HARMONIX LAUNCHES NEW FIG CAMPAIGN FOR ‘ROCK BAND 4’ ON PC
Campaign Includes Return of User-Generated Content Via Rock Band Network
Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. has today commenced a Fig crowdfunding campaign to bring Rock Band™ 4 to PC players. During the next 35 days, fans will get the chance to own a piece of Rock Band history by going to (https://www.fig.co/campaigns/rock-band-4-pc) to support the project and make their Rock Band dreams come true.
Targeting a release on Steam in Fall 2016, the PC version will truly democratize video game revenue in two ways. First, supporters are given the option of backing the game for traditional rewards or becoming an investor in the project through Fig to receive a percentage of game revenues. Secondly, Rock Band 4 for PC will provide players with the tools to author their own songs, bringing user-generated content back to Rock Band! Players can submit their own songs to the Rock Band Network via Steam Workshop, making them playable by everyone in the Rock Band 4 community on Steam.
Rock Band 4 on consoles is an expanding platform receiving new updates every month, and the PC version of Rock Band 4 will launch with the same features and content updates from the console game. After release, it will continue to be updated alongside the console versions. Highlighted features include:
- World Tour Campaign Mode
- Freestyle Guitar Solos
- 65 songs included “out of the box”, plus up to 33 additional songs for backers on Fig
- 1,700+ additional playable songs available as downloadable content
- Wireless guitar, drum kit and next-generation microphone support.
Harmonix sees Fig as the logical evolution of crowdfunding. With options to become a backer or investor, Harmonix and Fig are delighted to offer the opportunity to participate in the creation and potential success of Rock Band 4 on PC (https://www.fig.co/campaigns/rock-band-4-pc).
