Rocksmith 2014’s amazing setlist keeps growing with 9 new songs, and our first look at gameplay!


IGN have released an article showing off gameplay in Rocksmith 2014. We get to see our first gameplay video, showcasing Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So”, and we get to see tone-switching in action as well as what appears to be bend-chords.

The next video we see is entitled “The Top 5 Improvements in Rocksmith 2014”. From this we find out about adjustable dynamic difficulty, great for those of you who already know how to play guitar! You can also see what notes are going to be added as you adjust the difficulty. Another feature we find out about is finger positions for chords, meaning that it will tell you what finger you should be using, and where you should be using it, when playing a chord. Rocksmith 2014 will also feature a Dynamic Master Mode, meaning that if you continue to ace a section, the game will gradually fade the notes away for that section and grant you a big score boost. Probably the best feature unveiled in this video is an improved menu layout and reduced load times. I don’t know about you, but the awkward interface and long load times were a massive negative for me in the otherwise stellar Rocksmith, so to hear they’ve been improved is a major plus! The final feature shown in the video is Session Mode. This was already shown off at E3, but in case you don’t remember, it’s essentially a way to jam with a computer generated backing band in a style of your choosing that will adapt to your play style.

The third video shows off a new Guitarcade game entitled Star Chords. It’s essentially Dawn of the Chordead, but replacing the zombies with spaceships and a back alley with space.

The next video showcases gameplay of Slayer’s “War Ensemble”. The video is just a casual reminder that Slayer songs are fast, and odds are you’ll break your E-string with all that strumming.

The final video gives us a look at Session Mode, with the Blues setting. It’s not a particularly long or informative video, but it’s neat to see how the dynamic backing band adapts to the guitar playing!

Finally, we get to see the setlist so far, but with 9 new unannounced songs! The new songs are:
