Rocksmith+, Ubisoft’s learn-to-play-guitar game, finally rocks out next week

Remember Rocksmith? Released for consoles in 2011 and PC a year later, it was a lot like Guitar Hero except it used a real guitar, which you’d connect to your PC via a Real Tone USB cable. DLC development for the 2014 edition was finally halted in 2020 (opens in new tab), but Ubisoft resurrected it a year later as Rocksmith+ (opens in new tab), and announced today that it’s just one week away from release.

Rocksmith+ is very similar to the original game, but different in some significant ways. It’s exclusive to PC this time around, and while you can still connect your guitar (you need a guitar, by the way) to your system with the Real Tone cable, you can also skip that part and use the Rocksmith+ Connect mobile app, which tracks your playing by turning your phone into a mic.
