Rocksmith 2014 Edition – Remastered on Xbox One

Rocksmith 2014 Edition just received a rather significant update on the Xbox One that added a variety of new features and refinements and updates it into a full new version of the video game called, Rocksmith 2014 Edition: Remastered.

The game is a legitimately useful tool for teaching players how to play guitar. Through the use of a connecting cable, Rocksmith 2014 Edition: Remastered uses a real guitar and takes players through a variety of structured lessons that cover everything from guitar basics through to more advanced levels of musical skill.

This new Remastered version of the game adds a new customizable learning curve, improved practice tools, stat tracking, and revamped menus. The update is free for those that already have the original Rocksmith 2014 Edition and a physical copy of Rocksmith 2014 Edition: Remastered is also now available in stores.

While a lot of the game requires the user to purchase downloadable content, the Xbox One version will come with six free songs; Bob Marley & The Wailers – Three Little Birds, Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds, FUN. – Some Nights, Jackson 5 – I Want You Back, Outkast – Hey Ya!, and Train – Drops of Jupiter. The Xbox 360 version will also get the update but users on that console will not get these free songs.
