As a gamer, I have played Guitar Hero and Rock Band and had a blast with them. But, I did not try Rocksmith. This new version looks awesome!! Of course, it doesn't hurt when Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) is playing along. Check this out:
Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell stopped by the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) on Tuesday (June 11) to give a few music lessons via Ubisoft's new 'Rocksmith 2014' edition. Debuting in October, the new version enables players to plug a guitar and bass into various consoles, including the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as they attempt to reach new rock horizons.
'Rocksmith 2014' features over 50 songs, including the Alice in Chains track 'Stone,' 'Don't Look Back In Anger' by Oasis, and 'The Chimera' by Smashing Pumpkins. The Rocksmith franchise, according to a study conducted by the Toluna Group, reported that 95 percent of the players have improved their guitar experience thanks to playing the game. An estimated 1.4 million gamers have learned to play the guitar through past editions of the Rocksmith tutorial.
Fans who pre-order 'Rocksmith 2014' edition will receive the free bonus song 'Cherub Rock' by Smashing Pumpkins available for download. To pre-order a copy, go here.
