Ubisoft Reveals A Slew Of New Tracks For Rocksmith

We've already told you about Rocksmith, Ubisoft's foray into the rhythm-and-music game genre. The title brings something new to the table.

Unlike Rock Band or Guitar Hero, players of Rocksmith will be challenged to use a real guitar. No, seriously. The French developer promises that the title will come packaged with "a unique quarter-inch USB cable that is the first of its kind, allowing users to plug any real guitar with a quarter-inch jack directly into their favourite console."

Ubisoft has gone ahead and updated the list of tracks they plan to make available, swelling the total number to 29.

The newly announced tunes are:

• Best Coast – "When I'm With You" • Blur – "Song 2" • The Black Keys – "Next Girl" • The Boxer Rebellion – "Step Out Of The Car" • Cream – "Sunshine Of Your Love" • The Cribs – "We Share The Same Skies" • The Cure – "Boys Don't Cry" • Jenny O – "Well OK Honey" • Lynyrd Skynyrd –" Sweet Home Alabama" • Nirvana – "Breed" • Pixies – "Where Is My Mind?" • Radiohead – "High and Dry" • Red Fang – "Number Thirteen" • The Rolling Stones – "The Spider and the Fly" • Silversun Pickups – "Panic Switch" • Soundgarden - "Outshined" • Spoon –" Me and The Bean" • Stone Temple Pilots – "Vasoline" • Taddy Porter – "Mean Bitch" • Titus Andronicus – "A More Perfect Union" • White Denim – "Burnished" • The White Stripes – "Icky Thump" • Yellow Moon Band - "Chimney"

With the previously announced songs as follows:

• The Animals – "House of the Rising Sun" • The Black Keys – "I Got Mine" • David Bowie – "Rebel Rebel" • Interpol – "Slow Hands" • Nirvana – "In Bloom" • The Rolling Stones – "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"

Rocksmith is slated for release this spring on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. You can follow the title on Facebook, or check out the official website.


    I think I might buy this, for a price of a couple guitar lessons.

    Being able to use my own guitar is a big draw.

    Rock Band 3 let's you use the Fender supported Squier Stratocaster and using the MIDI Pro Adapter and a laptop others have actually had success using their own electric guitars in the game. So the line:

    "Unlike Rock Band or Guitar Hero, players of Rocksmith will be challenged to use a real guitar."

    Is incorrect.

    I wish that RB3's Squier & Guitar compatibility (As limited as it may be) was made clearer and more public lol.

    Oh hell to the motherfracking yes! Love the set list.

    But, rocksmith's interface is horrible D:
