The lights are on
Rock Band VR is just a week away, and Harmonix has just revealed final batch of songs which will be present at launch.
The virtual reality rock and roll simulator will contain 60 songs on day one, and the company plans to support the rhythm game with post-launch DLC; Six songs by Aerosmith (including "Ragdoll" and "Janie's Got a Gun") will be available from the Oculus Store for $2.99 each.
Finally, while we've already detailed how Rock Band VR shakes up the traditional Rock Band formula with its performance-based scoring, old-school fans of the franchise will be pleased to learn that the original five-button guitar gameplay is still an important part of the game. Classic Mode is the Rock Band we all know and love, but with an extra touch of virtual reality immersion thanks to the Oculus headset.
Rock Band VR comes out exclusively for Oculus Rift on March 23. For more, check out our coverage of the narrative-based campaign mode.

Don't have VR, but the setlist looks OK I guess. Might want to play a GH or RB now...
I'm excited to see more experiences coming to VR. I had to sell my Vive but loved what I got to play. This is something I'd love to demo if possible!
And here I was thinking $1.99 per DLC song was a bit much at times. Still, the base setlist isn't half bad, even if quite a lot of it isn't new to the game.
oh wa ah ah ah
Other than VR
