Rocksmith features gameplay that automatically adjusts to the player’s skill level, and will engage experienced musicians as well as those who are picking up a guitar for the first time. Players will be able to choose from actual lead, rhythm, and combo guitar compositions, inspiring players to perform songs after the game is turned off.
Ubisoft is using the Gamebryo engine to develop Rocksmith, the first and only game where players can use any real guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack and play through an in-depth library of music, ranging from top 40 to classic rock.
Rocksmith includes a unique quarter-inch to USB cable that is the first of its kind, allowing users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their favorite console; this revolutionary cable turns the guitar’s signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognized and played through a console or PC.
With the Rocksmith Bass Expansion, all 53 of the original on-disc tracks that feature bass, as well as any previous DLC purchased, are automatically updated and instantly available to play. Along with the ability to play the bass lines of favorite songs, bassists of all experience levels can improve their skills like 2-finger plucking, slapping, and popping with dedicated bass technique challenges, tutorial videos and mini-games. Players can even use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass. Tracking learning has never been easier as bass progression is tracked separately from guitar progression. Simply put, nothing compares to playing a real bass guitar.
Rocksmith Bass Expansion will be available on August 14, 2012 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 for $29.99.
