Developer Harmonix confirmed that Rock Band 3‘s soundtrack will be coming to Rock Band 4 as part of a title update launching in December.

Returning Rock Band 3 players will need to pay a fee for the track-exporting process, which will add more than 80 songs to Rock Band 4‘s playable tracklist.

Rock Band 3, released in 2010 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii, features 83 songs with playable guitar, bass, drum, vocal, and keyboard tracks. After applying a Rock Band 4 software update slated for release in December, players will be able to import these songs for play in the latest series entry for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Harmonix notes that returning players will need to have played Rock Band 3 on a previous hardware generation in order to be eligible for the offer. Rock Band 4‘s importing process on the PlayStation 4 requires players to have booted up a PS3 copy of Rock Band 3 while logged in to the PlayStation Network, whereas Xbox One players need to have played the Xbox 360 version of Rock Band 3 while connected to Xbox Live.

Once players have verified their prior experience with Rock Band 3, they can purchase a key to unlock the game’s tracklist in Rock Band 4 for $15. While the majority of gameplay these tracks offer will be accessible in Rock Band 4, keyboard tracks are not playable due to Harmonix dropping keyboard accessory support.

Currently, it’s unclear whether Rock Band 3‘s tracklist will transfer over to Rock Band 4 in its entirety. Exports for previous Rock Band games omitted songs that were no longer under license by Harmonix, leaving tracks like Metallica’s Enter Sandman and Journey’s Any Way You Want It unavailable in subsequent series entries.

Harmonix notes that tracks from other previous Rock Band games will also transfer over to Rock Band 4 at a later date. Currently, players can download purchased tracks featured in the 2012 series spinoff Rock Band Blitz. Support for exported tracks from Rock Band, Rock Band 2, Lego Rock Band and various track packs is also in the works.

Rock Band 3‘s exported tracklist will be available in Rock Band 4 following the launch of a multiplatform title update on December 8th.
