Rock Band 4 hits tomorrow, October 6th for PS4 and Xbox One. The game looks to revive the music rhythm genre, getting players back in their living room, plastic guitar in hand. We have a full, comprehensive review available if you want a more overarching look at the game, and its mechanics, but for those that prefer us just chatting about the game and how it works, take a look at “This is Rock Band 4” below.
In the video I discuss my time with Rock Band 4 with Will, going over what’s changed, and more importantly, what hasn’t. Both of us have played RB4 before, along with its presumed rival, Guitar Hero Live. We do some comparisons and figure out which each of us might prefer, while going pretty deep into the mechanics of Rock Band 4.
The game presents a more traditional music game approach, even using the same instruments and DLC songs from the previous games. For those looking to get back into that party atmosphere, with its arcade-like gameplay presented firmly intact, then Rock Band 4 is a fairly safe bet.
However, some removed features could deter those that otherwise would be right on board. Check out the video to hear what all has been added and removed, and what we think of the entire package.
