Survios’ next VR title, Electronauts now set to launch on August 7th. The game will be available on SteamVR (Vive and Rift) and Oculus Home (Rift) priced at $20, and on PlayStation VR priced at $18.

Electronauts is the latest title to come from Survios, the studio behind Raw Data and Sprint VectorElectronauts isn’t a game as much as it is a music making tool designed to let you express your musical creativity even if you don’t know anything about making music. With the game’s ‘Music Reality Engine’, a lot of the complexity of mixing awesome beats is handled for you, letting novices jump in easily.

At the same time, the game feels like it offers a lot of depth, letting players toggle individual instruments within backing tracks, record repeating melodies and FX changes, and jam out on futuristic instruments with or without beat quantization (which keeps everything on tempo)—oh and don’t forget the sound grenades. Here’s a look at what it’s like to make your own jam:

On PC, Electronauts supports multiplayer with up to two players for a cooperative jam session; crossplay is supported too, meaning Oculus Home and SteamVR players can play together. PSVR will not include a multiplayer mode, Survios has confirmed.

      Survios = quality, RAW DATA is still one of the best VR games ever created in my opinion… i’m eagerly waiting for this game and see if it get’s the hype as of beat saber, because the potential here is huge… it can maybe replace modern dj’s… we’ll see :)

        Very true, “replace modern DJs” haha, I thought the ipod already did that ;P . I’m definitely going to check it out on the 7th.

    Are there any synths? Or just pre-programmed samples?
