ESRB Hints At Rocksmith 2014 Rocking Out On Xbox One and PS4
Last year's ultra-realistic guitar game Rocksmith 2014 may be rocking its way to a new generation of consoles if the Entertainment Software Ratings Board is to be believed.
A listing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of Ubisoft's Rocksmith 2014 has appeared on the ratings website, signaling the approaching upgrade for the music game. The game is rated T for Teen, just as its predecessor, for "Mild Fantasy Violence" and "Mild Lyrics."
The fantasy violence rating comes from Rocksmith's many minigames, including "a cowboy shooting bandits with a pop gun, spaceships shooting lasers at each other, and players using a guitar weapon to shoot light blasts at zombies from a first-person perspective." The mild lyrics rating stems from a few songs getting a little suggestive with their subject matter, like "there's no mistaking who I'm taking to my bed with me tonight." Despite these minor warnings, the focus of the game is teaching players how to jam on the guitar, so there won't be anything lewd to worry about.
Ubisoft apparently has enough faith in their music game to bring it to the new generation of consoles, and if the game is as effective as advertised in teaching people how to play the guitar, then perhaps it will be a good idea. We don't have a release date for the game yet, nor do we have official confirmation from Ubisoft, but we'll report one as soon as it's made available.
