FUSER – Ver. 1.4.0 – Headliner Spotlight Update

  • Release date: February 11th 2021 (North America, Europe)
  • Patch notes:

No patch notes available. This update brings the following:

  • Diamond Stage: a real-time spotlight for players to mix the hits in front of an audience of hundreds of other FUSER players. Starting this week, viewers can watch the Diamond Stage 24/7 both in game and in a new FUSER Twitch channel at https://www.twitch.tv/FUSERheadliner.
  • Big adjustments to the in-game XP economy and currency. The new Diamond Shop gives players more options to earn and spend in-game currency on customizable items for their DJ and even new tracks to mix onstage. Diamonds can be earned in-game by participating in events either through playing or voting, and through the single-player campaign, freestyle, and multiplayer modes. Diamonds are only earnable by participating in-game, and cannot be purchased through real money transactions. Plus, Diamonds are the only way to reserve primetime slots on the Diamond Stage. 
  • Upgrades to social interface with improvements to player DJ Profiles
  • More robust Recommendation Engine for players to find mixes that appeal to them via FUSER’s social features.
  • Twitch Drops are now fully integrated into the game, including Nintendo Switch players now, providing players even more ways to earn content by watching other DJs perform on Twitch. 
  • Additional notes: none.

New features

  • Live Set Events – These new events add a competitive flair to the recurring in-game events. Live Sets will present a challenge to all FUSER DJs, including leaderboards and prizes for reaching score tiers. 
  • Customizing Freestyle Co-Op – Players will now be able to adjust the number of rounds and the length of rounds for public Co-Op Freestyle sessions. 
  • Hot Clips – Hot Clips is a powerful new creative tool, which allows DJs to preview a disc before dropping it onto the decks, effectively adding a fifth loop to their mixes. 
  • Finding the Right Mix – The update makes it easier to browse mixes players have liked through their profiles, as well as new sorting functions, including alphabetical, most liked/viewed, and date created.
  • Share with the World – This update adds several optimizations for sharing and streaming. Players can now share video from anywhere in the game using native console share functions, and DJs can now toggle an option to select only monetizable songs for streaming.
  • And More… – The 1.3 Update addresses bugs found by live players, adds in separate calibration profiles for docked and undocked mode for Nintendo Switch, UI improvements, and other quality of life improvements.
