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.
