‘Amplitude’ Release Date Revealed

Harmonix has revealed a release date for its upcoming PlayStation 4 revival of the classic PlayStation 2 rhythm game Amplitude. The game, which was delayed multiple times from its originally scheduled release window of March 2015, was a Kickstarter success last year, pulling in over US $840,000 in its funding campaign.

The game will release digitally on January 5, 2016 for US $19.99, but Kickstarter backers who pledged US $40 or more will gain early access to the title on December 23, 2015.

In a post announcing the release date on the PlayStation Blog, Nick Mudry, a publishing associate at Harmonix, wrote a little bit about the game and revealed its soundtrack.

“Harmonix rebooted this PS2 cult-classic music game with the help of Kickstarter backers. Amplitude is back with high-fidelity visuals, new songs, a sci-fi narrative, and more.”

Amplitude features a single-player campaign along with competitive and cooperative local multiplayer modes.

There are also leaderboards available for bragging rights.”
