The game will come with over 100 songs, with additional downloadable content available. Eventually, the tracklist will include pop, hip-hop, R&B, dance, rock, country, Latin and Caribbean music. The game will offer multiplayer and freestyle modes, plus live challenges.
Unlike most other music-making games, users won’t need a special controller to play. When the game arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC this fall, users will only need a standard gamepad.
Harmonix will offer hands-on demos at PAX East in Boston beginning tomorrow, and it’ll show the game off at EGX Rezzed in London next month.
