Whether it’s legacy DLC or a new song, each track in Rock Band 4 is “fully updated to include the new gameplay features in Rock Band 4. Players can rock to these tracks and enjoy new Freestyle Guitar Solos, Freestyle Vocals, and Dynamic Drums Fills, even while touring the world with their band in the game’s new expanded campaign.”

You can check out all the songs available for Rock Band 4 over on the PlayStation Store.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, Harmonix Associate Community Manager Criss Burki confirmed that “Rock Band Network tracks will not be available for re-download in Rock Band 4.”

Asked about exporting songs from previous Rock Band games, Burki said:

We have not left behind those songs on legacy Rock Band discs. If it was previously exported, it will be available to you for free re-download within the same console family as we make that content available. We continue to pursue more export options later on down the road!

In December, Harmonix will release a free update that adds variable breakneck speed. Then, in 2016, you’ll be able to buy instruments on their own.
