Rocksmith+ launches on PC

Rocksmith+ launches today

Ubisoft converted its popular Rocksmith franchise into a paid subscription service.

For over the past decade, Rocksmith has been the premier music-learning software, teaching players how to play acoustic, bass, and electric guitar with their favorite songs. Now Ubisoft has brought the franchise back with a new subscription-based service.

According to Ubisoft, Rocksmith has helped more than five million people learn how to play the guitar. The new subscription hopes to build upon that success story. The service includes a library of more than 5,000 songs from labels like Sony Music, Universal and more.

“Building upon 10 years of successful music teaching experience from a team of musicians, music educators and video game developers at Ubisoft San Francisco, Rocksmith+ provides a fun and personalized experience for players of all skill levels,” the company says.


Players can expect music from countries all around the world across a variety of genres such as rock ‘n roll, metal, pop, Latin, and hip-hop. Ubisoft says that new songs are added each week from artists such as The Clash, Juan Gabriel, Alicia Keys, Santana, and more.

For returning players, Rocksmith+ has a loyalty offer for Rocksmith 2014 owners and closed beta participants who purchase a Rocksmith+ subscription for three or twelve months. Those players will get bonus time in their first billing cycle: one month free for those who purchase a 3-month plan and three months free for those who purchase a 12-month plan.

Rocksmith+ is available exclusively through the Ubisoft Store. A one-month subscription costs $14.99. A three-month subscription is $39.99 and a 12-month annual subscription is $99.99.
