You won’t need plastic instruments to jam along to Harmonix’s latest Rock Band game. Revealed on G4 today, Rock Band Blitz turns players into a one-man band, making them play all the instruments with a gamepad in a song in an arcade-style experience that harkens back to the dev studio’s Frequency and Amplitude games.

You’ll be able to use all the playable tracks in the Rock Band back catalogue, jumping from guitar part to drums to bass whenever you want. And if you buy games through Blitz, those purchases will work with Rock Band 3 as well. No word on pricing yet but Rock Band Blitz will be available for download on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

    Simply Amazing!!!! Loved Frequency/Amplitude and the lesser Rock Band Unplugged, take my money now!

  • Sweet! It was fairly obvious we weren’t going to be getting RB4 anytime soon, so this is a nice little extra. At the very worst, it’s a track pack for RB3!
