Next Addition to the Rock Band Family Out This Month
Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. and Performance Designed Products LLC (PDP) proudly announced today that Rock Band™ Rivals is launching across Europe on November 30th 2016. Rock Band Rivals introduces two all-new game modes as well as multiple new venues and Rock Shop items to Rock Band. Marking the much-anticipated return of online play to Rock Band, Rivals mode also represents the most dramatic shift to the Rock Band meta game since the franchise’s introduction in 2007.
In Rivals Mode, players band together to form crews of up to ten people to take on other crews around the world in a structured and ongoing series of uniquely themed gameplay challenges. At the beginning of each challenge, crews will be assigned to one of six tiers. When a challenge ends, the best crews will ascend to a new tier, while underperforming crews will face demotion. As crews get promoted they’ll earn badges and face stiffer competition in their quest to earn their place amongst the elite in the highest tier – Bloodstone.
