Ubisoft 'Rocksmith' Tour hits Europe this summer

Ubisoft Rocksmith Tour kicks off in Germany

Ubisoft's Rocksmith Tour bus will head to Europe this summer starting June 1, following its road trip throughout the United States.

The double-decker tour bus will tour European rock festivals until September 9 and allow festival-goers to play the game and participate in multiplayer competitions to win real guitars.

Rocksmith is an educational tool that lets users plug a lead into the jack port of a real guitar and learn to play the instrument through a series of Guitar Hero-style minigames.

The game will release in Europe on October 12 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and later on PC, nearly one year since its North American.
