The Fastest Way To Learn Guitar* Is Back with
New Features and New Tracklist 



Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced the new Rocksmith 2014 Edition, the next installment of the hit Rocksmith brand that has taught 1.4 million people worldwide how to play guitar. Rocksmith 2014 Edition will be available in October, and allows players to plug any real guitar or bass directly into their Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Sony PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system, PC or Mac® to begin their musical journey.

The first Rocksmith is already the fastest way to learn guitar according to a national U.S. study by Research Strategy Group Inc. Another study conducted by Toluna Group reported that 95% of Rocksmith players say it improved their guitar skills. In Rocksmith 2014 Edition players will experience an even more efficient and enjoyable method of learning guitar.

With a completely redesigned interface and all-new features, Rocksmith 2014 Edition is tailored to better teach the key elements of guitar playing, and to make learning faster and more fun than any other method.  A new fully customisable “Riff Repeater” lets players select any section of a song they want to play, and adjust the difficulty and speed on-the-fly.  A new “Master Mode” makes playing by memory more approachable and new “Guitarcade” mini-games have been created to hone specific guitar skills.  With these flexible and deep practice tools, it’s never been easier for players to play their favourite songs on guitar or bass.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition also features a new track list with more than 50 hit tracks, including “Stone” by Alice In Chains, “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan, “The Chimera” by The Smashing Pumpkins, “Don’t Look Back In Anger” by Oasis, “ultra soul” by B’z, a famous pop-rock Japanese band. Many more hits will be announced in the coming months.

On stage at E3, Ubisoft demonstrated Session Mode, a groundbreaking technology that enables players of any skill level to play guitar with a virtual band that jams along with them. Players can select the style of music and the particular instruments they’d like to accompany them and the rest happens dynamically, adapting live while they play.

Jerry Cantrell of multi-platinum rock band, Alice In Chains said, “Rocksmith’s new Session Mode feature is one of the most innovative music technologies in recent history and gives you the experience of playing with a real band that actually adapts to you.  The new Rocksmith 2014 Edition teaches real techniques for players of all skill levels.”

“In only one opus, Rocksmith has established itself as one of Ubisoft’s best-loved brands, with high player satisfaction scores confirming it is highly effective and enjoyable,” said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer at Ubisoft.  “We are bringing Rocksmith back, it’s better than ever, and it’s a brand we want to continue to build.”

Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft revealed that its biggest digital franchise, TrialsTM, is back with two new games, Trials Fusion and Trials Frontier, bringing the Trials universe to next-generation consoles, PC, smartphones and tablets. Trials Fusion and Trials Frontier will be available in 2014.

Trials Fusion will be the first Trials game designed for multiple platforms from day one, including Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Sony PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, PC and the Xbox® 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Trials Fusion retains many of the elements that made the original Trials game so popular, while enhancing the experience by adding new game-play elements such as a first-in-class physics-based trick system and new social features.

Trials also will make its first appearance on mobile devices with Trials Frontier, allowing for the Trials competition to follow players wherever they go, since both games will be connected. Developing the newest iteration in the Trials franchise was a natural move for RedLynx, a Ubisoft studio, who also is behind the success of the other popular mobile titles Draw RaceTM 2 and MotoHeroz®.

Trials is RedLynx’s signature franchise and has sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, including the critically acclaimed TrialsTM HD and Trials EvolutionTM. Trials Evolution broke the record for highest grossing day one sales in Xbox Live Arcade history.
