array of enemies, each with unique rhythmic behaviours. 
  • Get overpowered and fire shotgun rockets while flying through the air.
  • Utilize abilities that radically alter the way you play the game, from teleport to freezing bolts. 
  • Equip over 40 items that buff your character in unique and interesting ways. 
  • Experience an epic rock opera soundtrack.
  • Challenge modes for extra gameplay.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute is coming to PC (Steam) on September 15, 2020, followed by PS4 and Xbox One version at a later time.
