[UPDATED] Getting the Band Back Together – Rockband 4 Announced


UPDATE: Harmonix will allow PAX East 2015 attendees a chance to pre-order an exclusive Penny Arcade themed guitar at their booth (#4224). Picture below in the gallery.

I knew there had to be a reason Harmonix just started putting up songs in the Rockband Store suddenly after 5 months of not updating it. It was just a sign of things to come! ROCKBAND 4 IS COMING!!!!

Rock Band, the award-winning social and interactive music performance experience, is back! Form your own band, rock the world, and live out your ultimate rock and roll fantasy, with your friends, family, or as a solo act. Rock Band 4 delivers the ultimate platform for gamers to experience music, giving players the chance to rock in the shoes of the biggest guitarists, bassists, drummers, and singers of all time. Rock Band 4 delivers the most authentic music game ever, challenging rockers to master lead guitar, bass guitar, drums, and vocals.

Continuing in the tradition of the series, the music featured in Rock Band 4spans all genres of rock and includes many hits from legendary artists. Additionally, players will be able to draw from the 2000+ songs available as downloadable content (DLC) in the Rock Band Music Store. Never before have players had access to such a large and varied library of playable songs. Further, players can re-download any previously purchased DLC from theirRock Band DLC libraries at no additional cost.*

That’s right. Later this year, Rock Band™ 4 comes to Xbox One™ and PlayStation®4, and it will support all your previously purchased downloadable content (aka YOUR MUSIC) as we release them on next gen consoles!

I was a huge player of Rockband and I still have a trunk full of plastic instruments that are ready to be dusted off. We will bring you more Rockband news as it comes in, in the meantime get your vocal chords warmed up!
