After Rocksmith 2014 stopped receiving new content, Ubisoft said that the team had shifted to a new project. That seems to be Rocksmith+, a subscription-based service whose closed beta goes live today for PC. It will be available this Summer for PC and in Autumn for consoles.
Simply connect your guitar – whether it’s acoustic, electric or bass – and play your favorite tunes. All songs will have chord charts (with large amount of songs available at launch). Note for note arrangement will still be available and new arrangements will be available each week. Genres like pop, hip-hop, R&B, Latin and more will be available from big stars to indie artists.
Riff Repeater and adaptive difficulty are available, allowing one to slow down and repeat some of the trickier parts. There’s also more in-depth 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 the release of Rocksmith+ like the price tag.
