Rocksmith finally serenades PCs in October

Rocksmith finally serenades PCs in October

It’s taken a fair old while for ’s guitar learning and training tool to make it to PCs (hell, it came out on Xbox 360 and PS3 in the US last year), but October is the month when prospective string-botherers can give it a go. Console owners in Europe who’ve been waiting to get hold of it should be able to purchase it from today.

Anybody who pre-orders the game will get instant access to the title’s closed beta period (which will wrap up on 12 October) and a pair of additional in-game ‘packs’. These are described as follows:

• Heavy Metal – Gear Pack: Specially designed for heavy metal and rock guitar tones, this Gear Pack includes: the RSMP-12, a custom high-gain amp and extended bass response 4×12 cabinet; the Caverb, a “cavernous” reverb pedal; the SicSicSicS, a solo boost pedal; and the Scooped, an active parametric EQ pedal.
• Guitarcade Mini-Games: This Time Saver Pack gives you access to all Guitarcade mini-games.

Rocksmith is available on in Europe from 10 October, and in the US from 16 October.

Remember, if you’re buying the game digitally (or at retail without the added guitar) you’ll need an actual real life guitar of your own to get anything out of this title. You’ll also have to buy a Rocksmith Real Tone Cable, either online or from a physical shop.
