Greetings Rocksmith fans!

We were promised a big announcement, and BOY was that delivered! Legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix is coming to Rocksmith, and we’re not just getting a measly five pack! That’s right, we’re getting TWELVE songs by the guitar great. To top it all off, if you’re a PS4 or Xbox One owner, you can get these tracks for the low, low price of FREE! That’s right, once these songs become available on December 16th, PS4 and Xbox One owners have until January 31st to get these songs for free.

The songs won’t be a timed exclusive to the new consoles, but will only be free there. 360/PS3/PC/Mac players will have to purchase the songs. In order to download the free tracks, you must get them from the in-game store. In addition to the 12 pack, the songs will also be available as 4 3-packs, and singles. How the songs will be divided up remains unknown at this time.

This is definitely a massive get for Rocksmith, especially given the presumed BandFuse exclusivity. My gut says that, given how huge his catalogue is, even though this is a huge pack, there may be more even more coming! Either way, this is a fantastic pack, and is sure to keep us busy for a while (once it’s out, of course)!
