Chorus is an open-world space combat game from Fishlabs that puts you in the cockpit of a sentient star fighter amidst a galaxy-wide conflict with a fanatical cult called The Circle. Its leader, the Great Prophet, seeks to lead humanity, through force and subjugation, into a harmonious era of peace or what he calls Chorus.
You play as Nara, a former high-ranking Circle pilot who literally blew up a planet, killing a billion people. Her guilt over this heinous act causes her to desert, hide her identity, and join the fledgling resistance against The Circle, but their overwhelming power forces Nara to reclaim her planet-destroying ship, called Forsaken, and face her past.
Chorus simplifies the standard flight controls of other air and space shooters to slap on fun new attack and mobility options. It makes up for its stale characters with a cool setting and inventive ways to make use of your kit throughout the roughly 12-hour adventure. If a couple bugs can get ironed out, I have no doubt players will be singing its praises. The game is out December 3 for $39.99 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and Google Stadia.
