The makers of Rock Band reveal new music game for Xbox One, PS4, Switch, & PC
Harmonix are back with a brand new game that looks to make you a stadium DJ mixing some of the biggest tracks in history.
Their name game is called Fuser and appropriately so as this new game sets you the task of fusing together some of the most popular songs new and old. They call it “a non-stop virtual music festival where you control the music”.
You play as a DJ mixing songs like Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy with 50 Cent, or mash up Old Town Road with All Star by Smash Mouth. You’ll mix different elements from songs, for example you can extract the vocals from one song, the beat from another, and the melody from a third and you have to make them all work on these grand, imagined stages.
Harmonix boss, Steve Janiak said: “Music today is an experience. It’s not just people listening to albums any more – it’s recording and sharing videos of you singing along to your favourite bands play at festivals, and sharing hit music with your friends.”
Fuser will have 3 game modes: Campaign Play which sets you the task of mixing to impress the crowd and unlock more, Freestyle Play which sounds like a playground for playing and creating mixes, and Multiplayer which lets you collaborate with players around the world like an online Daft Punk.
Janiak added: “Fuser puts players at the center of all that by letting you mix and share some of the biggest hits on your way to becoming a festival headliner.” Over 100 hits in total they’re promising, and they’ve revealed the first 16 already:
- 50 Cent – In Da Club

- Blue Öyster Cult – (Don’t Fear) The Reaper
- The Chainsmokers ft. Daya – Don’t Let Me Down
