The release date for Rock Band: Blitz has been announced. Harmonix's downloadable music game will be available on the PlayStation Network on August 28 and Xbox Live Arcade on August 29. It'll run you $14.99.
If you're unfamiliar with the game, it uses your existing catalog of songs from Rock Band games and puts them in the context of a fast-paced arcade game, no plastic instruments needed. Rock Band Blitz will ship with more than 20 songs from music’s biggest artists, including music from Blink-182, Foster the People, and Iron Maiden.
The following songs were announced today:
- Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away”
- Fun. ft. Janelle Monáe – “We Are Young”
- Kool & The Gang – “Jungle Boogie”
- My Chemical Romance – “Sing”
The compatibility works both ways: If you buy Blitz, you'll also be able to use all the songs from the game in Rock Band 3.
