Harmonix and Mad Catz have taken time out of their busy Rock Band 4 promotion schedule to let us know that Rock Band 4 is set to ship with access to over 1,700 tracks on day one. Including both their back catalog and new releases, that's a pretty damn huge music library, and considering that most of it is DLC, an expensive one too.
They also dropped off a new "Electric" trailer to coincide with tomorrow's big launch!
Our review is just about ready to go live, so make sure to check back soon for that.
With less than 24 hours until the release of Rock Band 4 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. and Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. are excited to announce the first tracks that will be available for download in the Rock Band Music Store.
