Today, Harmonix made a bunch of Queen songs available through download. This includes 5 totally new Queen songs for Rock Band 3, along with upgrades for Queen songs that have been featured previously in the series.
The songs are divided into two packs, the Queen Extravaganza Pack 01 and the Queen RB3 Enhanced Pack.
The Queen Extravaganza Pack 01 features mostly new content and includes “Hammer to Fall,” “Keep Yourself Alive,” “Now I’m Here,” “Tenement Funster” and “Play the Game.” The pack also includes “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You,” which were previously featured in Lego Rock Band. Each song is available for $1.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3 and $2.00 for Wii (Take that Wii owners! Pay an extra cent!). Of course you can buy the whole pack for $10.99.
The Queen RB3 Enhanced Pack features updated versions of Queen songs included in past Rock Band games, these are “I Want It All,” “I Want to Break Free,” “Killer Queen,” “One Vision,” “Somebody to Love” and “Under Pressure.” This pack costs $9.99, with the same price for individual song purchases.
All the songs available for download (except “We are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You”) can be upgraded with Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for an extra $0.99 a song.
