Ubisoft have released a new gameplay video for the forthcoming Rocksmith 2014, which is due out in 2013 because that’s how game names work.
Said video contains four minutes of footage explaining how it – and the new modes – work, and it sounds like a pretty big improvement over the original. There are a whole host of new lessons to teach you specifics, a Mission Mode that gives you specific goals which’ll help you improve your performance on songs, an updated Master Mode that fades out sections of the song that you can play well (meaning you gradually learn how to play from memory), an advanced Riff Repeater and modes to help you learn songs, intelligence that works out which bits you’re having trouble with and figures out what lessons and exercises you should do to improve on those sections…
There’s a lot, basically. Check out the trailer below for the full lowdown, and bear in mind that Rocksmith 2014 is due out in October.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
