Rocksmith 2014 DLC 8/18/2015 – Hit Singles Pack

Ok seriously, this time it’s actually @DefLeppard, we promise.

Hello Rocksmith fans!

This week’s DLC features four hit singles from four separate artists!

First up we have the debut of @FleetwoodMac with Go Your Own Way, popular Australian rip off artists Jet with Are You Gonna Be My Girl, @DefLeppard’s return to Rocksmith 2014 with the 2012 re-record of Rock of Ages, and the fingerpicked ballad from Kansas, Dust In The Wind!


Hit Singles Song Pack – $9.99 / Steam

All songs are in E Standard

 

Alternate Lead? Does that mean Violintar?! Find out tomorrow!

 

Are you happy with the choices for this song pack? Or are you worried this will be the last we’ve seen of Def Leppard and Fleetwood Mac? Let us know!

Sony Europe Friends:

Bit of band news, gang — I just found out this content will not be available in the SCEE territories until next week. The revised date is August 24. Looks like it’s on Ubisoft’s side this time; a fix didn’t get applied in time.

Sorry for the bad news; I’ll keep you posted as I hear things.

What happened to the DL single at the Steam store? It’s gone, but still reads as available in the pack? If I buy the pack, will it be there? Really only wanted two songs.

Don’t know how to comment on a comment.. But this goes to my post below… My PS3 finally craped out .. And ps4 was only $200 at Kmart??… So why not upgrade.. Plus I got $30 for my 2 old rs games and got the ps4 version for $30… So it wasn’t that bad

$200 sounds like a good deal for a PS4.

That’s not bad at all. I almost jumped when the Hendrix pack was offered as incentive to switch over (if I remember right anyway, lol).

Not so happy for me here, in Brazil. A PS4 costs 4000 Real (about 1141 US dollars) .

Ok I see what’s going. This is to satisfy the masses until a proper full pack can be issued. While I like “Rock of Ages” there are other songs I’d have picked for DL. Same goes for “Go Your Own Way”. Makes me think a pack from each band is on the way possibly this fall.

Fleetwood Mac (minimum 5 pack but could easily be way more)
Big Love (Live)
Never Going Back Again
Go Insane
Landslide
Gold Dust Woman
(Honorable mention One Sunny Day, Showbiz Blues, Rhiannon)

Def Leppard (minimum 5 pack, should be more)
Rocket
Hysteria
Love Bites
Photograph
Animal

For Kansas, the only other song I know by them is Carry On Wayward Son, and for Jet, was never a big fan of the song but it looks like it would be fun to play.

In all, this seems like a nice pack of songs. And once again, Ubisoft seems to be mixing things up a bit. These past few months have begun to put a beat down on the wallet.

and then:

volume 2
Gods Of War
Foolin
Armageddon It
Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)
Promises

volume 3
Bringin’ On The Heartbreak
Rock Rock (Till You Drop)
Love and Affection
Women
Let’s get rocked

I could easily put together another two.
they really cant go wrong with any Def Leppard, almost every track has good guitar work. The epitome of a Rocksmith

Completely agree with those songs, I would trade let’s get rocked for Let it Go,but until DL re-record those songs, we’ll probly never get them.

So happy and i apologie for cryin like à bitch about the 2012 version of rock of ages , its the good one tough its written 2012..?? This for me makes it the pack of the year so far behind all that remain , thin lizzy if it wasnt dance in the moonlight would be à tough choice , anthrax and classic riff with ace of spade….

Need Brian carrol , alexei laiho , RandyRhoads , rikk emmet , jake e lee , old metallica and old van halen to beats this i know 3 or 4 might never see rocksmith and i cant be surprised by another 4-5 packs with random artist

OK, good pack and I’ve always loved listening to “dust in the wind” but playing it on bass sux. If it’s octave bouncing I’d rather be putting down some boogie. Lol

Our skills will also transfer to the next RS game and we will save money by not buying RS2014 twice and will have longer to save up for a ps4. That being said… I still considered doing it, lol. 🙂

Of course from the past! The present is pretty short and future music has not been invented so far. Now eat your spoon full of friendlyness and say “sorry” to Kramer, if you are half as though as you try to sound like.

Definitely in for Dust In The Wind and Go Your Own Way. Dust was one of my first songs I learned years ago and I want to encourage more Fleetwood Mac DLC.
I’ll pass on the other 2. I hate that Jet song. I remember back when it was still really popular and it wouldn’t stop playing everywhere. I feel like I heard it enough times to suit a lifetime during that period. Def Leppard on the other hand is decent, but isn’t my thing. I just don’t really like Hair/Glam metal. No edge, nothing real to say, and a little too bubblegum rock for me.
Great singles pack though. I think it will make all of people happy.

I will buy Are you Gonna Be My Girl because the bass looks fun.

Rock of Ages and Dust in the Wind, while good songs = snoozefests for bass

Go Your Own Way is just such a repetitive song that I’ve just heard entirely too many times over the years so playing it is unappealing to me.

Whoever plays the songs in these preview videos really needs to practice more.

Aww hells yeah!!! Can’t remember the last week I didn’t buy the DLC. Keep em coming Rocksmith and thanks for the pack information RiffRepeater. Go your Own Way has a good bass line, not totally sure about the others but I really enjoy these songs so I am in!

Personally I am liking the variety we are getting with the singles packs.

I have seen a lot of bands I would like to be in a pack though… can we form a union or something where we support each others requests?

Because “strength in numbers” would mean eventually everyone would have Ubisoft contacting the artists they want in the game.

Then maybe we would get a pack from an Australian band that is good but doesn’t get the world wide appeal that other bands get.

Like for example if every one goes and requests Tame Impala Songs tonight I will support a band you like even if I don’t like them or know them.

Just a thought.

To be honest, I have real difficutly telling the two versions apart. I have the same trouble with the Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” and the Stones’ “The Last Time”: they’re pretty interchangeable for me, so either one will do.

I was thinking about Dust In The Wind yesterday and how I was surprised it wasn’t on RS yet… go figure.

I’m not a big DF fan but I’m glad to see they’ll get another tune for their legions of fans. I absolutely loathe that Jet song though… maybe it’s more fun to play than to hear but, I’m not very optimistic.
