Rock Band Blitz is coming from developer Harmonix. The new title will be coming for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a digital download offering.
Rock Band Blitz will allow the import of existing Rock Band library tracks that you already own. It will come with 25 songs that will be able to be imported into Rock Band 3.
Blitz will ditch the music peripherals and instead use the gaming controller, with gameplay that is somewhat similar to Rock band Unplugged. There is an exception in that you will now have to use the controller to hit those notes and switch between instruments to run up your score.
Other than confirming that it will be coming for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as a digital download-only offering, Harmonix did not officially confirm a release date. Sources tell us that it is slated to arrive later this year, but that’s all we know.
