We Sing UK Hits presents the best of British music spanning an incredible six decades??– with both classic and contemporary British artists combining to produce a blockbuster 40-song tracklist. Each song has its own rating and can be played in short or full length song modes.

Fun for all the family, We Sing is the only singing series of games to support four players in any Party mode, using four separate microphones. Party mode includes We Sing, Versus, Group Battle, Pass The Mic, First to X, Marathon, Blind and Expert.

There’s also Solo mode and Karaoke mode, which strips the track of vocals to really challenge players, or those that fancy an authentic karaoke experience.

Other features include Singing Lessons to help singers fine tune voices and a Jukebox to queue up favourite songs like a personal music channel.

In-game awards come from playing either single or multiplayer modes, adding further depth and replay value to We Sing UK Hits!. Plus, once a track has been sung, players can replay performances and add cool effects to voices.

More points come thanks to Star Notes which provides extra points for hitting hard notes and Player Statistics give a detailed breakdown on performance on notes hit and missed with a comment on the performance at the end.

We Sing UK Hits will hit stores on September 30 th. Please email ali.wood@premierpr.com to reserve your review pack stating whether you require microphones.
