Guitar manufacturer Gibson has announced the next game in Ubisoft‘s Rocksmith series, hours ahead of its official reveal at Ubisoft’s E3 presentation.
According to an email newsletter sent to Gibson customers, Rocksmith+ is a new version of the game that comes with a subscription model giving players a growing library of songs to learn.
The newsletter also states that a closed beta for the PC version will be launching today.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has officially revealed the third game in the Rocksmith series.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES:
“Over the past 10 years, nearly 5 million people have learned how to play guitar and bass using the award-winning Rocksmith Method,” the newsletter reads.
“Now they’re making it even easier with Rocksmith+, an interactive music learning subscription service that takes the guesswork out of music mastery. This new version also lets you rock out with your favourite Gibson, Epiphone, and Kramer models.
“Even the world’s premier music learning software needs fine-tuning. So they’re inviting you to test it out free and make Rocksmith+ even better. Pick up your acoustic, electric, or bass guitar, and register for the Rocksmith+ PC closed beta today, where you’ll get early access to exclusive features like:
- Realtime Feedback – Connect your instrument for accurate note detection
- Riff Repeater – Control song speeds so you can practice at your own pace
- An Expansive Library – Choose from a vast and ever-growing library of songs”
Rocksmith+ is likely to be revealed at the Ubisoft Forward presentation later today.
