MTV Games and Harmonix have revealed that John Lennon’s full 10-track solo album Imagine will be one of the first available as DLC for Rock Band 3.
The album has unquestionably been picked to showcase the new keyboard peripheral and to continue Rock Band's association with The Beatles.
Clarifying the use of controllers in Rock Band 3 DLC Harmonix said: “All Rock Band 3 DLC will include five-button bass and guitar, drums, Pro drums, keys, Pro keys and harmonies, where applicable. Meaning if a song has a keyboard part or harmonies in it, the keyboard part and harmonies will be included in the DLC track. This includes both Pro Keys and Pro Drums. We have not yet announced any Pro Guitar or Pro Bass upgrades for Imagine. Also, you don’t have to have the keyboard to play the keyboard parts of any song for Rock Band 3. You can play the five-button key parts on your traditional five-button guitar controllers.”
Rock Band 3 is officially released in Australia this Thursday, October 28.
