The game features 60 songs, with the potential to include over 1,500 more thanks to its downloadable content catalog. The newest additions include "Tongue Tied" by Grouplove, "That Smell" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and "The One I Love" by R.E.M. These join the previously announced tracks from bands as diverse as St. Vincent, Van Morrison and Aerosmith.
Rock Band 4 is the first mainline title in the series since the 2010 release of Rock Band 3. The title will arrive on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will be backward compatible with any of the old Rock Band instruments you still have lying around. Brand new instruments developed by distributor Mad Catz will also be available at launch.
We went hands-on with the game at E3, where we tried new features like freestyle guitar solos, as well as got a feel for the new, "more rugged" instrument controllers.
Your chance to rock out is coming soon: the game hits stores on Oct. 6.
