From Press Release:
Boston – November 5, 2019 – AUDICA™, the popular VR “rhythm shooter” from Harmonix, has exited Early Access and is available now for PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift Platform, Steam and VIVEPORT for $29.99. AUDICA combines Harmonix’s award-winning music gameplay with precision shooting mechanics and a 33-song soundtrack featuring music from some of the world’s most popular artists.
Armed with a pair of rhythm blasters, players step into one of AUDICA’s mesmerizing cosmic arenas and shoot and smash targets to the beat of a hand-authored song. A flawless run with precise timing and accuracy will earn players one of the coveted spots on AUDICA’s global leaderboards.
With an expansive soundtrack that features tracks from household names, up-and-comers, and Harmonix originals, AUDICA maintains Harmonix’s reputation for delivering genre-defining soundtracks.
In addition to the soundtrack, five additional playable songs will be available for purchase as day one DLC:
- 5 Seconds of Summer – “Youngblood”

Campaign Mode – AUDICA’s campaign mode will see players take on the entire soundtrack across four tiers.

Players who complete the campaign will be rewarded with new blasters, environments and a very special grand finale.
Practice Mode – A fully-featured practice mode that enables players to pick specific song sections, slow them down and practice until they know it like the back of their blaster.
Map Creator – AUDICA also includes an in-game Map Creator, giving players the ability to create their own custom target map for any song on the soundtrack.
Leaderboards – Nail full combos and blast your way to the top of the song and game leaderboards
