Rock Band 4 is coming back this year, and after going hands on with it, I have to say, it absolutely is what you remember. If you miss the franchise, this is that formula with a few extra tweaks for a new generation.
The game's setlist is currently growing with each announcement, and I remind you is only building on your purchased DLC from Rock Band 3, all of which is transferable. Here is a video announcing just a few of the songs Harmonix have put out there today.
The complete list of new songs from today's annoucements reads like this:
Aerosmith – "Toys in the Attic"
The Cure – "Friday I'm In Love"
Dream Theater – "Metropolis – Part 1 'The Miracle And The Sleeper'"
Foo Fighters – "The Feast and the Famine"
Judas Priest – "Halls Of Valhalla"
Live – "All Over You"
The Outfield – "Your Love"
Ozzy Osbourne – "Miracle Man"
Paramore – "Still Into You"
St. Vincent – "Birth In Reverse"
Van Morrison – "Brown Eyed Girl"
I have high hopes for Rock Band 4, and if you are ready to jump back in, Harmonix are bending over backwards to please you. This should feel comfortable when you touch it again, which is a nice proposition for a genre that has been gone for five years.
