Rock Band E3 Details Revealed!

Rivals

E3 has opened the floor, so news has started to come out from places that aren’t publisher press conferences. Harmonix has revealed details on PDP hardware and a taste of the fall Expansion Pack/Season Pass.

For the Expansion Pack, it is now called Rock Band Rivals, strongly implying it will be brimming with content for competition(including online play before the end of the year, of course!).

With Rock Band Rivals, the Rock Band team has been flexing their creative muscles to produce something truly unique. For the launch of the expansion, we’re going to be bringing you brand new features that have never been seen in Rock Band before. These are really big, new modes to the game, and players of all difficulties and play styles will be able to enjoy what we’re cooking up for you. We can’t wait to share more about Rock Band Rivals in the near future.

Remember, this isn’t just ONE thing, it’s the big fall expansion, plus the meat of several other updates as we head into 2017! It’ll run you $30 in the US, with alternate currency rates to be revealed later. Also, since it’s digital content, it won’t be a terrible dollar conversion like hardware could be sometimes. Speaking of hardware, we’ve also got a meaty chunk of PDP news.

 

Jaguar
A beautiful Jaguar is our new model of Fender. We’ve got a sync button on the front, presumably a dedicated OD button(there’s a very familiarly located ‘bar’ button by the whammy), and the thing FOLDS. It. FOLDS. Practical. Probably even a smaller box to deal with when you order one.

The Fender Jaguar Guitar Controller comes with all the basics you’d expect: upper frets for classic gameplay, and solo frets for the daring shredders out there. It’s got a highly sensitive tilt sensor for perfect Overdrive deployment, and an improved strum bar for increased precision at high speeds. The auto-calibration light sensor allows less ambient light than previous guitars, which means auto-calibrating is more accurate and will get you playing faster. Aside from all of the classic features this new guitar will come with, it’s got one that really seals the deal: it’s foldable. That’s right, you read that correctly. Our newest Rock Band peripheral is a foldable guitar.

But it’s 2016, and we’re all sick of swapping batteries. So how about we charge the guitar from now on?

Charger

That’s not all, folks! You can expect to see more Rock Band peripheral accessories on the way this year as well. In addition to the sleek new Fender Jaguar Guitar Controller, PDP is in the process of creating the Rock Band™ Fender® Jaguar Guitar Charger: a charging dock designed exclusively for the Fender Jaguar Guitar Controller that includes a rechargeable battery back, all the while serving as a modern display stand for your latest axe in music gaming. What better way to show off your newest guitar than in a snazzy guitar stand that also keeps your battery charged? You can even connect the included AC adapter to the battery pack and charge while playing!

And finally, the PDP Adapter. It’s still being worked on, but we’ve got pictures.
Adapter

Officially licensed by Microsoft, the Rock Band™ 4 Wired Legacy Adapter for Xbox One is exclusively compatible with Rock Band 4 and these specific legacy controllers:

Rock Band 3 Midi PRO-Adapter for Xbox 360
ION Drum Rocker for Xbox 360
Wired legacy Rock Band peripherals*

* The adapter is still in development, but Harmonix and PDP are working together to achieve compatibility across the entire wired product line.

That’s right, they ARE trying to get everything wired working with it. Xplorers, RB1 stuff(if you somehow have working RB1 stuff). The Stage Kit will definitely plug in and probably not do anything after that. With the multiple uses it may offer you, it’s earning its $30 price tag.

The Fender Jaguar will retail for $70 on its own. Buying a guitar with Rock Band 4 + Rivals expansion will only be $90, if you need another guitar for your band. New Band in a Boxes will be Jaguars, drums, microphone,and 4 + Rivals for $200. The Charging Stand is $30 standalone, it won’t come in the same box as a guitar at this point.
