Following last week’s “controversy” surrounding the Country Track Pack 2 DLC/export, I noticed some interesting language being used by @HMXHenry on some of his comments both on the forums and on Twitter. My spidey-sense was tingling, and I had an odd feeling that a “surprise” announcement may be coming today. I didn’t think much of it, as actively supporting a game well over a year past launch is relatively unheard of (although Harmonix did it with Rock Band 2). I’ve had these feelings before, and typically nothing ever comes to pass, but this time was different. Just a few moments ago, @RockBand announced that a title update (AKA a “patch”) will be arriving TOMORROW for Xbox 360 and PS3 players that enables the following features/enhancements:
- Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Dani California will now be available in Rock Band 3 to anyone that previously imported Rock Band 1.
- New filter added allowing players to hide songs rated “One Lighter.”
- Setlist crashes surrounding combinations of the songs Surfing with the Alien, Satch Boogie, The Hockey Theme, and Caprici di Diablo have been fixed.
- Other legal/security tweaks.
