A just-revealed game-feature: Three-part vocal harmonies... sweeeet!
According to Harmonix, The Beatles: Rock Band's story mode will take fans on an "interactive, experiential journey through The Beatles career." That journey includes venues, set lists, clothing and instruments from the band’s rise to fame, represented in The Beatles' touring period from 1963 to 1966 and their studio days from 1966 to 1969.
The game begins during the band’s earliest days at The Cavern Club in Liverpool, England. Gamers will then travel across the Atlantic to experience the band’s unforgettable 1964 performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, the sold-out concert at New York’s Shea Stadium in 1965, and conclude at The Beatles’ memorable concert at Budokan in Tokyo, Japan in 1966.
The Beatles’ studio years will come to life in Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. Highlighting the studio years are visual expressions known as Dreamscapes, intended to "transport players to imaginative environments that capture the essence of The Beatles’ genre-busting musical and fashion transformations during their later years."
The game follows The Beatles to 1969 where story mode culminates with their final performance on the rooftop of the Apple Corps Headquarters.
