Rock Band Blitz power-up gameplay shown in new trailer

Tuesday, 29th May 2012 03:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

In a new trailer for Rock Band Blitz, project lead Matthew Nordhaus describes the downloadable title as “faster-paced” than Rock Band, and having “more to keep track of”. This is an understatement.

You’ll get a good look at the game’s multi-instrument gameplay in the video below; note that it’s showing a single-player experience, and you have to switch between the different tracks. The first power up discussed allows you to double up with an AI bandmate temporarily, which should make things less confusing, while the next just makes life even more frantic by adding a pinball to the mix, which you’ll have to bat back and forth. Argh.

Looks good though. The downloadable is due via both major console networks in the third quarter. Check out the first 15 announced songs here.

Thanks, Shack.

    Am I the only one seriously excited for this? I was hoping for something along the lines of RB: Unplugged in this one, and it seems to be tilting that way. This looks like the kind of game where you can enjoy the musical experience of rockband without having superhuman reflexes for any of the instruments, although that is what makes rockaband, rockband.

    I’m also excited for this but don’t know much about RB Unplugged. The reason I’m liking this is because it throws out stupid and gimmicky plastic stuff and focuses on fast, crazy note mashing gameplay that the genre had before Guitar Hero boom.
