Since the announcement of Hydeout’s virtual shift back in August, the music world has been patiently waiting for the launch of this revolutionary digital escape. Stacked with some of the globe’s most iconic musical performers, Hydeout: The Prelude is now ready to invite you into a world like no other.
Having already announced episodes with the likes of Alison Wonderland, DJ Snake, Don Diablo, Martin Garrix, Rita Ora, Tinashe and many more, Hydeout: The Prelude continues to raise the bar. Welcoming exclusive content from new additions and global rap icons Wiz Khalifa, G-Eazy and The Kid Laroi, genre-defying producer TOKiMONSTA, as well as Bohan, Dombresky and a Monstercat label takeover featuring the likes of Sullivan King, Habstrakt, Kill The Noise and Pixel Terror, the Hydetribe will bear witness to over 40 enthralling episodes across a variety of genres. With an explosive global episode premiere locked in for January 29th, Dutch superstar DJ Martin Garrix is set to ignite the online sphere, with French viral hitmaker DJ Snake’s episode to follow on January 30th. The ever-evolving music hub promises to keep fans satisfied with a constant flow of exciting content rolling out through 2021.
Hydeout: The Prelude will take fans on a truly unique journey, bridging the virtual and physical realms with secret locations around the world. Stepping through the portal, users will be transported to every corner of the globe with Hydeout’s exclusive on-demand episodes. The digital dimension will span three different worlds, HydeCity, HydeIsland and HydeEscape, encompassing over 20 stages including Aqua Sphere, HydeAlley, Pandemonium, Sanctum, The Arch, The Mirage and many other secret on-location stages in HydeEscape.
It’s safe to say we’ve all been feeling the effects of a year without festivals, and Hydeout: The Prelude is here to fill that void. In order to bring us as close as possible to that festival feeling, the platform encourages self-expression through avatar customisation, avatar dance moves and chat rooms. The Hydetribe will also be invited to test their gaming abilities and link up with fellow users in three different Hyde.Games. Hyde.Hoops offers the chance to shoot some virtual hoops, Hyde.Attack will get hearts racing in an energetic game of dodgeball and Hyde.Chef is set to get mouths watering as users will serve guests traditional Singaporean dishes in a fast-paced memory game. Competing against other users from all corners of the globe, subscribers can win Hydecoins, giving them the opportunity to purchase additional episodes and avatar skins.
Created by Singapore-based HydeNSeek Entertainment, supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, Hydeout’s digital empire stays true to its roots, integrating Singaporean landmarks into its environments, as well as showcasing some of the area’s hottest talents. Ready to be explored by those who share an innate desire to connect with likeminded people, and become immersed in a dazzling world of entertainment, the Hydetribe can unlock the full Hydeout experience with a Season Pass for USD $49.90. With multiple new episodes to enjoy every week, users will have unlimited playback views for 5 days upon first play.
