Watch the new trailer for AVICII Invector Encore Edition on Switch now:
Only on Nintendo Switch can players truly experience Tim’s music in a way he envisioned the project, with players able to experience his music however, or wherever, gamers prefer to play. With up to four-player local multiplayer, fans can soar through vocal melodies, sweep each fade, and attack every beat in 35 of AVICII’s biggest hits. This really is the definitive way to play AVICII’s music, with all music royalties supporting suicide awareness through the Tim Bergling Foundation. Of course, Tim didn’t just want to create a game that celebrated his music; he wanted to create an incredible rhythm game, inspired by his love from the genre—and with a Metacritic score over 80%, the hype is real!
The full track list for AVICII Invector includes:
Tim Song Pack
Magma Song Pack
AVICII Invector is available now and released as the AVICII Invector Encore Edition today for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in digital stores along with the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch physical retail versions for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99.

Tim’s parents have endowed the foundation with a significant contribution from his estate and will direct proceeds from future AVICII projects and the recent release of the posthumous album, ”TIM” (2019) to the foundation.
The Tim Bergling Foundation will advocate for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promote removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues. It will support science-based organizations that engage in research into the causes and prevention of suicide, particularly for young people.
Additionally, the foundation will support non-profits that address issues for which Tim had a passion, such as climate change, preservation of endangered species, global hunger, and more.
