Harmonix Announces First Major Rockband 4 Update


Harmonix has announced that they are working on the first major update for their upcoming title, Rockband 4. The update which is scheduled to be released December 8th, will be free for all. This major update will feature social and competitive modes, and a few surprises. Also being added due to fan feedback is Variable Breakneck Speeds, which allows players control the note scrolling speeds for all tracks.

“With the core game already shipping to retailers for an October 6 launch, we’re excited to start looking at the future of Rock Band for our fans,” said Harmonix CEO Steve Janiak. “We already have a team hard at work building new features for the platform, some based on player feedback, along with some surprises, including a new mode that changes gameplay in a really significant way that we think people are going to love.”

“We’ve said that we’re viewing Rock Band 4 as a platform that we will build on over time,” added Product Manager Daniel Sussman, “and this first feature update is just the beginning; we can’t wait to share more details after launch.”

Rockband 4 is scheduled for release October 6th, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
