New Rock Band DLC announced - ends drought of new songs

It has been 21 months since the last DLC release for Rock Band 3, so it may come as some surprise that Harmonix today announced a variety of new songs to download.

New tracks from Arctic Monkeys (R U Mine?), Avenged Sevenfold (Shepherd of Fire) and Foo Fighters (Something from Nothing) are now available to download on Xbox 360, while PlayStation 3 owners in Europe must wait until January 21st. Each song costs $1.99 or €1.49.

Harmonix isn’t trying to get fans’ hopes up though. It maintains that this does not mark the start of a regular release schedule. Instead, these songs are something of a “special treat.” Perhaps Harmonix is testing the waters. Or perhaps it adds weight to the rumour that there will be a Rock Band release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Apparently, Harmonix may not be the only developer ready to dip its toe back into the rock star simulator game. Reports from PSU suggest that Activision is working on a new Guitar Hero game.

Both developers have refused to put a nail in their respective franchises. In 2011, Activision said that Guitar Hero was on hiatus, while Harmonix has often said that Rock Band is a franchise that remains close to its heart.
