Following the mobile game BTS Universe Story, the popular K-pop boy band is back in yet another game. Titled Rhythm Hive, the new mobile rhythm game features music from artists under BTS’s label, Big Hit Entertainment.
Rhythm Hive offers solo, multiplay, and competitive modes. Players can choose the short or full version of a single song or a mix of three different songs. Performance cards with your favorite member from BTS, TXT, or Enhypen are also available and offer different bonus points.
“Rhythm Hive allows users to optimize the game’s level of difficulty, speed and other factors so that a wide variety of players, from experts to beginners, can enjoy it,” the developer Superb Corp. told Variety.
Like a lot of other games out there, Rhythm Hive will have seasons and an optional subscription system. It’s currently in Pre-Season, but players should expect different competitions and rankings in a future Grand Prix Season 1 update. The game’s subscription service is called Hive Pass and gives extra performance cards and bonuses. When players purchase it for the first time, they will get a 14-day free trial period. Weverse users and Official Fanclub members get extra bonuses as well.
Superb Corp. was acquired by Big Hit Entertainment in 2019 and has released other music games like Pianista, a classical music rhythm game. BTS was part of another rhythm game, but SuperStar BTS’s service ended in 2020.
Rhythm Hive is available on Android and iOS devices.
