Rock Band developer Harmonix has announced its new free-to-play runner, Record Run, is expected to hit iOS in May.
Revealed at PAX East, Record Run appears at first glance to be a pretty standard runner. Where the game differs from other runners on the App Store is that you can import your own music to generate levels, with the song's beat dictating the pace.
Once you've completed a level you can share your highscore with the world, and give other players the chance to purchase and download the song to challenge your leaderboard dominance.
In his PAX East panel, Harmonix’s studio head Alex Rigopulos said that Record Run is just one of several “very different" mobile games which the studio is working on.
Record Run is already in submission, and the developer is planning to soft-launch it in Canada and Australia in the next few weeks, with a worldwide release on iPhone and iPad planned for May.
