Well, who saw this coming! Rocksmith 2014 is out for Xbox One and PS4 tomorrow, and the DLC has slowly been releasing over the course of the day. While most of it has been old DLC, there was one interesting release with 5 Tom Petty songs being put out. Why is this so interesting? Well, the only Tom Petty in the game is Good Enough from Rocksmith and Mary Jane’s Last Dance from Rocksmith 2014. Featuring 2 solo Petty tunes and 3 with his band The Heartbreakers, this also marks the first time some of these tracks will be released as DLC in their original studio versions!
These songs seem to be purchasable right now, but only for the new versions. Could the Tom Petty tracks be a timed exclusive to the One/PS4 versions, or is this simply a case of something going out in to the wild by accident? I’m strongly leaning toward the latter, but having timed exclusive DLC could be Ubisoft trying to add extra motivation to upgrade to the newer versions. The only thing that we know for sure is that there IS indeed Tom Petty DLC coming to Rocksmith, and I for one couldn’t be happier (even if there’s no sign of Don’t Come Around Here No More…)!
