Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter hints at upcoming DLC

 

April, get it?

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

Seems like @DanAmrich wants to watch us squirm a bit as the monthly Rocksmith newsletter sent to those that opt in on their UPlay accounts contained hints for two week’s of DLC!

Check it out:

 

An iconic debut single from the 90’s

Ok, we can take care of this one

A famous return from classic rock

Could Eric Clapton be coming back to Rocksmith and bringing the songs we lost with him?

Update:

18:30ish “Love my favourite magazine”

 

Nope, it’s Thin Lizzy!

A wonderful catastrophe

Wishful thinking…

What do you think is coming this week and next? While keeping in mind this and this of course.

So for this 5th month of the year, do we have a photo of Peter Parker standing next to his Aunt?

Looked up “iconic songs” in Wikipedia. First example was “Smells like teen spirit”. Apparently, Iconic songs are those considered by many to be the best. So Nirvana? Yay.

Anything but AC/DC… Every song sounds the same…. I’d rather play Kenny G backing tracs!!!

Then it shows how woefully ignorant you are . Even some of the most virtuoso guitar players cites angus and Malcolm as brilliant rythym players . Also you couldthrowarock andhotcoutlessarticles analyzing their playing.

Two pages out of rock music that have plagued guitar instruction and Guitar Centers for far too long. Rocksmith is the first realm of teaching that successfully diverts from that stuff at least a little bit. I don’t want to feel like I’m in a virtual Guitar Center or reading Guitar Player magazine to learn some classic “licks”.

Dan sort of confirmed the return from Rock n Roll clue had to do with Thin Lizzy. I guess it’s a no for Clapton, although it doesn’t make much since that Thin Lizzy is a “return” since they were never featured in this game before.

The clue hints at a famous return, referring to the famous return of the boys, to town

While I would love to see a Clapton pack as I never purchased RS 1 and missed out there are some other possibilities.

Let’s not forget Journey, Fleetwood Mac and on a much grander scale, the Eagles all made triumphant returns in the last 20 -- 30 years.

ACDC and the Stones made big returns in the 80s.

Oh one more thing. As for a Wonderful Catastrophe, the careers of both Fleetwood Mac and RHCP both fit the bill.

A famous return to classic rock? Ac/Dc back in black. Depends what they mean by a famous return, but now I have my hopes way up!

If the 2 songs from Clapton/Cream come back we better not have to pay again. Here’s hoping to Layla and Cocaine as well.

If it is an Eric Clapton pack, it better be more then 5 songs.

I am real bad with these clues… but yea, looks like the Band The Turtles …. and maybe Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Love it or Hate it, it was one of those Iconic songs of the 90’s. And I Have no idea what else. Like I said I am bad with the clue stuff.

…I thought with that picture we were getting songs from that early 90’s TMNT band. That would probably be the greatest DLC ever.

Hopefully we get some new tracks to the Clapton set. Bell Bottom Blues would be definitely be a nice addition.

Fleetwood Mac with Landslide for a wonderful catastrophe maybe? Really hoping the Eric Clapton guess is correct. Faith no More would be fine with me also. Epic is a great song.
