Harmonix has shared the first gameplay trailer for Amplitude, the upcoming revival of its genre-defining rhythm game.
The PlayStation Blog post sharing the trailer also provides details on a new feature: Team-based multiplayer. When looking at how to address the potential difference between player skill levels, uneven matchups that pit individual pros against multiple others came up as a flexible and party-friendly alternative to keep the strongest players in check.
Amplitude will be on display at PAX East 2015, running March 6 through 8, so anyone at the convention can stop by the Harmonix booth and give the game a spin. The game will also be featured in Penny Arcade’s Omegathon tournament alongside games of all genres and media on Saturday morning (March 7).
Amplitude completed its Kickstarter campaign just under the wire, closing a gap of over $100,000 in its last two days. It is the revival of a 2003 rhythm action game developed by Harmonix for PlayStation 2, before rhythm games became a widely popular genre.
Harmonix plans to release the new Amplitude to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 sometime in mid 2015.
