Cambridge, MA – September 5th, 2014 – Harmonix is excited to announce “Harmonix Music VR,” an all new virtual reality music experience, will be coming to Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus.
“Harmonix Music VR” transports you to a fully immersive, music-driven dreamscape allowing you to experience your tunes like never before. It uses Harmonix’s proprietary Music Analysis Engine to generate a song-specific, high-resolution event sequence that drives the reactive elements in your virtual world. Sit back and relax, taking in the vibrant, musically responsive environment, or explore for even more audio visualizations set to your own tracks.
“Harmonix has always been interested in creating fundamentally new ways for people to interact with music,” says studio CEO Steve Janiak. “There’s an incredible amount of potential for this with virtual reality, and ‘Harmonix Music VR’ is just one way we can deliver on these types of innovative experiences. We can’t wait to hear what people think about this new way to experience the music they love.”
“Harmonix Music VR” will be available alongside Samsung’s Gear VR when it launches later this year.
