Harmonix has now confirmed that the first major update for Rock Band 4 is coming next month. This update will bring several new features to the title, like score challenge features, activity feed, in-game notifications of leaderboard events and more. Overall improvements to the title have also been made, like improved calibration, detailed player stats, more song results details and many bug fixes. This will be good news for fans of the franchise. So lets take a look at some of these improvements and new features.
All of the score challenge features have been designed to “leverage the competitive heart of the game.” Activity feed will let players check the main menu log of leaderboard events so they can quickly jump to a track and regain their dominance if someone has outscored them. What else is here? Well, a new song indicator will let you know in-game when you pass a friend’s score. Also, the results screen now gets a taunt system which lets players send friends they have outscored a random Taunt message, the message will be displayed in the recipient’s activity feed. Oh, it’s on now.
The December update also adds variable breakneck speed that lets players individually set breakneck speeds of their tracks up to 2.5x. Full combo recognition and indicator will keep track of perfect streaks and an in-song indicator will let you know if you have broken your streak. There’s a lot here to like if you play this title.
