Over 50 Rocksmith songs will be on the soundtrack for this real-guitar music game being developed by Ubisoft.
The hook here is that you can plug any real guitar into the game, and the game literally teaches you how to play that song on your actual real-life guitar!
To accomplish this you will play by using an interface that mirrors the neck of a real guitar with numbers and colors denoting which string to strum and hit as they head towards the fret bar onscreen.
The game has no difficulty level, with the goal being to level-up songs as you learn them in real life; With you starting out with arrangements of single notes, chords, or full charts with a minimalist version, then graduating with more notes until you are playing the entire song in real-life fullbore!
It’ll be interesting to see if this music game will revolutionize or lit a new fire under the slagging music game genre; which has been replaced with Dance games in recent times. However Rocksmith is not the first game to try using a real guitar (Rock Band 3 and Power Gig: Rise of the SixString.
