Those who felt left out of the fun with Audica when it launched on the PC for the Oculus platform, there is now luck for you. It is still going to be a VR title, but now Harmonix has announced that the game will now be making its way over to the PSVR this coming Fall. It will still, obviously, require all of the extra hardware to experience Audica in the new setting, but that is a cheaper point of entry for those who are still looking to get into it all. Even if this is quite a bit after it launched in Early Access already. We can all take what we can here, though.
It should go without saying, but Audica will be coming along with all of the fixes and changes that have come out of the Early Access thus far. It will also house the 30+ tracks that are already out there for the game. Sadly, it will not offer up the mods that we have seen and experienced thus far, but that is how it goes when you jump from PC to console. That is not to say that we do not have some great options for Audica already. It just means that you will be stuck with what they can license and get out to us all. Just like other rhythm VR titles we have out there already.
Audica — PlayStation VR Announce
Audica, the popular VR “rhythm shooter” that combines Harmonix’s award-winning music gameplay with precision shooting mechanics and an amazing soundtrack featuring songs from some of the world’s most popular artists, is coming to PlayStation VR this fall.
Armed with a pair of rhythm blasters, players step into one of Audica’s mesmerizing cosmic arenas and shoot and smash targets to the beat of a hand-authored song. A flawless run with precise timing and accuracy will earn players one of the coveted spots on Audica’s global leaderboards.
With an expansive soundtrack that features tracks from household names, up-and-comers, and Harmonix originals, Audica maintains Harmonix’s reputation for delivering genre-defining soundtracks. Audica will feature a 30+ song soundtrack when it launches this fall.
Did you figure it was only a matter of time before Audica came to the PSVR? Do you think that having the limited soundtrack will harm this launch or just add more to the wallets of the developer? Will this be your entry into the VR space or will you be waiting just a bit longer? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. For more on Audica, as there is more, we will have it all here for you. Just be sure to keep checking back in for all of that and much more.
