Beatles: Rock Band DLC To Feature Unique Backgrounds


Posted September 10, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

More Beatles DLC Albums Confirmed, Queen And Others Coming To Rock Band

This is the 4,378th reason The Beatles: Rock Band is the most awesome game ever: The game's downloadable tracks will feature unique backgrounds and animations.

Later Beatles tracks in the game feature animated "dreamscapes" done in the Beatles' psychedelic style, and each of the DLC tracks that take place in later years will feature its own background.

"DLC songs which don't end up in historical venues will have custom dreamscapes, yes," Dare Matheson Lead Artist on the game told Joystiq. "There will be visual themes and elements that will stretch from the on-disc dreamscapes into the DLC dreamscapes, but everyone is custom, unique, and fully-crafted for the song it will accompany. It's a bargain!" 

Yeah, it's a bargain -- the tracks will cost the Rock Band's usual $2.00 per.

Right now, three classic Beatles albums have been announced for DLC (Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Abbey Road) but I sincerely hope (and actually expect) that the entire Beatles catalog will be available eventually. How can you even call it a Beatles game without all of Revolver? Time will tell whether my prediction comes true, of course.
