Ubisoft announced Rocksmith 2014 Edition featuring Kinect functionality during its E3 2013 press conference today.

As part of the announcement, Alice in Chains' frontman Jerry Cantrell performed on stage using the instructional guitar-playing game. Cantrell navigated the game's menu with Kinect voice commands during the demonstration. Rocksmith 2014 Edition will feature four instruments: guitar, drums, bass and keyboards. It will include several game modes, such as learn a song, guitarcade, techniques, session mode, non-stop play and multiplayer.
