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.
