Rock Band 4


Rock Band 4 is launching today on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Rock Band is doing their best to revive the whole peripheral-based rhythm genre, potentially building a home for the Rock Band platform on current-gen consoles.

New additions are added into Rock Band 4, such as giving the players more creative control over the music they are playing. Guitarists can noodle out Freestyle Solos, which are a blast, even when you’re a new player with no idea of what you’re doing. Vocalists can make up their own melodies, so long as they’re on-key with the song. Drummers can elect to drop the freestyle fills from past games in exchange for premade fills, which doesn’t have the distracting lag they’ve suffered from in the past.

The physical element of bringing over instruments is also a bit strained, partially outside of Harmonix’s purview. Firstly, the players have to follow their compatibility chart to see whether the device will even work with the new game. Additionally, due to the shift in technology from the 360 to the Xbox One, the players need to purchase a $20 adapter to use your old instruments that do work. When you add in that nothing works cross-console family, things get even more tricky, as it’ll cost you $250 to grab a new guitar, drum kit, and a mic — and if you want to get a second guitar, it gets even pricier.

Rock Band 4 is a bit of a conundrum. On one hand, it’s not only a hassle to switch generations due to the fact that so many elements don’t work with the new one, but additionally — Rock Band 3 is still a thing, supports all of your DLC, and has more features. On the other, there’s nothing inherently wrong with this iteration, and for those of you who missed out in the past or have broken 360s or PS3s, you’ll still be able to rock out into the night with friends and have a whole lot of fun.
