Sony has revealed several new artists that will be contributing to the soundtrack for Amplitude, the sequel to the rhythm game Frequency. POD, blink-182, Mekon, Freezepop, and Dieselboy will be joining a list of artists that already includes Garbage, Weezer, David Bowie, Quarashi, and Logan 7. Like Frequency, Amplitude will require players to tap buttons on the PlayStation 2 controller to match onscreen commands. The game will feature various online capabilities that will give players access to ladder rankings, chat rooms, and an option to participate in multiplayer or remix modes.
"With the combination of hip-hop, rock, electronica, and rap, these newly signed acts broaden the music roster for Amplitude while reaching out to new and existing fans of both the PlayStation 2 and the particular music act," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Amplitude offers a unique platform for both the band and us to present music in such a unique manner that players will feel one step closer to the artist as they create and remix music from their PlayStation 2 controller."
Amplitude is scheduled for release on March 24. For more information, check out our previous coverage.
