Hello Rocksmith fans!
Our hint this weeks comes to us in the form of this puzzle:
Did you figure it out yet? It didn’t take long for the forums to fill in the squares, but that led to a jumbled up mess of letters that required some deciphering.
After twelve pages, we finally had our first stab in the correct direction.
They were right. It’s Primus.
We don’t know what songs are coming, or how many, but here’s what we think the pack may shape up like!
Jerry Was a Race Car Driver
Could this week finally be the week more-than-4 string bass is patched in? If not, I’d love to see how this song gets charted. Those of you who played the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater may remember this song from its awesome soundtrack!
John the Fisherman
The only other Primus song to feature in a
video (EDIT: rhythm) game, John the Fisherman was, if I recall correctly, the first ever master track to appear on the main setlist of a Guitar Hero when it showed up in Guitar Hero II! It’s one of their biggest hits and there’s almost no way that it doesn’t show up here.
My Name is Mud
This song definitely calls for some super advanced bass techniques that we haven’t seen before in the game. Plus, just think of the AMAZING tone we’ll get!
Tommy the Cat
Yet another incredible bass song (sensing a theme yet?) Plus, there are those who may see Tommy as a strange animal…
Too Many Puppies
The first song ever composed by Les Claypool, and a Primus fan favourite, this song is definitely on the more simple end of their catalogue and might provide a nice introduction to their music for less advanced players!
Of course, this pack coming out so soon after we find out Ubisoft San Fancisco is working on the new South Park game could be a bit more than a coincidence!
Are you excited to put your bass skills to the test, or are you holding out for something a bit more… conventional? Let us know in the comments!
