Ubisoft has announced a Remastered Edition of guitar-skill-aiding software package Rocksmith 2014, and confirmed that existing owners will get all the improvements in a free patch. Rocksmith 2014 Remastered Edition is expected in October 2016, and the patch will be coming around the same time.
It’ll be the same game in many ways, but with “additional improvements and redesigned features”. Things like being able to manage your song library with sort functions, and “Pause and navigate freely through entire tracks in Riff Repeater”. The song library in Remastered will remain the same, though the retail edition will come with a voucher from some new, six-song DLC.
Here’s what’s changing in Rocksmith 2014 Remastered.
· Manage your song library using updated Search, Sort, and Filter tools
· Search by artist or song name in Learn a Song, Score Attack, and the Shop—just enter the desired text with your keyboard or game controller
· Build custom Song Lists in Nonstop Play to group songs for personalized practice sessions
· Pause and navigate freely through entire tracks in Riff Repeater, and loop phrases more efficiently
· View all song arrangements from the improved Song Hub, and launch directly into any of them without changing paths
· Filter your Nonstop Play list by tuning, and switch between all available arrangements between songs
· Customize the rate of Dynamic Difficulty adjustments, or disable the feature altogether
· Track your progress with detailed in-game player statistics
And here are the six songs that’ll be available as DLC when the new edition is released/patched.
· Bob Marley & The Wailers – Three Little Birds
· Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds
· FUN. – Some Nights
· Jackson 5 – I Want You Back
· Outkast – Hey Ya!
· Train – Drops Of Jupiter
