Rock Band 4 Getting Its First Patch Soon, Will Address PS4 Livestream Issues and More

Harmonix has announced that its recently released title, Rock Band 4, will be receiving its first update during the last week of October. While the developer didn’t give an exact release date, it did share a list of planned fixes, which address a PlayStation 4 livestream audio support issue among various other bugs. The full list is as follows:

– Character Stand-ins: we fixed this issue; players who build custom band members can also have their band appear across all game modes (Shows, Quickplay, Career)

– PS4 Streaming Audio Support: we are fixing the issue with song audio for live streaming on the PS4

– 5.1 crowd audio support: we are making a change to add more ambience and crowd audio to the surround channels, similar to what we’ve done in previous versions of Rock Band

Various bug fixes:

– Fixed an issue where Beatles guitars would not auto-calibrate

– Fixed an issue where character previews might pop-up in the overshell during gameplay

– Fixed a font issue with certain symbols in lyrics

– Fixed a lefty-flip cymbal issue with GH drums

– Fixed an issue where playing some songs with intentional missing parts would result in a crash

– Fixed an issue on PS4 where users with more than 2,000 Friends are unable to view in-game leaderboards

Full patch notes will be revealed nearer the time. 

Harmonix also said that it will be releasing further details about the previously announced title update due out this December, as well as providing information about the availability of DLC exports.
