Yowza. Six years. In some ways, six years is the blink of an eye. Otherwise, it’s forever. The world has changed quite a bit since 2015, and given the incredible turmoil of the past two years, it can be hard to remember what 2015 was like in the first place. Yet many aspects of 2015 rock band culture are still alive today. We’re still releasing weekly DLC, we’re starting our 24th (!!) season of Rock band rivals on November 4th, and the rock band community is still a vibrant gathering of music lovers from around the world.
When we think about what it means to turn six for a video game franchise, we turn to tradition. As we’ve always done for rock band birthdays, we * give * away gifts instead of getting them. This year we’re offering a free pack of 4 awesome songs and a cool in-game t-shirt to celebrate the occasion.
The full overview of the songs can be found on the RB blog. We hope you like it.
We’ll cover you
In the break between season 23 and season 24, we have a one-week bonus challenge from October 14th to 19th. We focus on the fine art of cover song – an opportunity for artists to reinvent and reinterpret well-known songs. We’re going to have some great DLC to launch this week that match the theme, as well as a number of super fun covers from our DLC catalog to help you overcome the challenge.
The beat goes on
Season 24 will revolve around a community-driven rock band meme that we see on many DLC releases with passionate members of the community screaming, “What !? I thought it was a rock band, not a metal band! The season kicks off with Halloween week, so keep an eye out for a boo or two. I promise that when all is said and done, our loyalty to the world of rock will come into its own.
I don’t want to spoil the reward, but if you think about what we’ve spent over the past two seasons, you can imagine.
Let’s keep the party going
The Rock Band team is very excited about the future of the franchise and we remain committed to bringing fun new songs to the wider community and doing everything we can to serve our passionate music game lovers.
