Rock Band 4 now supports the on-disc setlist of Rock Band 3. To get these 83 songs, you’ll need to download them as DLC, under the title Rock Band 3 Export Pack.

Xbox One and North American PS4 players have had access for a week, but with the addition of European PSN support it should work everywhere as long as your local weekly PSN update has arrived. PS4 users will have to download the tracks individually, unfortunately.

The feature is initiated through the in-game menu and works by automatically verifying your ownership of Rock Band 3 based on console network ID. Harmonix said that users who believe they’re entitled to the content but haven’t beed verified should contact its customer support.

Below you’ll find instructions for both consoles. Make sure you’re connected to the Internet and logged in with a console profile that owns Rock Band 3 to proceed.

Harmonix said recently it’s making export of other game libraries a priority, although you will need to have exported these older games in the past.
