It’s been several months since we last heard from Harmonix regarding its fan-funded cult classic, Amplitude. With GDC going on this week and Pax East right around the corner, the developer thought now would be a good time to pull back the veil of secrecy just a bit more.
In a blog post published on PlayStation.Blog, Harmonix art director Ryan Lesser reveals some new information regarding Amplitude. One new feature that will be coming to Amplitude is multiplayer, which is a first for the series. Amplitude will allow a classic Free-For-All Multiplayer mode as well as a Team Play mode to be played, both of which Harmonix is hoping will be fun to play during a party as well as potentially be used within a competitive gaming scene.
In addition to its reveal of multiplayer in Amplitude, Harmonix has also published the first gameplay trailer of the game in action. Fans of the original Amplitude will certainly feel at home with the looks and gameplay mechanics of the new version. The video also gives us a glimpse of some of the multiplayer mayhem we can expect when the game releases some time later this year.

Never thought I would say this... but its looks sort of bad or under whelming.
I would rather fire up Rock Band and play my drums or guitar not only does Rock Band look visually better I rather play my instruments then press buttons on the controller.
Also if I need a space ship fix which this triggers a bit I would rather boot up Wipeout HD & Fury(which are amazing) on my PS3 I don't really know its just not doing it for me that vid sure didn't sell it.
This is one of those games i thought already came out a year or two ago. Hasn't this been in development for a long time?
