New Rocksmith DLC Makes You Wish For a Cowbell Peripheral

on January 17, 2012 6:00 PM

Bruce Dickinson, yes the Bruce Dickinson, would feel right at home with the latest track offerings for Ubisoft’s Rocksmith. Heart’s “Barracuda,” David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and Blue Öyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper” are now available for the rhythm game that says it can help you learn these songs for real. Each song individually will cost $2.99, or 240 Microsoft Points.

These three songs bring the total DLC count for Rocksmith to 21. The rhythm title is slowly but surely building a decent catalog, already boasting such classic tracks as Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water” and Boston’s “More Than A Feeling.” Too bad the game only supports electric guitars at the moment. Otherwise you could have a pretty great time re-enacting that Christopher Walken/Will Ferrel sketch. What’s that? Played out, you say?
