Watch us explore an interactive island of visual music in Harmonix Music VR

Last week, we took a brief reprieve from the E3 2016 show floor and visited a nearby hotel suite to check out an early build of Harmonix Music VR, a PlayStation VR title expected to launch alongside the PSVR hardware this October. The game, built around experiencing your own personal music collection in a virtual reality environment, consists of four worlds — yesterday, we showed you an extended look at The Trip, a psychedelic, laid-back music visualizer that happens to be the least interactive of Harmonix Music VR's offerings.

Today, we're taking a look at The Beach, a lightly interactive, controller-free experience that involves relaxing on a music-reactive beach, navigating and interacting with objects by pointing your gaze with the PlayStation VR headset. Above, watch us test out with "After Night," a song from musicians NΣΣT and Voyager.

For more from Harmonix Music VR, check out the below video of The Trip, and stay tuned throughout the week as we look at all four of the game's modes.
