DLC for 9/13: Sister Hazel and Jason Aldean


If you recall, this week’s DLC allegedly leaked last week so it’s more than likely that we already know what’s coming. That said, anything can happen, so let’s take a look at what we’re getting.

  • Jason Aldean – Dirt Road Anthem
  • Sister Hazel – All for You

All songs are $1.99.

Sister Hazel and Jason Aldean coming next week?


While we knew they were coming as artists this month, we might have discovered what songs we’re getting from Sister Hazel and Jason Aldean, and there’s a very good chance that they’ll show up next week.

On the official forum post announcing this week’s Five Finger Death Punch and Good Charlotte DLC, some eagle-eyed users noticed that the image announcing the songs wasn’t quite right. Instead of saying the songs from this week, songs by Jason Aldean and Sister Hazel were shown instead.

The title of the image is “9.13_DLC_Announce_Twitter.png” which has lead many people to speculate that these two songs will be coming next week. Whether or not that happens will have to wait until the official announcement on Monday September 12th.

Rock Band Rivals’ Rivals Mode Detailed


It’s been a little bit since we’ve had any new Rock Band Rivals news, but that drought has come to an end! We got brand new details today on the new Rivals Mode that will be featured in Rock Band Rivals.

The first thing you’ll notice in Rivals in the new Rivals Hub, where you can find information about your crew. Within the Rivals Hub, there are two types of songs: Weekly Challenge Songs and Spotlight Songs. Weekly Challenge Songs contribute to your overall Crew XP, which will then increase your standing amongst other Crews in a similar tier. Spotlight Songs require you to get a high score on a specific instrument. The average percentile of your Spotlight Score and your Crew XP will determine your Rivals Points, which in turn are used to promote or demote your crew to or from a tier. You’ll also be given a skill ranking for your individual instrument on each song on a scale of 0-1000.

A good crew consists of ten players, and ideally all the instruments would be represented. Fortunately for people who don’t play on expert all the time, if ever, there’s still a way to be helpful to the crew. By playing weekly challenge songs you can contribute to your Crew XP and help the crew move up to the next tier.

In addition, Rock Band will be launching the Rock Band Companion App for iOS and Android (nothing mentioned about Windows Phone) that will allow you to essentially access the Rivals Hub in your pocket and let you easily communicate with your crew members.
