Ubisoft’s Rocksmith series of games are widely known for its tutorial-style gameplay to teach people how to play the guitar. The series has been running for a long while, and even though it isn’t as widely popular, the series has its niche following.
While the last PC release for the game was Rocksmith 2014 remastered, Ubisoft is gearing up to launch a new title in the series. Through a press release, the company announced Rocksmith Plus launching this September 6th on PC.
Originally announced in June 2021, the music-learning subscription service teaches users how to play acoustic, electric and bass guitars. The original game helped teach playing the guitar to more than five million people worldwide.
The new subscription service will provide users with an expert, 360-degree approach. Some key points are:
- Players will be able to learn how to play the guitar through master recordings of songs from Sony Music, Universal and more, and will have access to an expanding library of more than 5,000 songs at launch, with new songs added each week. The service will feature music across a variety of genres such as Rock, Metal, Pop, etc.
- Rocksmith plus features a suite of new and improved practice tools to give players a fun, personalised experience at any skill level. For example, the Adaptive Difficulty feature will dynamically adjust to one’s skill level while one plays, introducing new notes and chords as the player progresses.
- The game also introduces the free Connect app, a phone-as-a-mic feature on iOS and Android that will let players connect to the title on PC. Players will benefit from its note detection and real-time feedback without needing any peripherals. The app works with acoustic and electric instruments played through an amp – or players can connect their equipment with the Rocksmith Real Tone cable.
- Players can hone their skills with interactive lessons and practice recommendations that the service generates based on their goals, skill level and progress.
- In addition to learning and improving their mechanics, players will also have video lessons available ranging from proper technique, gear, instrument care, music appreciation, and more through Rocksmith Discover.
Rocksmith Plus will be available for £12.99 for a 1-month subscription, £34.99 for a 3-
