Deep Silver and developer Fishlabds have announced today that they’ll be releasing a brand new, next-gen game on Stadia in 2021. Yeah, it’s still some time away, but it’s worth taking note anyway as the game looks incredible.

Chorus was revealed during the Inside Xbox event that ran today where we got to see what the game is all about. In Chorus, you take on the role of ex-cultist Nara, an ace pilot with a dark past, and a second character, Forsaken – a sentient AI starfighter and Nara’s closest ally. You control both characters at the same time during the story-driven single-player campaign which sees players fight to free the galaxy from the evil clutches of the Circle, an oppressive cult.

“We’re delighted to announce this exciting new IP, said Tobias Severin, Studio Director at Deep Silver FISHLABS. “From the beginning, our focus has been on delivering amazing moment to moment gameplay to evolve the spirit of classic space flight shooters. We are fully leveraging the power of next-gen hardware, allowing us to create richer, more detailed, ray-traced environments, all at 4K and 60FPS.”
