At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft
announced Rocksmith 2014 Edition
, the next installment of the hit Rocksmith brand due to be available in October for PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360. A new fully customizable "Riff Repeater" lets players select any section of a song they want to play, and adjust the difficulty and speed on-the-fly. A new "Master Mode" makes playing by memory more approachable and new "Guitarcade" mini-games have been created to hone specific guitar skills.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition also features a new track list with more than 50 hit tracks, including Stone by Alice In Chains, Walk This Way by Aerosmith, Knockin' On Heaven's Door by Bob Dylan, The Chimera by The Smashing Pumpkins, Don't Look Back In Anger by Oasis, and ultra soul by B'z, a famous pop-rock Japanese band.
On stage at E3, Ubisoft demonstrated Session Mode, a groundbreaking technology that enables players of any skill level to play guitar with a virtual band that jams along with them. Players can select the style of music and the particular instruments they'd like to accompany them and the rest happens dynamically, adapting live while they play. Three screenshots
and a video have been inserted in our download area.
