The Elixir of Madness Collection brings three all-new Scenes, plus a new genre of music.
That’s right, PlayStation VR2 fans: our Physical Action Rhythm game, Pistol Whip, has just received its thirteenth (!) free content update, Elixir of Madness This Collection of phantasmagorical delights brings three all-new Scenes to shimmy and shake your way through, plus a whole new genre of music that is sure to get your bones dancin’ ‘til dawn.
Read on for five reasons to check out the spooky spectacular that is the Elixir of Madness Collection…if you dare.
‘Tis the season!
The days get colder, the nights stretch on and on…if you’re in the mood for some seasonal scares with your VR gaming, Elixir has you covered. This Collection has new unearthly environments to rival your best neon nightmares, waves of ghastly assailants, and horrors that some might even describe as…unknowable.
(The best part? Not a jumpscare in sight. You’re too busy tearing up the dancefloor for that!)
Dancing skeleton armies
Need we say more? Elixir of Madness is inspired by vintage horror cinema, and the underground glee of 1920s swing clubs. Smash those two things together, and you get something glorious: a horde of skeletons doing the Charleston, in fact.
But don’t let your guard down; some of these capering cadavers attack in terrifying new ways. Keep a careful eye on the sky, and maybe even on the ground at your own two feet…
Dual-wielding Tommy Guns
Elixir adds three new weapons to your considerable arsenal: the heavy-hitting Sawed-Off Shotgun, the ghoulish Skull Bludgeon, and the burst-fire Tommy Gun. And because you can dual-wield quite literally anything in Pistol Whip, it’s time to unleash your inner zoot-suit-wearin’ bandit, and go in guns (or skulls?) blazin’!
A strange tale of cosmic frights
While our summertime Season, Overdrive, plunged you into five unique spectacles, Elixir of Madness! opens with a chilling scene: a snow-choked road, a desolate car, a forgotten mansion that beckons you forth. Take one step inside, and your fate is sealed; you must battle your way through haunted catacombs, hideous laboratories…and even your own spiraling mind.
A whole new genre: Electroswing
Ever since our foray into the wild, wild west with the Smoke & Thunder cinematic campaign, it’s been clear that tracks don’t have to be EDM to go hard. We’re proud to team up with electroswing artists Odd Chap, Duke Skellington, and the Electric Swing Circus to bring you three wicked new songs to juke, jive, and stay alive to. (Don’t be fooled by the retro vibes and brass sections, these Scenes will still have you sweating at the highest difficulty!)
If you’re excited to see even more unique music genres come to Pistol Whip, let us know. In fact, we might have something powerful in the works already…
