Rocksmith has been teaching people how to play rock for about a decade now, and Ubisoft has successfully brought the franchise back at Forward E3. The company announced Rocksmith+, a new subscription service that allows users to practice their shredding from the comfort of home.
Blacksmith + not just another iteration of the game. It provides a number of additional services to those who use it for the purpose of learning how to play an instrument. The game will help aspiring musicians play acoustic, electric or bass guitar. To make the process even better, users can get real-time feedback if they connect their device to a PC. A riff repeater was also added to the game allowing the user to control the speed of the songs. Finally, players will have access to a huge library of songs to play and practice with, with new additions every week.
As usual, players will be able to connect their instruments to a console or PC. Players can also use the phone as a microphone for their instrument.
Streamlined tab view also comes with Blacksmith +. Ttabs are essentially a more streamlined way to see how music is played on a stringed instrument, placing numbers representing each fret on the lines showing each string. Players will also be able to create their own tabs for others to play with.
Blacksmith + is set to be released this year. However, anyone who wants to start learning an instrument today can sign up Blacksmith + PC closed beta on the service’s website.
