If you’ve been wanting to learn how to play guitar or bass, but don’t have the interest or desire to hire a personal coach, look no further. Ubisoft has officially begun a subscription-based relaunch of Rocksmith, which it now calls Rocksmith+.
Compatible with acoustic, electric, and bass guitars, Rocksmith+ will start with thousands of songs and grow to millions more in the future, within genres spanning from rock, classic, indie, alternative, hip-hop, pop, metal, country, Latin, R&B, and more. At launch, Rocksmith+ will have a variety of authentic arrangements that represent songs the way the artists originally played them, and all songs in the library will be playable with chord charts for players to hum and strum to.
Users can take advantage of an entire suite of new and improved practice tools including Riff Repeater, wherein they can directly practice specific riffs in their favorite songs; and Adaptive Difficulty, wherein Rocksmith+ dynamically adjusts to a guitar player’s skill level while they play. These tools are designed to give guitar players control over their learning journey. Rocksmith+ will be available for $19.99 for a 1-month subscription, $49.99 for a 3-month subscription, and $129.99 for a 12-month subscription.
Those with interest can also use the related app to play and learn.
Rocksmith+ will come to PC this summer, Xbox One/Xbox Series & PlayStation 4/5 this fall, and iOS and Android at a later date. The PC beta kicks off today.
