Ubisoft's Rocksmith 2014 will support all of the original game's song DLC, which is something this genre overall has a spotty record (pun!) on. Developer Mike Madavi made the revelation during a Q&A video.
Additional news to delight fans is that the original game's cable is also supported by Rocksmith 2014, so no new bit of wire to hook up your guitar with PC or console; recycle the old.
Rocksmith 2014 Edition releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 October 18th. A Session Mode lets users jam with in-game musicians, while Master Mode helps memorisation.
Ubisoft choose the name 'Rocksmith 2014' to help encourage newcomers. "This is not the second step in guitar playing. Some people might interpret it that way. If you see Spanish 1 and then Spanish 2, you think that you need to learn Spanish 1 first," remarked SVP of sales and marketing, Tony Key. Rocksmith actually teaches how to play a real guitar.
