Rocksmith Survey hints at the future of the franchise

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Late last night (or early depending where you were) @cjblandford posted on reddit that he had received an email from @UbisoftStudioSF asking him to participate in a survey!

Here’s the link to the survey if you didn’t receive it in your email!


What does the survey contain? There’s a fair bit to pique our interest at @TheRiffRepeater! Subscription based models? Online Multiplayer? An actual Vocal training mode?!

Rocksmith survey 2017

Thanks to @MooPuns

 

An interesting look at some considered additions to Rocksmith in the future :-O

 

 

Here’s all the Genres for consideration in the survey:


@DanAmrich chimed in to manage expectations, but you know how PR works…


For those who fill out the survey in the United States you could win a few things, so don’t miss your chance to give @Rocksmithgame your feedback – and make sure you tell them you heard about the survey here on The Riff Repeater 🙂

Sadly I missed the survey. My number 1 request by far is adding support for keyboards. I would love to learn to play piano using rocksmith also. And I think, relative to guitar or other instruments, keyboards should actually be significantly easier for them to get working well (since there is no note detection, just key press 24 or 36 etc.)

PLEASE ADD KEYBOARDS ROCKSMITH….I’d buy all the DLC again to play it with a keyboard.

Self-made content, keyboards, music theory would be absolutely wonderful additions.

agree, also…if we do keys…drums? If you give a mouse a cookie, he’s gonna want a glass of milk 😉

I do drums for real on my rock band set up with an Alesis ekit. I would love to be able to play with a guitarist or bassist.

Oye keyboard SO is possible, I seen a guy on youtube plug in a keyboard to the first rocksmith and actually play the guitar notes for it. they already have programs like that for keyboard it wouldn’t be nearly as hard as it was making guitar note detection work. the only difference is the keyboard would be almost flawless on the note detection part (unless you start playing with the effects and not let rocksmith “tone switch”. There are enough rock epics that use keyboard to justify it I think and you could even play some guitar parts on it with transposing.

YES NO SUBSCRIPTION MODEL UNLESS ITS OPTIONAL

I think music theory is a huge thing missing in rocksmith. It does a great job in teaching HOW to do things, but it doesn’t do a great job teaching you WHY you do things. Adding music theory lessons would be amazing. Also, I wouldn’t mind vocals.

Okay I don’t want a subscription model.. I will only be okay with subscriptions IF AND ONLY IF, its OPTIONAL and if it doesn’t screw the people who would rather buy and keep their songs and not pay every month.. it might be a good deal for some but not everyone like me who only buys songs I actually like after watching the video of the parts.. I buy a lot of DLC don’t get me wrong but if I was paying every month lets say 20 bucks since RS one.. Id have paid over 600 dollars MORE for all the songs I own now.. and from a company standpoint I guess it makes sense to charge a person multiple times if you can… but trust me subscriptions are hardly ever a good deal and there’s no way we could even play the whole catalog in a reasonable time frame anyways and in the end you find maybe a couple hundred songs you like enough to replay regularly? the price to buy them little by little will be much cheaper then subscribing in the end… and yea when a game or services goes from buy and keep to subscript (I mean completely) that softwere ends up dying many times and losing customers who simply wont pay every month for what they used to be able to “pay as they go” for.. The best choice would be to offer “both” for those who prefer either model. BUt only if you don’t alienate the “buy and keepers” by offering many extras that are only available in the subscription model.. . I know im getting defensive in this post but Ive seen the industry screw things up with subscriptions too many times to ever wish that on anything I love and Ive seen… Read more »

The most interesting part of the survey was easily the suggested features question, I’d really like to see the singing integration, ability to create songs (hopefully to record, although I’m doing that with Audacity already), online multiplayer and a VR mode.

That was my favorite part too, I had a very hard time unchecking all these options I’ve never questionned myself to add to the game (but by far create your own songs ingame is my favorite, would be so cool)

I really like VR, but I have no idea how rocksmith could benefit from it at all o.O

I haven’t tried out Rockband VR, but the sense of immersion of being on stage sounded like it’s a great experience. I’d definitely like to try out a VR mode in Rocksmith where you feel like you’re onstage playing in front of an audience.

But not seeing the guitar will make it a bit harder to play and not seeing everything else will make it a bit easier to smash your guitar, more cables won’t help either. If you are really afraid to go play live it might help, otherwise I’ll stick to monitor 😀

You can add a guitar in vr & obviously you’ll want to have a bit of space, which you need holding a guitar anyway.

It’s not about being afraid, it’s about having the immersion, I don’t think anyone is going to force you to play in vr haha.

This is an unbelievably stupid idea. How are you going to see your neck? Why would you want to play guitar with a VE headset on? If you want immersion, close your eyes for a minute. It’s music!!!

Because you can attach a controller to the guitar to see it, plus after a bit of practice you learn not to have to rely on looking at your finger placement.

You must have an impressive imagination if you can visualise playing in a band in front of an audience by just closing your eyes.

I can visualize almost anything by closing my eyes. Are you saying you can’t? Wow, that’s depressing.

Now that I think about it, playing guitar looking at a fake video game audience with a tv strapped to my face seems super comfortable and really conducive to advancement at my instrument.

“you can put attach a controller to your guitar…” WTF? Why would I want that????

Well considering the proof of concept has been attempted in VR with Rockband & there’s a question in the survey regarding VR, I’d be interested in the mode or at least trying it out. I’d imagine if it was that terrible they’d find that out in development.

I think something like Rocksmith is more well suited to Augemented or Mixed Reality

I love that Rocksmith has such great feedback with his community that we can express in a survey that seems very good. I love the game and I hope it stays active for many more years.

Ooh the floodgates are open now. C’mon George Benson, Funkadelic, and guitarcade.

(Side note: Yeees!! I finally guessed a correct answer on the monthly newsletter hint.)

It’s good to hear that there will likely be another version in the future. Ability to record and compose along with more music theory lessons would be great. Also the load times really need to improve for dlc it takes like 5 mins before I can play anything on PS3. So what’s your guess on release date and platforms?

What do you mean, what’s our guess? They explicitly said that nothing is set in stone or confirmed. The new version they were referring to is Rocksmith iOS.
