This is happening.
Today is the day that Rock Band fans have been awaiting for years. While users scramble to get their instruments together (new and old), and to try to get their old DLC songs ready to go, the first new DLC songs for 'Rock Band 4' have hit the Rock Band Music Store.
These new songs are priced at $1.99 a piece, and in keeping with Harmonix history, the mix is is pretty wild in a rock way.
New tracks available for download on Xbox One and PlayStation®4 on October 6 include:
All That Remains – "Divide"
All That Remains – "What If I Was Nothing"
BABYMETAL – "Gimme Chocolate!!"
Blitz Kids – "Run For Cover"
Bring Me The Horizon – "Throne"
Dead Sara – "Mona Lisa"
Duran Duran – "The Reflex"
Earth, Wind & Fire – "September"
Interpol – "All The Rage Back Home"
Janis Joplin – "Move Over"
Jefferson Starship – "Jane"
Linkin Park ft. Daron Malakian – "Rebellion"
Marilyn Manson – "The Mephistopheles Of Los Angeles"
Mastodon – "High Road"
My Morning Jacket – "One Big Holiday"
Of Mice & Men – "Would You Still Be There"
Oh Honey – "Sugar, You"
Pantera – "Cowboys From Hell (Live From Monsters In Moscow Festival)"
Pierce The Veil ft. Kellin Quinn – "King for a Day"
Seasick Steve – "Summertime Boy"
“Weird Al” Yankovic – "My Own Eyes"
The Wild Feathers – "Backwoods Company"
Here is the new game in action:
Users should be warned that the volume of DLC songs, (new and old) is a challenge for PSN and Xbox Live. This launch day has a bit of madness to it, but as users have been waiting so long to get the band back together on the new platforms, that these early hiccups ought to be taken in stride.
The PS4 version of 'RB4' is compatible with most of the old PS3 instruments (and even the PS2 ones!)
The Xbox One side needs a little help in the form of the Legacy Controller Adapter:
Since the Xbox One needs an adapter in order for players to use their old 360 instruments, buying an adapter plus disc bundle makes sense for many players. That bundle can be ordered here for $79.99. The full list of compatible Xbox 360 controllers/instruments can be found here. Other choices include the guitar bundle or the full band bundle. There are also disc only options (see here).
