WHAT: Ubisoft announced today that Rocksmith Bass Expansion, a content
add-on for Rocksmith, will be available on August 14, 2012 on the Xbox 360
console and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system for $29.99.
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 is the first and only video game where players can plug any real
guitar or bass with a standard 1/4" input jack into an Xbox 360 video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system
or PC and play through an in-depth library of music including everything from
the latest hits to classic rock songs.
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.
