Ubisoft has revealed the third game in the Rocksmith series.
Rocksmith+ will offer a subscription service, meaning players can pay a regular fee to access a library of songs rather than buying individual tracks as DLC.
Players can connect their guitar to the game via either a cable or a phone app. This means players will be able to use an acoustic guitar for the first time.
The game also includes video tutorials and a community forum.
The new version includes realtime feedback, with accurate note detection telling players whether they’re playing correctly, as well as the ability to repeat riffs and control song speed so they can play at their own pace.
The original Rocksmith was released in 2011 and taught players how to play a real guitar by letting them plug it directly into their system via a USB dongle.
Its successor, Rocksmith 2014, added paths for lead, rhythm and bass guitar and let players choose difficulty levels for each song.
Both games had a huge library of DLC songs, with over 1400 tracks eventually made available.
It’s assumed that the subscription service will replace this DLC, meaning players will get every track for a set regular price.
Rocksmith+ was leaked early by guitar manufacturer Gibson, who emailed its customers with news about the game.
“Over the past 10 years, nearly 5 million people have learned how to play guitar and bass using the award-winning Rocksmith Method,” Gibson’s email newsletter read.
“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.”
