Rocksmith 2014 isn’t really a new game: Ubisoft’s guitar title has already released on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 for a while, and now Ubisoft has announced that it’s bringing the game to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Rocksmith 2014 is a music game that actually helps players learn the guitar (or just jam for the fun of it), so it not just a Guitar Hero-like game for fun. Good news for us that it will launch on the PS4 on November 3. The game will be also upgraded with 1080p visuals and of course.
On PlayStation 4, Rocksmith 2014 Edition will also support Remote Play through PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system where players can view songs at a locked mastery level without any scoring or input required; this mode is perfect for players looking to review a song in its entirety without feedback, study specific sections of songs or practice in another room when it’s more convenient.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition comes with more than 50 tracks; there are currently more than 300 additional songs available for purchase, with new add-on content every week. For players making the jump to the latest consoles, DLC tracks can be imported across systems, from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 without having to repurchase content or pay additional licensing costs.
The game will also include a cable that plugs from a regular guitar and turns the analog signal into a digital one, making it possible to actually use a real guitar. Called the “Real Tone Cable”, it’s a unique 1/4″-to-USB cable developed exclusively for the game. Which means that having an actual electric guitar is a must.
