In yet another contender for weirdest Harmonix/Rock Band cross over of 2015, #IDARB, a chaotic 2D sports game, is set to launch as a downloadable title for the Xbox One on February 1 as part of the Games with Gold promotion, and will feature a familiar team for Rock Band fans:
The Harmonix team in #IDARB, pictured above, features eight Rock Band instruments that you can play as. No, that’s not a typo. You can literally jump around the playing field scoring goals as a Rock Band microphone. This team is included automatically in the base game, so there’s nothing needed to download, though you can easily find more than enough characters to add to the game if you want more.
You can learn more about #IDARB at their official site, and if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member with an Xbox One, be sure to pick it up on February 1 at no additional cost through Games with Gold.
This week’s DLC features two Rock Band mainstays in Avenged Sevenfold and Foo Fighters and the debut of British indie megastars Arctic Monkeys! Included below is the review, as well as playthrough videos of the DLC from the super awesome RBTeamAftermath. Definitely check out and subscribe to their YouTube channel!
All tracks are $1.99.
It’s been way too long, hasn’t it?
Rock Band isn’t the only Harmonix game to get a DLC announcement today, as Dance Central: Spotlight will also be adding another legacy song to its ever expanding catalog tomorrow, per the Dance Central Twitter account:
- Nelly – Hot In Herre
Tomorrow we'll be adding "Hot In Herre" by Nelly to Dance Central Spotlight!
