Yes Rocksmith has been around a good many year, and yes we have been fortunate enough to witness some delightful content additions on a weekly basis, but it’s still hard to believe that right now we are looking at the 21st Variety Pack add-on for Rocksmith. But that’s exactly what we have with the Rocksmith Variety Pack XXI.
And what a Variety pack it is with four tunes coming from a range of bands and a number of decades of musical delights, ensuring that a purchase of individual tunes, or the pack as a whole, will no doubt be something that many a Rocksmith guitarist will be looking to get involved with.
Priced up at £7.99, the Rocksmith Variety Pack XXI contains the following tunes…
- The Regulator – Clutch
- Shimmer – Fuel
- Found Out About You – Gin Blossoms
- Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
Now, the chances of you being down with every single one of those tunes, is probably quite slim – due mainly to the gap in years from Werewolves… up to The Regulator – so instead of having to prise open the wallet in order to purchase the whole song pack, you can of course also worry about individual tunes. Should you be a big fan of Werewolves of London from the late 1970s, but don’t really fancy much of what Fuel deliver with Shimmer or just prefer the slow build up of The Regulator instead, then the opportunity is there. A £2.39 price is attached to each of the tunes above, allowing you to pick and choose your own variety.
Of course, in order to get involved you’ll want to be heading to a digital store near you, with the Xbox Store sorting out the Xbox One and Xbox 360 guitarists, whilst the PlayStation Store will enable the PS4 and PS3 axe-grinders the same downloading chances.
If none of the above take your fancy, then chances are you’ll find something from previous weeks that are more to your musical tastes. In fact, we’d be massively surprised if you can’t find a good number of songs from the multitude of DLC additions that have hit both Rocksmith 2014 Edition and Rocksmith Remastered over the year. Check out the lists on this link, and then let us know what you decide to pick up by posting in the comments.
Oh, and don’t forget to have a little read of our full review of Rocksmith on Xbox One, especially if you are intrigued by how the whole tutoring thing goes down in the gaming world. Little spoiler – it works, really, really well!
