Game developer Ubisoft is working on a new video game franchise that is set to revolutionize the music genre. 'Rocksmith' is the first and only game where players can plug any real guitar with a standard quarter-inch input jack into one the latest game consoles and play through an in-depth library of music including everything from the latest hits to classic rock songs.
Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to the player’s skill level and innovative game design that makes reading music visually fun and intuitive, Rocksmith engages experienced musicians and those who are picking up a guitar for the first time. The game includes a sizeable library of music from classic rock bands to current artists, such as The Animals, The Black Keys, David Bowie, Interpol, Nirvana, and The Rolling Stones,.
"Rocksmith is the most authentic and addictive music game ever created," said Geoffroy Sardin, HQ Chief Marketing & Sales Officer at Ubisoft EMEA. "Whether a beginner or a seasoned guitarist, players can progress at their own speed and walk away from the game with the ability to play songs by memory. Rocksmith is the only video game that gets players stage-ready."
Rocksmith is slated to be released in Q3/Q4 of 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
