Earlier this year, at PAX East, I had the opportunity to play a bit of Rock Band Blitz, and let me tell you, it was pretty bad ass. It was easily one of those games that I just couldn’t wait to play again. After waiting, and waiting, and WAITING, Harmonix has finally announced the release date and pricing for Rock Band Blitz, previously scheduled for “Summer 2012.” Do you remember Frequency and Amplitude? Those were Harmonix before their Rock Band days, and those are the strongest influences for Rock Band Blitz.
Rock Band Blitz will be available on PSN August 28th for $14.99, and on XBLA August 29th for 1200MSP.
Along with the date/pricing announcement, four new tracks were revealed:
- Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away”
- Fun. ft. Janelle Monáe – “We Are Young”
- Kool & The Gang – “Jungle Boogie”
- My Chemical Romance – “Sing”
