Rock Band 4 getting online multiplayer and expansion0 Comments
Harmonix attended PAX East over the weekend and used the convention to help spread news of their plans for Rock Band 4. Their blog has kept a roadmap going since the launch of Rock Band 4, but these latest updates showcase what players should expect during the rest of 2016. Most updates aren't too game changing and include the addition of Battleborn characters Miko and Thorn in May. In June, practice mode is finally being added.
More exciting than these additions, however, is what's set to come throughout fall and the holiday season. It appears Harmonix's gift to players will be synchronous online multiplayer. This is something fans have been clamoring for since before the release of Rock Band 4. Here's hoping they do meet their schedule, as I, for one, would love to take online multiplayer for a spin.
There's also the matter of an expansion pack which was announced for fall. Unfortunately, the company are being extremely quiet about this right now. All we really know is that apparently it's adding "brand new, never before seen features." Sure, that could be awesome, but actual details will make or break this announcement. The expansion is also going to be paid. No price was specified, either.
Rock Band 4 will also finally receive some much needed music library features at the same time. These include the ability to filter the track list by genre and rate songs. It's honestly surprising such core features were left out for this long, but at least they're finally being added in.
