Guitar-lessons-disguised-as-a-game Rocksmith has come to an end.
Yes, after over 343 weeks and 1,570 songs later, Rocksmith‘s developer is moving onto something new.
Taking to a blog post, Ubisoft published Rocksmith stated:
“After 383 weeks of DLC releases, this pack brings us to a total of 1570 songs in the Rocksmith library, spanning over 7 decades (or 3 centuries, in the case of “Bachsmith“) and covering a multitude of genres for guitar and bass. For over a decade, we’ve watched players learn, grow, and constantly surprise us with your talent, creativity, and eagerness to help one another reach your goals. We truly could not be more proud to play a part in this guitar journey with you.
Although we will no longer be releasing new DLC, we still have weekly online content planned for Rocksmith fans. The Rocksmith Dev Stream will continue (in a new format), along with some more surprises. We will also continue to share updates for our new project when we’re ready on our website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram“.
We Built This City on Rock(smith) & Roll
The original incarnation of Rocksmith launched back in 2011 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A “sequel” came in the form of Rocksmith 2014. (In truth, it acted more of a fleshed-out remaster for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.)
The core gameplay differed Rocksmith from Rock Band or Guitar Hero; in place of plastic peripherals, you could plug your actual guitar or bass into your console. This enabled you to play along and learn how to play your favourite songs.
As you can read above, despite DLC coming to an end, the spirit of Rocksmith will live on as the developers promise new surprises.
