Rocksmith 2014 Remastered coming in October!

2GI5n68

It’s been a while since we got a new Rocksmith game, hasn’t it? Well, that looks like it’s all about to change soon. Sort of. Eagle-eyed Reddit user Sorkwelin discovered the image above on the Rocksmith website which looks to indicate that an updated version of Rocksmith 2014 is coming to current-gen consoles and PC.

This was officially confirmed later, along with some more details about what Rocksmith 2014 Remastered actually is. Let’s take a look at all the new information:

  • Rocksmith 2014 Remastered is not a new Rocksmith game but rather a major update to Rocksmith 2014.
  • If you already own Rocksmith 2014 on ANY platform (360 and PS3 included) you will recieve the update for free.
  • The library sorting features are being updated with a new Search feature that will allow you to type in what you’re looking for in Learn a Song, Score Attack, and the Shop.
  • Nonstop Play will now allow you to create custom playlists.
  • Riff Repeater navigation has been made much smoother.
  • You can now view all song arrangements in the new Song Hub meaning you don’t need to change paths anymore.
  • Nonstop Play can now be filtered by tunings and you can switch arrangements between songs.
  • The rate of Dynamic Difficulty can now be adjusted or removed altogether.
  • You can view detailed in-game statistics about your playing.

In addition, six new songs will be available as part of Rocksmith 2014 Remastered. They are as follows:

If you’re buying the physical disc version of Rocksmith 2014 Remastered then you’ll receive a voucher to download these songs for free. If you’ve already purchased Rocksmith 2014 then these songs will be available to purchase the same week that Rocksmith 2014 Remastered is released in retail stores. Rocksmith 2014 Remastered is going to launch in October, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for when the update goes live!

So if we already have RS 2014 on ps4, will we get the update and songs for free?

Riff Repeater
Guest

No, you will get the patch for free, that’s it

mrcool909090
Guest

kinda frustrating for us 360 owners

Riff Repeater
Guest

Why?

mrcool909090
Guest

You can get the remastered disc with the dlc for Xbox 1, PS4, and PC, but not 360 or PS3

Riff Repeater
Guest

So buy it for $13.99 and download the free patch. Why do you want a new disc?

If only we could get October and September to trade places, just this once……..

So happy to see these much needed improvements and the DLC, with the exception of J5, is very solid. Thank you Rocksmith! Keep up the good work!

“With the exception of J5”? WHAT?!

Brant S
Guest

Oh, PLEASE give us Elvis with THIS bass line!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb0Jmy-JYbA

Wisenheimer
Guest

Now that’s a killer bass line (and my favorite Elvis song) but I doubt we’ll see that version. I remember hearing somewhere that Elvis used to tell his bass players to “not play to many notes”. =

Brant S

I find myself looping the Cover, above, while doing other things. I love it. And once I get the patterns down, I WILL duplicate.

George Carlinlives

When did Josh Homme dye his hair and start dressing funny? He needs to layoff the qualudes and get back to playing guitar.

Zenith
Guest

Oh wow! Big free update and also some class songs… can’t wait! 😀

drox

Has anybody some info about a trem-bar feature? Some kind of indicator? I always wondered why there were only harmonics when the trem-bar was used.

Ortez Jacob
Guest

Joseph McMirra I'm guessing that wouldn't be something Rocksmith would do since their main focus is guitar and bass. Seems like that would warrant it's own game.

Joseph McMirra
Guest

i wonder is japan is getting any songs nd we might get them later. more one ok rock!

Eliezer Fuentes
Guest

Maybe we would have lost some songs…. Like what happen with RS1 to RS 2014.
We lost:
Eric Clapton “Run Back To Your Side”
Cream “Sunshine of Your Love”
Seth Chapla “Jules”
Seth Chapla “Star Spangled Banner”
Chris Lee “Boss”

I’m just pleased that Rocksmith is still keeping us PS3 players in the loop…
How many gigabytes will the update be…? So I can plan accordingly with Verizon wireless…

luci_fur
Guest

A discounted price on the 6 song DLC pack would be a nice gesture also…
Call it a birthday present for your loyal subjects or some shit…

Chris Trudeau

This is awesome news. Has anyone here taken the Rocksmith Poll at Rocksmith Connect ? Rocksmith Connect wants to help connect Rocskmith Players in the same city or towns to hangout and jam!

John N Tucson
Guest

I was also a fan of the playback… and the audience feedback

Ortez Jacob
Guest

I'm guessing their main dev team is working on South Park at the moment so most expansions would be light on resources at this stage. The post on their ubisoft forum said one of the note trackers was able to change certain aspects of the game that didn't require much work from the dev team.

With their current note tracking team lessons may not be viable since they probably want to keep enough padding in their dlc so they are able to put a new one out every week. Would be a cool idea though.

Ortez Jacob
Guest

You mean like Rockband?, just not sure what people actually mean by this, like a plastic drum kit?

Ortez Jacob
Guest

I'm guessing they wouldn't have seperate games for that as it would push the game itself into quite a niche field that not may not have as many sales as just doing a dlc release every week. There is Country and Blues stuff on there already, will have to dig through the library of available songs to find it though.

Brenton Story

Love what this update has to offer, and REALLY loving that it's free for those that already own it. Can't wait to see it!

Thomas Andres We'll probably never see separate track as that would mean relicensing everything to get stems file which some of the song don't have available anymore and RB4 is doing some nasty thing to the audio to avoid people ripping of the precious stems…

Cédric Schneider
Guest

Most of the dev team is on South Park so there's no way that studio could have put out another game this year as the team is still smallish.

Cédric Schneider
Guest

So you're still playing RS1?

Thomaz
Guest

I hope they at least release new achievements with this update

Elliott

I doubt it

Elliott

Confirmed

Thomaz

that is just lazy…

MarleySantana
Guest

Almost don’t even care about the updates. This DLC is like a blast of fresh air clearing out of room full of tear gas.

RPG
Guest

Agreed. Wish they would have more music like this instead of another metal band every week.

MarleySantana
Guest

True. This year has been rather boring as far as the DLC has been. Not intending to trash anyone’s musical tastes, but it is high time Ubisoft stepped away from this course of repeating the same format every week. Glad to see they’re adding some flavor to the mix.

Brian Davis
Guest

Playback was probably my favorite feature. I would also like to see more statistics on the songs I play.

thequickmind
Guest

Its funny, I’m more excited about the patch than the dlc. I don’t like any of those songs, but I’m glad other people are happy.

Nick
Guest

awesome, the playlist and alt arrangements in freeplay will be hugely welcomed by me, everything else sounds neat too.

Frank Gliha
Guest

No. I would think you'd only get the update on a platform you already own. You'll qualify for the update on PS3. PS3 and PS4 are different platforms for the software. The update is free, not the core game for a different platform.

Scuddyflypaper
Guest
Tremendous news it shows continued investment and evolution of the platform. Yes I would like more AAA Rock bands the obvious ones we are missing GNR LZ PF ACDC etc but I accept the reasons why this has not happened to date. Still holding out hope for the future when rocksmith will still be around. Subtle changes and improvements to the experience good enough for me for now meaning I can go back and replay my go to tracks. Rocksmith has given me the direction and motivation to improve no doubt about it so respect and thanks for this if… Read more »
Matt

GnR and AC/DC seem likely in the future as both of those have been in games before. Hopefully if the reunion tour goes well for GnR, Axl might open up to their songs being in the game. And for AC/DC, seems at this stage we might only get them if it’s a full album since they don’t seem to like their music being split up, seems itunes was able to do that though.

Anthony M. Parente

HAS ANYONE THOUGHT ABOUT JAZZSMITH, BLUES SMITH OR COUNTRY SMITH NOT THAT I CARE MUCH FOR COUNTRY BUT JAZZ OR BLUES GUITAR MAY BE FUN OR EVEN IF WE HAD A LITTLE MORE IN ROCKSMITH.

Sweet songs!

Call Rocksmith 2016 was too hard? lol

It’s not a new edition, it’s an update 🙂

Zenith

If they’ve done that, people would complain it’s not enough for a new version…

Pieter

Here some of my thoughts for inprovement ( i will be gladreceive my award in free dlc for rest of my life 😉 ) most happy with the promised control of dynamic difficulty in learn a song! Need Better tuning ; does any one has problems? Especially outside estandard i get problems. Need More detail in strumpatterns to practice i would love to have a display screen with static tab in rs at each level of difficulty at learn a song; so you can practice it by memory and hearing. And… Why not be able to put in tour own… Read more »
firekorn

About your tuning issue : Get a decent guitar or change your tuning peg!

You will be able to see and navigate through the song once you pause it so you’ll be able to read the chart at the speed you want.

Strum pattern would be nice but it’s hard to make without cluttering the screen of information so i guess they haven’t find a decent way to do it yet…

RPG
Guest

Without a real progress system, 2014 didn’t seem to have the motivation that the original had. And yeah, it would be nice to have a bit more information on the strum patterns so you can get the feel of the song down.

Ragnar Eng
Guest

Let me get this straight… I've bought Rocksmith 2014 for the Playstation 3, and soon I will be able to download an upgraded version for the Playstation 4, for free? Is that correct? Good stuff, if it really is so 🙂

Guest

Jonas free update with songs yusss

Guest

A guitarcade game for sweep picking would have been great.

DRein9
Guest

Remastered came out of nowhere for me during the stream. Better search and playlists are great additions, plus the door open for the potential of more Marley/Elvis/Michael Jackson!

Michael Matzat
Guest

This is awsome news. You can get the game so cheap right now, i paied like 10€ on the Canadian PSN and they are still suporting it instead of pushing out a new 60€ game.

George Carlinlives
Guest

FUK YEAH!!!!!!!!!

Hmm, too bad there will be no play lists in Learn A Song. That’s where I spend all my time in RS lookinf for the right song or never getitng to the one I was thinking of because I got side tracked along the way by other songs.

Wisenheimer
Guest

Lolol…..I know what you mean about sidetracked. Seems like I start every rocksmith day with then intention of playing a particular song but by the time I’ve scrolled to it I’ve already played 10 other songs and half the time the intended song never gets played at all.

George Carlinlives
Guest

Exactly, and it gets worse with every song I purchase. I lose them, I think I still have not played one of the Crobot songs I bought.

Elliott
Admin

Damn you are missing out, play those immediately

George Carlinlives
Guest

BTW, I just saw in this week’s live stream that play lists will also work in Learn A Song, which resolves my major misgiving about it.

Elliott
Admin

\o/

Wisenheimer
Guest

Speaking of losing songs, I hope this update fixes what I assume is a glitch. Every now and then a song will disappear from my library. When it happens I don’t need to redownload it, I just restart the game and it usually reappears. I don’t know why this happens. Maybe I have too much dlc. Lol

Thomas Andres
Guest

Would also love to be able to have separate tracks. Turn off every track but the drums and try playing that way. How about letting me export the drum track so I can take it to a friends house and practice because there is never a drummer around when you need one. Don't forget about karaoke! Turn of the vocals and and a mic and see how in tune you can sing. Yeah it can be better.

Thomas Andres
Guest

Would love more lessons! Want to play scales up and down the neck.

Joseph McMirra
Guest

Sean Arteaga that would be as amazing as when the original rocksmith came out

MarleySantana
Guest
IT IS ABOUT DAMN TIME. (put that in bold, underline it and place asterisks on all sides.) I’m at a loss for words. Don’t even know where to begin. After 6 months of DLC that (for me) seemed to hover around the same 2 or 3 genres, it’s nice to see Rocksmith is finally adding some real variety to the mix. As with any artist, there can be a complaint as to song choice. (I do have that complaint when it comes to how P-funk is represented) The fact that we’ll have something from THE LEGEND aka Tuff Gong is… Read more »

Awful DLC. Are these choices in anticipation of a presumed win for Hillary Clinton? Enough with this rape-y multicultural bullshit, I wanna ROCK!

Sean Arteaga
Guest

That would be great for guitar and drums at same time.

David Ledford
Guest

Would love a rocksmith drums

Ortez Jacob
Guest

Zachariah Brown I'm guessing the licenses for those songs wouldn't be cheap either.

Zachariah Brown
Guest

Well they have to pay for the new game, so I'm cool with it.

Jim Regan
Guest

There are a lot of things I liked about the original rocksmith that I was hoping would return such as the playback of your performance at the end of the song. I also liked the "game" format. I liked playing songs to unlock more songs and build a following.

How about additional lessons? A possible expansion? The option is there why not utilize it?

Heffa
Guest

Jackson 5??? Really?!!
C’mon it’s Rocksmith not discosmith.M.J. Was a child molester for Christ sakes!!!

Elliott

You must not be a bassist

Matt
Guest

C’mon it’s Rocksmith not Countrysmith

C’mon it’s Rocksmith not Funksmith

C’mon it’s Rocksmith not Metalsmith

Well they do try cater to large amounts of people so Rock isn’t really their sole focus despite the title.

Wisenheimer
Guest

Yes really!!!! And it will be a pleasure playing Wilton Felder’s KICK ASS BASS LINE. I can see how guitarists might not be thrilled but after yawning my way through the Satriani song, I really don’t have much sympathy. Lol

Willie Murray
Guest

Bummer … was kind of hoping there would be a Rocksmith 2017 out this year or something… though I guess there really is no need for a new game right? Just update the note detection and some of the things that they stated here. (and I'm really not that fussed about not getting those 6 songs fo rfree either) … Still love the game…. though I do miss the discount sales on songs they used to do on the original Rocksmith (I've spent a small fortune lol).

Guest

Daniel Bobber Smart

Jennifer Blancett

In the Midnite hour they cried more more more. Funny my RS2014 already lets me do custom play list for continuous play. And we always like more songs. Never had to change paths in 2012.

Guest

Yawn.

Guest

Yeah, comments that say nothing sure are boring.

Brandon Chrysler
Guest

Russ DiMartino did you read the article? If you already have rocksmith 2014 then you don't get the songs for free…

Russ DiMartino
Guest

They don't. It will be a free update for current owners of ths game.

Guest

Damn. Those new DLC songs are pretty sweet too.

Mike
Guest

Wait I’m confused. Is there no reason for me to buy this as a RS2014 owner?

Russell
Guest

“If you already own Rocksmith 2014 on ANY platform (360 and PS3 included) you will recieve the update for free.” but going by the post, youll have to buy the songs

Jeff Runge
Guest

I've been waiting five years for this fucking update for a search bar, FINALLY

Guest

Nice that they’re taking care of their customers. I’ve bought 14 for both 360/one.as well as the original.

Guest

Is there a difference between the one and 360 version?

Guest

No. I just got sick of switching between the two consoles. Plus the 1 version was deeply discounted a month or so ago and I figured it’d be nice to have another cable incase one went out on me.

Guest

I have RS14 on steam, xbox one, xbox 360, and PS3

Guest

Joey Lazenby Tanner Lazenby

Guest

Idk if I’ll like it really…. Like it won’t really effect anything I do except searching

Guest

Haha true but still a nice feature

Guest

Wtf?

Guest

Haha Ice Cube is gonna be sweet dude

Guest

Like 3 seconds of guitar hahaa

Guest

Remember it’s all speculation by the author

Guest

Not a stretch at all, we already got Regulate by Warren G in the game, but it has a typo and for some reason it’s listed as I keep forgetting … apparently they can’t remember the song title

Guest

Michael McDonald -- Keep Forgettin

Guest

Would’ve happily paid for that update, but free is always nice 🙂

Nicolás Cáceres Nogueira
Guest

I think its pretty unfair that previous owners of Rocksmith 2014 have to pay for those new songs!

Thomaz
Guest

Doesn’t seem like a lot of stuff, it doesn’t deserve to be called a remaster imo. It’s just another lazy excuse to sell more, I already bought this game twice not going to buy it again, it’s about time they release a proper sequel.

hammer1021
Guest

why would you buy it again? It’s a free patch.

Matt
Guest
What would be the point in making a sequel when they can just do minor updates to improve the game?, they have said on one of their recent posts that the updates relate to making song selection a lot easier and stuff relating to using the riff repeater. The updates are free if you already have it as well. There is another thing to think about too, when they release Rocksmith (what ever year) it will be likely that all your dlc may not carry over initially as licensing agreements may need to be renegotiated, that would be a big… Read more »
Thomaz
Guest
If they were to release a new game it would require about 50 or so songs, on this “remastered” version they included 6 songs, that you need to pay $60 or buy them separately for $18, what a nice way to treat long time supporters. What is the point in doing minor updates if you are going to do them 3 years after the game first lauched? Waiting for the next minor update in 2019! The game is the same as it was when it was released, it still takes 30 minutes to load all the dlc, it still can’t… Read more »
Matt
Guest

The update itself is free, it’s only the dlc songs that are extra. But really, I wouldn’t expect them to provide all those songs free for every single person as they’re probably still having to pay for the license of using their songs to begin with.

Also people have said that a new Rocksmith isn’t likely until the note detection software is improved enough for the next iteration to be viable.

Guest

Scott Reel

Guest

Omg. This will amazing!

Guest

Ikr!

Wisenheimer
Guest

I’m indifferent to all of these improvements. I’ll get excited when 5 string bass support is added (lol, I know). Looking forward to “I want you back” though, another request fulfilled. Thanks rocksmith. 🙂

Shaun Garrett

Hey, not bad, only took them 5 years to figure out they had one of the worst navigation/menu setups in gaming history.

Guest

I just have to say…

BOB!!!!!!!

FREAKING!!!!!!!

MARLEY!!!!!!!

Guest

Edward Richardson

Guest

I was just listening to suspicious minds the other day at the grocery store and I was thinking that I would love to learn the guitar riff for the song! Also, Drops of Jupiter … Does this mean a keyboard expansion in the future?

Guest

Doubtful

Guest

Could imagine something like that would warrant a different type of game since the main focus of Rocksmith was for Guitar/Bass.

Seems like that type of thing would warrant a different team of people making a new IP not related to Rocksmith.

Guest

No plans for keyboard or drums. Our strength is in guitar and bass.

Guest

Any plans to expand the mic options? I love to sing and play guitar/bass.

Guest

WOW. That’s like… every significant complaint I have had about the game, addressed. All at once.

Guest

yesss!!! (Y)

Brian
Guest
Why don’t the one’s that already own it get those songs free also, I’ve purchased alot of dlc and feel that we should get them too , I’ve been with this game since the first Rocksmith was released and pre-ordered both versions, spent lot’s of cash on song’s only to be left out just like in the first Rocksmith when they added bass to it, now an update after all this time and the true followers get left out, same as when Jimi Hendrix was released you got those for free for a limited time if you purchased the game… Read more »
Matt
Guest

Lots of games do that type of thing, Guitar Hero and Rockband both had exclusive songs if you purchased it from certain stores even though you’re buying the same game.

WonderWaage
Guest

No

Matt
Guest

Not sure if that was to me but:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_songs_in_Rock_Band_4, is quite a few sets of songs free for people preordering on different consoles, so exclusivity of songs (or bonus songs) aren’t something new.

Think WonderWage was replying to the OP

Ivan Salkovics

Cool that’s free for PS3 users

Cory Baker, Chris Arman

This is AWESOME! I would have been happy with just the update but Bob Marley & Outkast is a great bonus

Aside from Train I’m pretty excited about all of ’em!

MarleySantana
Guest

Ditto, on the Train piece.

Other than that, this is the first time in a long time that I can say “this is an AMAZING pack of music”. October seems so far away now.

DRein9
Guest

I knew you’d be happy when Dan said Marley was coming. I believe he said those songs are in addition to the usual weekly pack. We could get two solid packs in one week!

Guest

Love this, also ELVIS at last.

Guest

well it’s about friggen time!!!!

It’s so gold.. .
