[Rock Band] This week: Los Lobos and The Proclaimers
Did you know you can still play games at home with plastic musical instruments, like you could in the mid-00s? It's true! Harmonix has been a pioneer in the rhythm game field for years, bringing us FreQuency, Amplitude, Karaoke Revolution, and Guitar Hero. In 2007, they brought a room full of plastic instruments together with the release of Rock Band, and the platform is alive and thriving to this day. New song releases every week!
What Songs Can I Play?
As of this writing, there are 2611 songs on the Rock Band platform. The vast majority of these are available in Rock Band 4: either on disc, as an import from an older game, or as DLC. Want to browse the selections? No problem!
The latest iteration of Rock Band is available for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Features of the recent update include:
A hilarious "behind the music" style Rockudrama mode
Head-to-head Rivals mode competition between groups of players, based around weekly themed challenges
Tons of UI improvements, like advanced song list filtering
Online synchronous play
