In case you missed the news, Rocksmith is back, though this time in a rather big and different way. Introducing Rocksmith+, a whole new subscription based service announced at the Ubisoft Forward event that is set to bring the learning of music to everyone.
According to Ubisoft, the app that accompanies the service will not need extra devices as the phone’s microphone will be utilized. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced players will have access to a “huge amount of songs at launch” that includes their own chord charts to play along to. Songs range from rock, classic, indie, alternative, hip-hop, pop, metal, country, Latin, R&B, and more. Players can monitor their progress and can slow down parts that can be repeated and practiced.
Users can play with an acoustic guitar or an electric instrument and amp using the Rocksmith+ Connect mobile app, which offers phone-as-mic technology. By pairing their mobile device with their PC or console, the on-board microphone can track their guitar – allowing them to play with no additional gear needed.
Rocksmith+ will release in Summer of 2021 for Windows PC exclusively through the Ubisoft Store. Rocksmith+ will also launch on Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, and PS4 in Fall 2021. Rocksmith+ will be available on iOS and Android devices at a later date.
Registration for closed beta can be entered on their website.
