Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter hints at December DLC

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Here we are, the final stretch of 2017! We have three clues this month from @DanAmrich and @UbisoftStudioSF to think about so let’s get into it!

an artist who can’t decide whether to fly or run

Welp, thanks to this clue we can pretty much all but confirm two of the four remaining songs in the Steve Miller Band pack.

a long overdue encore for one of the first artists to join the Rocksmith library

So this could be a lot of things, but is this clue about DLC? Or is it about the on-disc artists from Rocksmith (2011)?

Rocksmith 2011:

You know @BestFenton is hoping

Could Ubisoft be the second publisher to deliver apack from The Rolling Stones?

Could the wait be over?

You know you’d buy it…

DLC:

Well, one band comes to mind

Avenged Sevenfold II anyone?

Fall Out Boy II?

Maybe some more from The Clash?

Or maybe a second round of Priest?

You get the idea…

for the final release of the year, we’re headed to prison

This could be a few things, but some obvious choices would be…

Could we be getting a song pack from The Man in Black?

This would be a big surprise

That would be a pretty amazing way to end 2017

Hey, one can dream…


There’s some ideas from us, what are you hoping December brings? Do these hints excite you, or are you waiting for the ball to drop… Let us know!

Happy Holidays!

I really want to believe it’s Tool with Prison Sex. I want to believe they are not cruel enough to say “prison” knowing that Tool is hugely requested and that Prison Sex would be the first thing to pop into many people’s mind. I want to believe that they would say “jailhouse” instead of “prison” if it was Elvis. I want to believe their Christmas gift to players this year will be Tool — finally.

I want to believe.

Unfortunately it’s not Tool, sorry to get your hopes up but maybe one day it will happen 🙂

FYI: We have no idea what the DLC is, it will be a surprise to us as well!

Thanks for letting me down now instead of allowing me to cling onto something that I already know won’t happen 🙂 Tool in the list of my favorite bands, but I wish they would relax with their anti-digital stance. I understand they are free to make the choice, though.

Guess I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Cash now.

Think I’m missing what everyone is predicting for the last pack of the year. So what’s the general thought for “..headed to prison”?
Elvis? Surely it could be that easy.

….and no I’m not calling you Surely.

Well that prison hint made me think of Alcatrazz at first, but that’s more likely one of the proposition you’ve put. I like them all btw, so just wait and see what Santa Rocksmith brings to us before Christmas 🙂

Alcatraz ? Maybe its a Michael Bay pack *mind explode in a very over the top , 360 camera spin in slow motion -- ._.explode *

I will be happy no matter what comes out because: rocksmith makes me happy everyday!

that being said, I am hoping for more Smashing Pumpkins in 2018!

I don’t know how or where it would fit, but I’d like to see some Tom Petty, like a whole pack. Because, well… you know.

Ok, elephant in the room. First off, (without considering how amazing the rest of the year has been) I’m sad to see we have another year without some new P-Funk. (Maggot Brain, Mothership Connection, AquaBoogie, etc) If we were to see the long overdue return of RHCP, that’s good enough for me. (especially if Around the World is included)

For another long awaited return, I would also like to see the Stones. Been hoping for Gimmie Shelter. Then of course another major return that has for whatever reason been missed, ERIC CLAPTON. Could Ubisoft somehow have found success there?

As for going to jail, the first artist I thought about was Elvis; however, I’d much rather see B.B. King Live From the Cook County Jail. I’ve always wanted to learn How Blue Can You Get. (ooh, imagine that B.B. and Eric in the same month. That would be epic.) Yeah, I’m dreaming big, but how crafty would that be to end 2017 Riding with the King?

If we end the year with RHCP, KOL, A7X, FOB and SOAD songs I would die of joy. The Silversun Pickups song in Rocksmith was awesome. Although my new baritone is asking me for low tunings songs!

The run/fly clue made me think “Jet Airliner”. I’m hoping Nirvana for the encore, but the way the speculation was worded made me think maybe Clapton finally allowed the imports from the original . “Jailhouse..” and Folsom..” were exactly where my mind went on the prison clue.

KoL and Elvis, nope. Most of the others -- Shut up and take my money.

Mike Oldfield has Shadow on the Wall, very prison-ish. Hope for Moonlight Shadow and Tubular Bells!

I’d buy an Oldfield pack in an instant -- but sadly, I can’t see that being the track here.

My dream would be RHCP and Tool but I’ll settle for Judas Priest and Johnny Cash
