After nearly a 4 year absence ‘Rock Band’ is finally set to return for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Rumors of the game’s return spring up earlier this year when video game developer Harmonix added a handful of new songs to the library with titles that seemed to hint at a rebirth like, Tenacious D’s “Rise of the Fenix” and Weezer’s “Back to the Shack.” The company has now confirmed that the game will return later this year.
While Harmonix is planning a number of updates to the game, they’re working closely with Sony and Microsoft to insure that any instrument sets bought for the game’s Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 editions will be compatible with the new version. The same goes for the libraries of songs built up over the years. Which is good news for lovers of “Rock Band” the world over.
Harmonix is expected to announce more details about Rock Band 4 at this year’s E3 expo, which takes place June 16th to 18th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Check out the full story courtesy of Rolling Stone here.
