      The original article announcing its fall launch window follows below.

      Original Article (August 28th, 2019): Harmonix released the news on a PS blogpost, saying that Audica will arrive on the PSVR platform sometime this Fall.

      The studio says they will reveal more details surrounding exact date, price, and full soundtrack in the coming months (see update).

      At launch, Audica is said to include four arenas, a variety of blasters, a suite of customization options to personalize the gameplay experience, and a campaign taking you through the game’s 30+ song soundtrack.

      We had the opportunity to go deep in our first preview of the game before it hit Steam and the Oculus Store ($20) a few months ago. The studio has since pushed several quality of life updates and included more and more songs to its playable soundtrack.

      As the PlayStation platform doesn’t have any official Early Access program, we imagine Audica will likely launch out of Early Access on Steam/Oculus Store shortly afterwards.
