Rock Band 4 Announced

In a blog post today, developer Harmonix announced Rock Band 4, a new entry in their beloved Rock Band franchise coming out later this year for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.  Longtime fans will be pleased to hear that anyone who has purchased songs for previous Rock Band titles will be able to download them to Rock Band 4, free of charge, once they become available.

I’m personally very excited for a new Rock Band; I played a lot of Rock Band and Guitar Hero in college, and I feel there has been enough of a break since the last entries for people to really get excited about a new one again.  I quite enjoyed learning how to play with those silly plastic instruments, and it will be…interesting to see how I do after all these years (spoiler: I’m sure I’m super rusty and not any good anymore).
