'Audica' Announced, Early Access Next Month - Screens & Trailer

Audica is a VR rhythm shooter that combines Harmonix's music gameplay with precision shooting mechanics and a killer soundtrack featuring songs from some of the world's most popular electronic artists.

Armed with a pair of rhythm blasters, players step into Audica’s mesmerizing cosmic arena and shoot and smash targets to the beat of a hand-authored song. A flawless run with precise timing, accuracy and form will earn players one of the coveted spots on Audica’s global leaderboards.

Audica is incredibly intuitive and immersive from the first time you play - use your blue and orange blasters to shoot color-coded targets to the beat while in a breathtaking cosmic arena. On expert difficulty, Audica gameplay is intense and exacting. If you want to claim a spot at the top of the leaderboards, you’ll need to practice until you and your blasters become one, performing a tightly choreographed ballet of beat-blasting brilliance.

With an electronic 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 10 playable songs with four difficulties each when it debuts in Early Access on March 7 and will launch for full commercial release with a 25+ song soundtrack later this year.

The first songs confirmed to be on the Audica soundtrack are:

  • 1788-L & Blanke “Destiny”
  • Alison Wonderland “I Want U”
  • Donna Summer “I Feel Love (Afrojack Remix)”
  • James Egbert “The Space”
  • Savant “Splinter”

Audica will be available March 7 in Early Access on both Steam and Oculus Store for $19.99.

Over the course of Early Access, players will have the opportunity to shape Audica’s development including song selection, authoring and the development of new features and mechanics. Audica is expected to exit Early Access this fall.
