BPM: Bullets Per Minute gets custom music on PC

BPM: Bullets Per Minute

Awe Interactive have released the most requested update ever for their rhythm-based roguelite FPS, BPM: Bullets Per Minute.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute originally released on PC back in September 2020, and later received console ports on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Now that the Nintendo Switch version is finally out, the developers have swapped back to the PC version to give fans what they have been waiting for: custom music.

You can now upload your own music to BPM: Bullets Per Minute to create custom soundtracks to slay demons to. The developers recommend using .WAV files instead of .MP3, and there may be some syncing issues you might need to tweak to get your tracks working right.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

BPM: Bullets Per Minute

Fight as a mighty Valkyrie to repel the forces of the underworld from invading the world of Asgard.

In BPM, all of your actions and the actions of your enemies are tied to the beat of the music. Your enemies perform a dance-like sequence of attacks to an epic rock opera. BPM is inspired by retro shooters of the 90’s. It is fast, frenetic and rhythmical. You can double jump, dash, rocket jump and bunny hop to evade your opponents.

Your goal is to reach the end of randomly generated dungeons, collecting different weapons, abilities and items each time you play. These weapons and abilities can radically alter the way you play, making each playthrough unique.

You must defeat 7 bosses to reach the final boss. Each boss moves and attacks in a unique way that you must learn to exploit if you want to succeed. Some attacks require you to jump over fields of lava, some to dodge fast projectiles, some to hold fast for a beat.

BPM: Bullets Per Minute features:

  • Shoot, jump and dodge to the beat while battling hordes of enemies.
  • Fight powerful bosses in challenging boss battles that will push you to the edge.
  • Explore randomly generated dungeons.
  • Choose from 10 different characters with unique strengths and weaknesses.
  • Wield a powerful arsenal of weapons, all with different behaviour for firing and reloading to the beat of the soundtrack.
  • Battle a diverse array of enemies, each with unique rhythmic behaviours.
  • Get overpowered and fire shotgun rockets while flying through the air.
  • Utilize abilities that radically alter the way you play the game, from teleport to freezing bolts.
  • Equip over 60 items that buff your character in unique and interesting ways.
  • Experience an epic rock opera soundtrack.
  • Challenge modes for extra gameplay.
  • Add Custom Music into BPM and shoot, dash and dodge to the beat of your own soundtrack.
