Okay, music fans, time to master a new instrument.
Today, Ubisoft has announced a Bass Expansion for the original and well-received Rocksmith ; the new DLC will be available on August 14, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and hold a price tag of $29.99.
With this new expansion, all 53 of the game's original on-disc tracks that feature bass, along with any DLC tracks you may have purchased, will be automatically updated and instantly available to play with a bass guitar. You'll be able to practice skills like 2-finger plucking, slapping, and popping thanks to "dedicated bass technique challenges, tutorial videos and mini-games." Players are allowed to use any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass, too, so this is a flexible addition.
Lest you forget, Rocksmith is the only game that lets you use any real guitar or bass with a standard 1/4" input jack. You can go through a big library of songs and really hone your ability; this ain't nothin' like Guitar Hero or Rock Band . This is for people who actually want to be musicians.
