Introducing the next stage in the evolution of the guitar game. Rocksmith is the first and only game where your controller is any real guitar.
Nothing plastic. Nothing fake. Just the most authentic guitar experience in music gaming. By plugging into your console, you’ll develop real skills and real styles while playing real music. Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, and innovative game design that makes playing music visually intuitive, Rocksmith will engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar before in their life.
You’ll unlock mini games to hone specific skills. You’ll be able to choose from a large catalogue of songs in different styles. And you’ll experience it all with an actual guitar. Nothing compares to playing a real guitar. Except playing Rocksmith.
- When we say any guitar we mean any guitar. Whether it’s the guitar sitting in your attic that you have forgotten about up till now, or the guitar you are yet to buy, Rocksmith lets you plug any guitar into your Xbox 360 or PlayStation®3 system. As long as your guitar has a jack, you can play. No jack on your guitar? Head down to your local music store, get an inexpensive pickup, and problem solved.
- Difficulty settings that adapt to your ability. You love a challenge, but hate being overwhelmed. Rocksmith understands this, and knows exactly how far to push to keep you entertained and addicted. With dozens of difficulty levels, you will automatically progress from single notes to complex chords without getting in over your head.
- Lots of music. Lots of styles. One of the most satisfying moments for any guitar player is hearing yourself play your favourite song for the first time. Rocksmith has amassed an amazing library of songs from different music genres allowing players to experience those moments first hand.
- Play songs instead of just learning them. You want to play new songs, but you don't want to wade through guitar tabs or cringe through poorly produced tutorial videos. No problem. Rocksmith will not only present you with new songs, but will also challenge you to step away from the notes on screen and play songs from memory. Imagine that. A video game that will prepare you for international rock-stardom.
Still on the fence about Ubisoft's ambitious music game Rocksmith, which uses real guitars and claims to teach genuine musical skills? If you're heading to a music festival this year, you'll get the chance to try it for yourself and see if the promises hold up.
The double-decker Rocksmith bus will be touring Europe's biggest outdoor music events all summer, offering the chance to get hands on with the game. If you think your fingers are up to the job, there'll be multiplayer challenges with guitars to be won. Acts such as Eric Clapton, Blur, The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age and The Rolling Stones have all supplied tracks for the game.
First up is a stop at the Isle of Wight festival on the weekend of 22nd to 24th of June. It'll then head off through France, Italy and Germany before returning to our shores for Reading Festival (24th - 26th August) and Bestival (6th - 9th September).
Rocksmith was launched last year in America, where it's been warmly received by musicians and gamers alike. It's European launch was held up by a lawsuit from a UK band called Rocksmith, who claimed the game infringed their copyright.
The groundbreaking title sets itself apart from previous music games by allowing players to plug in actual electric guitars to use as controllers, with the game offering a crash course in real guitar-playing skills.
Featuring tracks from the likes of Blur, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Muse and many more artists besides, Rocksmith has a flexible difficulty curve and teaches users how to play guitar in a fun and engaging way.
The game can be purchased on its own or in a special bundle that includes a fully-functioning Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar, created by iconic instrument manufacturer Gibson.
Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and chief executive officer of Gibson, said: "Rocksmith provides a new and exciting opportunity for fans of all musical abilities to pursue their dreams - and actually learn how to play."
The game has been available in the US since October 2011 and has proven a critically acclaimed success, with the UK version set to contain bonus content not seen in the American release.
Rocksmith, Ubisoft's upcoming entry in the music game genre, has already attracted attention for its bold and clever decision to use actual real guitars as controllers. The idea is that unlike Rock Band and Guitar Hero, by playing Rocksmith you'll learn to play for real.
Now Ubisoft has announced that the game will receive an update that enables it to work with bass guitars as well. If you don't have a bass, it'll allow you to practice on a normal six-string guitar, played as a bass. Special bassline tracks have been added to all 53 songs in the game, as well as all the songs available to download separately, and there'll be new tutorial videos to get you started.
Rocksmith has been out in the US since last year, but is only reaching UK shores now following a legal challenge from a British band which shares the game's name.
Rocksmith goes on sale from September 14th, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The team at GAME have already been giving it a bash.
