Ubisoft has announced a release date for rock smith+ along with information about the game’s subscription service.
This is the sequel to the best-selling Rocksmith that taught over 5 million people how to play the guitar, including his own.
Announced in June 2021, the music learning subscription service teaches you to play acoustic, electric and bass guitar through various songs. The service will be available for £12.99 for a one-month subscription, £34.99 for a three-month subscription, and £84.99 for an annual subscription.
For returning Rocksmith players, Rocksmith+ will have a loyalty offer for Rocksmith 2014 owners and Closed Beta participants who purchase a three or 12 month Rocksmith+ subscription. If you fall into either category, you’ll get bonus time on your first billing cycle, one month free for those who purchase a three-month plan, and three months free for those who purchase a 12-month plan.
The subscription service can run on 10-year-old Windows 10 laptops and will also be available on mobile later this year.
The game will be able to use your mobile phone as a microphone to pick up your guitar and bass in real time through the Rocksmith+ Connect app. The service will add new songs and features over time and promises “more music than ever.”
When it comes to the learning process, the game provides real-time feedback and video lessons on everything from proper technique, equipment, instrument care, music appreciation and more through Rocksmith Discover. You can look forward to interactive lessons and even practical tips.
Rocksmith+ features master recordings of songs from Sony Music, Universal and more, and you’ll have access to an expanding library of over 5,000 songs at launch, with new songs added every week from artists like The Clash, Juan Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Santana , and more. Genres will include Rock, Metal, Pop, Latin, Hip-Hop and Indie from countries around the world.
The learning game features a set of new and improved practice tools that promise to give you a fun and personalized experience at any skill level. For example, the adaptive difficulty feature dynamically adjusts to your skill level as you play, introducing new notes and chords as you go. The technology adapts to your skill levels by measuring the sum total of your skills rather than the performance of an individual song.
It also features note detection and real-time feedback without the need for peripherals. The phone app works with acoustic and electric instruments played through an amp, or you can connect your electric instruments with the Rocksmith Real Tone cable, sold separately. There’s also the Rocksmith+ Connect app that doubles as a professional-grade, accurate guitar tuner.
