Supported by Epiphone® Guitars, the most enjoyable way to learn the guitar

London, UK – March 15, 2012 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that Rocksmith™, an innovative, efficient and fun way to learn how to play the guitar, will be released on September 14, 2012 in the UK for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 and later on Windows PC/MAC. Highly acclaimed in North America, Rocksmith is a revolution in the music game genre: for the first time ever, players can plug any real electric guitar into their Xbox 360 console, PlayStation®3 or PC/MAC. No more plastic, no more button bashing: Rocksmith is the real thing for those who are serious about guitar learning and playing. The UK version of Rocksmith will include the original game already released in North America plus exclusive additional content.

“Rocksmith has already seduced hundreds of thousands in North America and we are very proud to bring this game into our territories”, said Geoffroy Sardin, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Ubisoft EMEA. “The main reason for this success is that Rocksmith offers so much more than previous guitar games: the possibility to actually master a real instrument. “

An authentic guitar learning experience

Rocksmith’s magic is thanks to the exclusive Real Tone Cable™ provided with the game. It’s as simple as plugging the quarter-inch jack into any electric guitar and the USB plug to any USB port of the Xbox 360 console, PlayStation®3 or PC/MAC. The cable and software transform the analog signal of the guitar into a digital one that can be heard through TV speakers or any other stereo amplifier.
Anyone from beginners to seasoned guitar players will find in Rocksmith what they’ve always been looking for: an enjoyable learning experience that automatically adjusts to their skill level so they can progress at their own speed. Moreover, the innovative game design makes reading music visually fun and intuitive: no more need for wannabe guitarists to go through music theory or tabs before having a blast playing their favourite tunes for real.
Even the most challenging of Rocksmith’s 50+ outstanding tracks can be mastered with the help of the “Guitarcade" mini-games that develop techniques such as shifting between frets, learning chords and harmonics. Last but not least, the riff repeater will give them the possibility to replay a riff as many times as they need to master it perfectly.

The ultimate guitar tracklist with the latest hits and classic rock songs!

Thanks to Rocksmith, players will not only learn how to play the guitar: they will master an amazing array of the most iconic rock and indie songs. The game includes over 50 tracks from classic rock bands to current international artists, such as:
· Blur – Song 2
· David Bowie – Rebel Rebel
· Eric Clapton – Run Back To Your Side
· Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out
· Incubus – I Miss You
· Interpol – Slow Hands
· Lenny Kravitz – Are You Gonna Go My Way
· Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama
· Muse – Unnatural Selection
· Nirvana – In Bloom
· Pixies – Where Is My Mind?
· Queens Of The Stone Age – Go With The Flow
· Radiohead – High And Dry
· The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
· The White Stripes – Icky Thump
· Velvet Revolver – Slither
