on October 5, 2015 9:05 AM

In less than 24 hours, you’ll be able to get back up on the stage and get ready to rock with Rock Band 4 – luckily, if you have a collection of vintage DLC tracks from previous games, you can start going through and downloading them now for an even bigger setlist at launch tomorrow.

Developer Harmonix detailed in a new blog post that downloading and updating DLC tracks from previous games for tomorrow’s release of Rock Band 4 is now available on both PS4 and Xbox One.

“DLC entitlements” of previous songs are only available for consoles within the same family (PS3 > PS4 or Xbox 360 > Xbox One), and the steps for downloading previously-purchased DLC songs for Rock Band 4 are below:

HOW TO RE-DOWNLOAD YOUR LEGACY ROCK BAND DLC ON XBOX ONE:

  1. Turn on your Xbox One.
  2. Sign in to the Xbox Live Gamertag that you originally purchased your legacy Rock BandDLC on.
  3. Navigate to the Xbox Live Marketplace titled “Store”.
  4. Select “Search”.
  5. Search for “Rock Band 4
  6. You will see multiple products for the title. Select the game “Rock Band 4“.
  7. Navigate to “Add-Ons” and select the ellipses (the big “…” at the bottom of the featured Add-Ons) to view all Add-Ons.
  8. Select the individual Add-On you want to download. There will be a monetary value on an individual Add-On if you did not previously purchase the product. If you purchased it previously, select “Install”.
  9. The download should automatically begin. Once completed, you should see that where the “Install” prompt used to be on this individual Add-On, it will now say “Installed”.
  10. There will be no update to notify you that this content has completed downloading. There is no visible way to confirm if your DLC has been installed to your console until you first launch Rock Band 4 on that console. The content should be on your hard drive, but will remain invisible until you first play Rock Band 4.
  11. Repeat step 8 for as many Add-Ons as you would like downloaded to your console.
  12. And that’s it! You can now play this content in Rock Band 4 when the game is loaded into your system!

  8. Filter the list to see ONLY “Free” Add-Ons.

  10. You should see individual DLC tracks come up as “Purchased”. These are the entitlements that you are able to re-download based on your account’s purchase history.
  11. Select the individual Add-On you want to download and select “Download”.
  12. The download should automatically begin and be added to your PlayStation®4 Downloads. Once completed, you should see that where the “Download” prompt used to be on this individual Add-On, it will now say “Installed”.
