Ships Ahoy - Rocksmith 2014 Edition

Ubisoft announces that Rocksmith 2014 Edition is now available for Windows and consoles, continuing this musical game series that can teach real guitar skills. Here's word:

Exclusively in Rocksmith 2014 Edition is the revolutionary Session Mode, a new technology developed in San Francisco that allows up to two users to play guitar alongside a virtual band that follows their every lead in real-time. Players choose the style of music and from over 70 instruments they’d like to play with, and on-screen prompts help the player learn how to improvise and jam live with a band.

Core to the Rocksmith learning experience is the new Instant Riff Repeater which lets players choose the difficulty, speed and section of each track they play, helping them focus on the particular sections that they struggle with the most. Players are now in full control of their learning pace and can master every part of the songs they want to learn.

Jerry Cantrell, lead guitarist and vocalist of Alice In Chains says, “I wish I had Rocksmith when I was learning guitar.” Jim Rosenberg, President of Epiphone Guitars states, “Rocksmith is the most fun and effective way to improve your guitar skills.”

Rocksmith 2014 Edition includes over 50 songs, including hits by Aerosmith, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Muse, Nirvana, Pantera, Queen, Radiohead, Rise Against, Slayer, System Of A Down, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Weezer, and many more. For the full list of tracks, please visit www.Rocksmith.com

Players who already own the previous version of Rocksmith (released in 2011) will be able to further enjoy their rock experience in Rocksmith 2014 Edition by importing 52 songs from the original Rocksmith for $9.99. Each song from the first version has been revamped to support all of the new features. Additionally, previous DLC purchased for Rocksmith will be compatible with Rocksmith 2014 Edition at no extra cost.

I played the hell out of Rocksmith 1, not much lately however as most of my time has been devoted to the drums.

It's not clear to me from the Rocksmith website that the game supports bass out of the box; bass was an add-on for the original version. Can someone comment on the availability of bass performance?

Thank you jacobvandy for the info on the song differences between XBox and PC. I am decidedly a PC gamer, but I liked Rocksmith on the XBox so that I could alternate between playing on the couch or standing in front of the big screen. My PC desk setup just isn't optimal for standing. The computer I have connected to my big screen is a 1.9 GHz AMD with Radeon integrated graphics. I'm thinking that should be adequate to run Rocksmith (though I can't find any minimum specs listed), but that computer isn't as convenient.

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
