Rock Band Blitz Dated And Priced

Rock Band Blitz, the plastic instrument-free downloadable spinoff game from series creator Harmonix, was announced back in the Spring with no firm release date other than a projected summer time frame. Now, platform-specific release date and pricing details have been released for the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade title.

Rock Band Blitz will launch onto the PlayStation Network on August 28 for $14.99, and will become available to Xbox LIVE Arcade users on August 29, at a cost of 1200 Microsoft points. While the game will support all currently released downloadable songs and game exports in the series so far, it will come with 20 built-in songs, which will be compatible for regular instrument play in Rock Band 3.

Four additional in-game songs have also been announced:

  • Avenged Sevenfold – “So Far Away”
  • Fun ft. Janelle Monae – “We Are Young”
  • Kool & The Gang – “Jungle Boogie”
