Amplitude Remake Gets First Prototype Footage
Amplitude HD is a reboot of the original Amplitude released back in 2003 for PS2. This is the first time we are properly laying eyes on how the game looks and plays. Creative lead Ryan Lesser showed a prototype demo of the game with a latest Kickstarter update.
The game was shown at PAX to some of the backers and in this video, Lesser showed the progress Amplitude has made since then. There are four difficulty levels to choose from including mellow, normal, brutal and insane.
Devs at Harmonix recently tuned the camera, speed and timing to be similar to the original PS2 title and the game now played much better with these changes. As you can see in the video above, Amplitude HD is being played on a PC but will soon run on actual hardware, which is PS3 and PS4.
If you remember Amplitude on PS2 had convex tracks, but according to Ryan Lesser, this reboot will switch from convex to concave randomly for an interesting experience while you’re playing. Furthermore, the developers are experimenting with more “aggressive twists.”
Amplitude for PS4 and PS3 is set for a 2015 release and if you have something to say about the game, share your opinions and views with us in the comments below!
