After Rocksmith 2014 has stopped receiving new content, Ubisoft said the team has moved to a new project. It turns out that Rocksmith +, a subscription-based service whose closed beta goes live today for PC. It will be available this summer for PC and in the autumn for consoles.
Simply connect your guitar – whether it’s acoustic, electric or bass – and play your favorite tunes. Each song will have chord charts (with lots of songs available at launch). A note-by-note arrangement will still be available and new arrangements will be available every week. Genres like pop, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and more will be available from major stars to indie artists.
There is a Riff Repeater and difficulty adjusting, which allows one to slow down and repeat some of the hardest parts. There is also more detailed progress tracking for beginners. Rocksmith Workshop also allows users to create and add their own arrangements for licensed songs. Stay tuned for more details on release Rocksmith + as the price tag.
