Rock Band Rivals now Available with New Modes and Campaign


Rock Band Rivals is the first major expansion and Harmonix is not afraid of showing it a nice launch day.

What’s new in Rock Band Rivals? Well let us tell you. Rock Band Rivals introduces two all-new game modes as well as multiple new venues and Rock Shop items to Rock Band. Marking the much-anticipated return of online play to Rock Band, Rivals mode also represents the most dramatic shift to the Rock Band meta game since the franchise’s introduction in 2007. In Rivals Mode, players band together to form crews of up to ten people to take on other crews around the world in a structured and ongoing series of uniquely themed gameplay challenges.

Rockudrama is an all new campaign mode and the world’s first playable music documentary. Featuring a mix of live-action video, in-engine footage and classic Rock Band gameplay, Rockudrama dynamically tells the story of your band’s epic, and often hilarious, rise to fame. As players progress through their band’s memorable and winding road to glory, they will be introduced to a series of new venues and character assets that will be unlocked for play across all of Rock Band 4’s gameplay modes.

Releasing today alongside Rock Band Rivals is Rock Band Companion – a free app for iOS and Android devices that features Rivals-exclusive Crew Chat, plus Weekly Challenge data, Crew Moderation, and a 1:1 duplication of your in-game Activity Feed.
