Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. have today began a Fig crowdfunding campaign looking to raise a cool $1.5m to bring Rock Band 4 to PC players. During the next 35 days, fans of the game will get the chance to own a piece of Rock Band history by heading HERE to support the project, making their Rock Band dreams come true. Of all the investor rewards available for the campaign the real standout is the highest reward which stands at $25,000, allowing investors to have their very own song feature in Rock Band 4, which will come as free DLC, meaning everyone can play your, yes your track!.
With a Fall 2016 release targeted for STEAM, the PC version will truly democratize video game revenue in two ways. First, supporters are given the option of backing the game for traditional rewards or becoming an investor in the project through Fig to receive a percentage of game revenues. Secondly, Rock Band 4 for PC will provide players with the tools to author their own songs, bringing user-generated content back to Rock Band! Players can submit their own songs to the Rock Band Network via Steam Workshop, making them playable by everyone in the Rock Band 4 community on Steam.
Rock Band 4 on consoles is an expanding platform receiving new updates every month, and the PC version of Rock Band 4 will launch with the same features and content updates from the console game. After release, it will continue to be updated alongside the console versions. Highlighted features include:
- World Tour Campaign Mode
- Freestyle Guitar Solos
- 65 songs included “out of the box,” plus up to 33 additional songs for backers on Fig
- 1,700+ additional playable songs available as downloadable content
- Wireless guitar, drum kit and next-generation microphone support
Harmonix sees Fig as the logical evolution of crowdfunding. With options to become a backer or investor, Harmonix and Fig are delighted to offer the opportunity to participate in the creation and potential success of Rock Band 4 on PC.
Rock Band 4 is currently available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
