Harmonix has announced a release date for its successfully crowdfunded game Amplitude.
The game will be made available worldwide through the PlayStation Store on PS4 come January 5 and will run you $19.99. The PS3 version “will follow shortly behind.”
It features over 30 songs, really nice visuals, and a “concept album approach” to its narrative storytelling.
Amplitude contains both a single player campaign – which has a sci-fi vibe to it – along with competitive and cooperative local multiplayer modes. It also contains leaderboards.
The soundtrack includes music crafted by Harmonix’s in-house composers, as well as songs from video game composers such as Darren Korb (Transistor), C418 (Minecraft), Danny B (Crypt of the Necrodancer), and Jim Guthrie (Below).
Tracks created by the game’s backers are also included such as one from Insomniac Games (Ratchet & Clank) and the Lab Zero (Skullgirls).
Kickstarter supporters who backed at the $40 tier or higher will be able to download the game on December 23.
