Sci-fi action game CHORUS wins the coveted top prize at the German Computer Game Awards 2022.
CHORUS, the fast-paced space combat shooter from Hamburg studio Deep Silver FISHLABS, was awarded “Best German Game” at the renowned German Computer Game Award (DCP).
With CHORUS, DS FISHLABS has taken the nostalgic feel of classic space shooters and cleverly blended it with a contemporary mindset to further develop the spirit of these games. The jury for the German Computer Game Award, which was presented last night in Munich, was enthusiastic about this concept and awarded the hit sci-fi action game the most coveted prize of the night. In addition to the prize, Studio DS FISHLABS will receive a cash prize of 100,000 euros.
“We are incredibly proud of our team at Deep Silver FISHLABS and delighted that CHORUS has received the German Computer Games Award,” says Paul Nicholls, Global Brand and Marketing Director at Deep Silver. “The international team had as much freedom as possible in the conception and development of CHORUS. We see the award we have now received as ‘Best German Game’ as confirmation that we can absolutely trust the creative potential, skills and experience of our studios.”
In CHORUS, players take control of ace pilot Nara, a fugitive on a mission to destroy the dark cult that created her, confronting her haunted past along the way. CHORUS offers a new dark universe full of mysteries and conflicts. Along with her savvy Forsaken starfighter, she explores ancient temples, engages in thrilling zero-gravity battles, and fights to unite the resistance against the cult (known as the Circle) and its leader, the Great Prophet.
The Circle is ruled by the Great Prophet, but not much is known about this mysterious figure. Under his command, Nara and the Forsaken were responsible for many of the cult’s great victories and atrocities in its quest for galaxy domination. Once the deadliest warrior in the circle, Nara is now the most wanted fugitive.
Released in December 2021, CHORUS is a cross-platform title for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, the all-in-one gaming and entertainment systems from Microsoft, the PlayStation® 4 and PlayStation® 5 computer entertainment systems, and PC developed and financed by FilmFernsehFonds Bayern.
