Ian goes hands on with Audica, Harmonix’s new rhythm shooter for VR
Beat Saber is an honest-to-goodness VR masterpiece that recently became one of the first VR games in the world to have sold over 1 million copies.
The core mechanic; chopping virtual blocks with virtual swords to a pumping soundtrack is as simple as it is brilliant and if I’m demoing VR to a newcomer, Beat Saber is always top of the pile. This is mainly due to how incredible it feels to play but also because it’s just so easy to get to grips with. And I mean, come on, a game that lets you wield lightsabers like some kind of badass, drum ‘n’ bass Jedi? How could that not be the height of awesomeness?
Obviously the phenomenal success of Beat Saber was bound to spawn imitators sooner or later, so who better to try its hand at some VR rhythm action than Harmonix, the company behind Guitar Hero, Rockband and Dance Central.
