ROCK BAND WORLD COMPANION APPLICATION ANNOUNCED,
COMING SOON TO FACEBOOK FOR ROCK BAND BLITZ AND ROCK BAND 3!
Cambridge, Mass. – August 22nd, 2012 – Harmonix is excited to announce an exciting new social application for Rock Band™ Blitz and Rock Band 3 players - Rock Band World!
Coming to Facebook alongside the release of Rock Band Blitz this August, Rock Band World is a brand new full-featured companion application that will allow players to collaborate and compete with other Rock Band fans using the world’s largest social network! Players can work alone, team up with friends, or band together with the Rock Band community to complete Goals. Rockers can also directly challenge their friends (or rivals!) to Score Wars to see who’s got the best Rock Band Blitz chops!
“When designing Rock Band World we wanted to extend the player experience beyond the console in exciting new and social ways,” said Project Director Matthew Nordhaus. “By letting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players link both Rock Band Blitz and Rock Band 3 to their large, already established social network, we’re opening up some great opportunities for competitive and collaborative gameplay. We can’t wait to start engaging the community with weekly Goals, and we look forward to seeing how fierce competition can get with Rock Band Blitz Score Wars!”
Rock Band World adds new ways to play for Rock Band Blitz players, but also adds value for fans of Rock Band 3! Players will be able to browse the 3800+ song Rock Band catalog, get detailed statistics on their own in-game performance, and much more!
Rock Band Blitz is scheduled for release on PlayStation®Network on August 28th for $14.99 and Xbox LIVE Arcade on August 29th for 1200 MS Points. For the latest assets, including screenshots and the game logo, please visit http://www.rockband.com/press/blitz.
