“Rhythm violence” game Thumper out this week, with PS VR and PS4 Pro 4K support

Demo version of Drool's fast, furious action game lands on Thursday

It’s been seven years in the making. Thumper is rhythm violence and available 13th October as a digital download on PlayStation Store. Thumper’s entire campaign — all nine epic levels — are playable in both psychedelic 1080p on PS4 and dangerously immersive VR on PlayStation VR.


Thumper uses just one analogue stick and one button, so it’s simple to pick up and play. But it’s challenging to master — even the best action gamers will spend hours surviving the advanced levels and defeating the terrifying bosses. We’ve also added expert-level moves you’ll need to master to reach high scores and unlock lucrative Trophies (including a Platinum).

Playing in traditional HD is perfect for long play sessions as you lock into the rhythm and perfect your skills. Thumper’s visuals scale up beautifully on large screen displays and the thunderous soundtrack will put the biggest subwoofers to the test!

On PS VR, you’ll scream through Thumper with an overwhelming sense of speed and physicality. The brutal action gameplay is particularly well suited to the high frame-rate and beautiful OLED display. We think it’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You can check it out on the PS VR demo downloadable from PlayStation Store on 13th October.


Last but not least, we’re excited to announce Thumper will support PS4 Pro from day one. We’ve worked hard to perfect Thumper’s graphics tech and the extra power lets us push our original vision even further. On PS4 Pro, Thumper will render at up to 4K resolution (With no upscaling!) for the ultimate high-gloss HD experience. PS4 Pro also enhances the VR rendering quality while maintaining the same rock-solid 90 frames-per-second. We’ll have more details on our PS4 Pro support soon!

Thumper is available 13th October on PlayStation Store. See you in rhythm hell!
