Adding a customizable learning curve, expanded practice tools, stat tracking, improved menus, and more, Rocksmith 2014 Edition Remastered releases on October 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Ubisoft announced today. The new version will retail for $59.99 USD, while current owners of Rocksmith 2014 Edition will get the remastered edition content as a free update on all platforms in October.
If you do end up buying Rocksmith 2014 Edition Remastered, you’ll receive more than 50 songs on disc, as well as these six bonus songs: Three Little Birds by Bob Marley & The Wailers, Suspicious Minds by Elvis Presley, Some Night by FUN., I Want You Back by Jackson 5, Hey Ya! by Outkast, and Drops of Jupiter by Train. Current owners of Rocksmith 2014 Edition can buy the six songs separately after downloading the free patch.
Ubisoft San Francisco Executive Producer Nao Higo said:
We are very proud the success Rocksmith has had in teaching nearly four million people how to play the guitar and bass. The Ubisoft San Francisco development team continues to add new songs to the extensive Rocksmith catalog, now more than 800 deep and support the game with new updates for Rocksmith’s loyal fans. With Rocksmith 2014 Edition – Remastered, we’ve improved the Rocksmith method, providing more powerful tools for players to tailor their own learning experience, making it easier than ever to learn how to play.
As Higo mentioned, there’s over 800 DLC songs available for purchase, and new songs are added every week.
