Harmonix Wants Your Help To Make Amplitude HD For PS3, PS4

By   /   May 5, 2014

Harmonix, the current leading studio in the Rhythm Genre, have started a kickstarter for their remake of the Playstation 2 classic rhythm title Amplitude.

The indie studio has secured $39,000 out of their goal of $775,000 as of now. The new game will make use of the experience gained over the years and provide accurate ‘beat-matching’ which the studio perfected with Rock Band; the game will run on Harmonix’s new engine that has been developed over the last 10 years.

The new engine will allow ‘better control over timing windows whilst running at 60FPS, the game is also set to include a single player and multiplayer mode as well as online leader boards.

Currently, Harmonix aims at an HD remake rather a sequel; the game will release on the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 if the target goal is achieved. The original Amplitude is the sequel to Frequency on the Playstation 2.

In the game, players control a ship called Beat Blaster, which runs on a track that plays a single instrument; Guitar, Drums, Vocals and more, after the player has managed to destroy the gems in the way which then continues to play the note as the player switches to another track, the objective of the game is to build the music by clearing lanes before the next section arrives.

Harmonix is also working on Chroma, their first free-to-play first person shooter in conjunction with Hidden Path Entertainment, who worked on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
