You can get every Rock Band song ever for Rock Band 4 on PC ... for $2,500

Money money money money ... money

Rock Band 4 supports almost all the downloadable songs Harmonix has released for the Rock Band franchise, but the game's Windows PC version — if its crowdfunding campaign is successful — will require players to start anew with their DLC libraries. So the studio is offering a special discount to anyone who wants to buy in bulk: Harmonix introduced a new tier to Rock Band 4 PC's Fig campaign this week, offering backers a single purchase of the entire Rock Band DLC library for $2,500.

The reward tier "includes every single song still available in the Rock Band store when Rock Band 4 for PC launches," said Harmonix — an expected total of more than 2,000 tracks. (The exact number may fluctuate as music licenses expire and Harmonix has to stop selling certain songs.) While $2,500 is a lot of money to spend at once, the price does represent a significant discount over buying the tracks individually: Each song costs $1.99 on its own.

That includes all the Rock Band DLC tracks Harmonix has published since the debut of the original Rock Band on Nov. 20, 2007, all the way up to the PC version's planned release this fall. Harmonix has maintained a roughly weekly schedule of releasing new songs since the arrival of Rock Band 4 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last October.

As for offering this deal in the console versions of Rock Band 4, Harmonix said it is "looking into it."

Harmonix's crowdfunding campaign on Fig for the PC version of Rock Band 4 has pulled in $485,600 as of this writing — just under one-third of its $1.5 million goal. There are less than 11 and a half days remaining in the 35-day funding drive.
