'Rock Band Blitz' (ALL) Gets A Companion On Facebook

Designed for use with a standard controller, Rock Band Blitz is beat-match gameplay evolved ... no instrument peripherals required!

Rock Band Blitz is a new way to experience your favorite Rock Band songs, with fast-paced, multi-track arcade gameplay that encourages you to compete against your friends for the highest scores. Use insane power-ups like the note-obliterating Bottle Rocket or the Pinball strategically to boost your scores and top the leaderboards!

Rock Band Blitz features over 20 tracks new to the Rock Band franchise, including Blink-182’s “Always,” Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks,” Quiet Riot’s “Metal Health (Bang Your Head),” and Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl.”  Rock Band Blitz is also compatible with most of your existing Rock Band Music Library, including all content from the Rock Band Music Store, as well as tracks exported from Rock Band, Rock Band 2, and more. As a bonus, all of the tracks that come with Rock Band Blitz are immediately playable in Rock Band 3 at no extra charge, so you can get the band back together and play Rock Band Blitz’s 20-plus new tracks in Harmonix’s award-winning full-band game!

Rock Band World is a brand new full-featured companion application that will allow players to collaborate and compete with other Rock Band fans using the world’s largest social network! Players can work alone, team up with friends, or band together with the Rock Band community to complete Goals. Rockers can also directly challenge their friends (or rivals!) to Score Wars to see who’s got the best Rock Band Blitz chops!

“When designing Rock Band World we wanted to extend the player experience beyond the console in exciting new and social ways,” said Project Director Matthew Nordhaus. “By letting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players link both Rock Band Blitz and Rock Band 3 to their large, already established social network, we’re opening up some great opportunities for competitive and collaborative gameplay. We can’t wait to start engaging the community with weekly Goals, and we look forward to seeing how fierce competition can get with Rock Band Blitz Score Wars!”

Rock Band World adds new ways to play for Rock Band Blitz players, but also adds value for fans of Rock Band 3! Players will be able to browse the 3800+ song Rock Band catalog, get detailed statistics on their own in-game performance, and much more!
