Harmonix Gives A Rough Date On When You Import Tracks Into Rock Band 4

Good news Rock Band 4 players: Harmonix has announced a release date on when you can finally import songs to their latest rhythm game. The bad news is that it comes with a few catches and caveats, so keep that in mind before attempting to do it.

Harmonix is aiming right now to let players transfer their songs from Rock Band 3 in time for the December 8th update, which means if everything goes according to plan, you should be able to rock out to some of Rock Band 3’s biggest songs by the end of the year. In order to download the songs, you need to have played Rock Band 3 on the PSN or Xbox Live account that you’re currently using to play Rock Band 4 (meaning you have to transferred that account from your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One respectively), with a one time purchase of $15.99 for the platform of your choice. Unfortunately, if you played Rock Band 3 on a PlayStation 3 and own an Xbox One or vice versa, you will not be able to transfer the songs over, so keep that in mind.

In addition, though Harmonix will eventually let players import songs from Rock Band 1 & 2 (you can only import Rock Band 3’s songs), there are no plans to export those directly from those games into Rock Band 4, meaning that if you played and exported songs from Rock Band 1 into 2 but skipped 3 or didn’t bother transferring those songs into the third game, those songs are permanently stuck on the last gen consoles. Oh yeah, and if you’re thinking of picking up these games (plus the spin offs like Rock Band Green Day) to transfer them, it’s too late, as the website used to add them was taken offline years ago, and on October 30th, you’ll no longer be able to buy a copy of the game afterwards

It’s a lot of info to remember about this, and Harmonix has a lot of info over on their blog that you can check out. Rock Band 4 is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
