Harmonix has just launched a Fig crowd-funding campaign in order to bring Rock Band 4 to the PC. Harmonix aims to raise $1,5 million in the next 35 days, and plans to release the game on Steam in Fall 2016.
The PC version of Rock Band 4 will have ALL the same content and features as the console versions currently do:
- World Tour Campaign Mode
- Freestyle Guitar Solos
- 65 songs included “out of the box” – and you can get up to 33 additional songs if you back us here on Fig!
- 1700+ additional playable songs available as downloadable content
- Supporting wireless guitar controller, drum kit and next generation microphone
In addition, the PC version will include:
- Tools to author your own songs for play in the PC version of Rock Band 4 – submit them to Rock Band Network via Steam Workshop and share with the rest of the Rock Band 4 PC community!
- Mouse and computer keyboard support for menu navigation
- All feature and content updates from the console game. Rock Band 4 on the PC will have all of the updates released prior to its launch, and will continue to be updated alongside the console versions moving forward.
What’s also interesting here is that PC gamers will be able to put their songs in the game.
As Harmonix stated:
“With a PC version being released on Steam much of the infrastructure for adding songs to the game can be done via Steam Workshop, with no fees and less overhead. So we’re updating the authoring tools and documentation to help anyone with a song in their heart (and multi-track audio recordings, and some time….) to create playable Rock Band songs.
Then, using Steam Workshop, you can submit those files to us—we’ll do a quick check to make sure they play properly and include music you own, and then put them into the game via the Rock Band 4 in-game store. Steam Workshop makes sure you get your cut of the revenues when they sell.”
