Rock On - Rock Band Rivals Is Available Now

Today marks the day that the sound check is complete once again as Rock Band expands to new venues, modes and more with the release of Rock Band Rivals.

“I’m incredibly proud of what the team has accomplished with Rock Band Rivals,” said Daniel Sussman, Rock Band Rivals product manager. “Both Rivals mode and Rockudrama introduce completely new and incredibly fun ways to play Rock Band. I can’t wait for Rock Band fans everywhere to experience their band’s comically tragic story and begin their climb up on the leaderboards.”

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. At the beginning of each challenge, crews will be assigned to one of six tiers. When a challenge ends, the best crews will ascend to a new tier, while underperforming crews will face demotion. As crews get promoted they’ll earn badges and face stiffer competition in their quest to earn their place amongst the elite in the highest tier - Bloodstone.

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.

With the free Rock Band Rivals Companion App, players will be able to coordinate with their crews no matter where they are. Within the app players can access details about the weekly challenge, manage their crew roster, message other members of their crew and monitor their crew’s progress during weekly challenges.

The game can be bought with either the guitar controller or the full band experience, but if you already have a copy of Rock Band 4 and a compatible controller, you can purchase the digital version to expand your rock collection.
