U2 track pack out now for Rock Band 4, including hits One and Vertigo

More U2 tracks coming to Rock Band 4!
Harmonix’s Rock Band 4 gets a collection of Irish band U2’s biggest hits this week as downloadable content, including chart-topping favorites like One and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

U2’s add-on songs, priced at $2 apiece, feature playable guitar, bass, drum, and vocal charts compatible with Rock Band 4 instrument peripherals. Players can take on these songs solo or in a group with local bandmates manning each instrument.

Rock Band 4‘s “U2 Essentials 01” pack includes the following tracks:

  • Sunday Bloody Sunday from U2’s 1983 album War
  • Pride (In The Name Of Love) from 1984’s The Unforgettable Fire
  • Where The Streets Have No Name from 1987’s The Joshua Tree
  • Desire from 1988’s Rattle and Hum
  • One from 1992’s Achtung Baby
  • Vertigo, the lead track on 2004’s How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
  • California (There Is No End To Love) from 2014’s Songs of Innocence
  • The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone), also off of Songs of Innocence

Featured tracks can be purchased individually or as an 8-pack priced at $13.50. All tracks are playable across all of Rock Band 4‘s featured gameplay modes, and all include Freestyle Guitar Solo gameplay segments where applicable.

Rock Band 4 marked the first series appearance for several popular bands and artists, including Van Halen with Panama and Cake with Short Skirt/Long Jacket. Many of these artists will receive additional DLC tracks in the future; Van Halen hosted its own exclusive track pack in November, offering up popular favorites like Hot for Teacher and Runnin’ with the Devil.

Track collecting and curation play a large role in the Rock Band experience. Players can import thousands of songs purchased from previous Rock Band games and play them in Rock Band 4, and a disc import option for Rock Band 3‘s tracklist was introduced in a recent update. Disc imports for Rock Band 2, Lego Rock Band, and other legacy series entries will be available starting in 2016.

Rock Band 4 is available now for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ outdraws its predecessor, ships 17M copies
red dead redemption 2 review 29874

Apparently everyone wants to be a cowboy, baby. It took Red Dead Redemption 2 a mere eight days to surpass the lifetime sales of the original game, which sold right around 15 million copies. Sales for Rockstar Games' universally praised outlaw simulator are booming, with more than 17 million copies shipped to stores, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive (via Variety).

We already knew Red Dead Redemption 2 was flying off shelves, of course. On launch weekend, RDR2 grossed $725 million -- an all time high for the entertainment industry. But the fact that Red Dead Redemption 2 has already outgunned its predecessor is quite astonishing. The original game was also one of the most highly rated titles of its era.
