Ubisoft’s Rocksmith from the Road with the Vans Warped Tour

Ubisoft Partnered with World’s Premier String & Accessory Manufacturer Ernie Ball to Host Hands-On Demos at All Nationwide Vans Warped Tour Stops. More details after the jump.

Ubisoft partnered with Ernie Ball, Inc., the world’s premier string and accessory manufacturer to host hands-on demos of the upcoming video game developer’s breakthrough music video game Rocksmith™ at all 44 nationwide stops of the Vans Warped Tour, the summer’s hottest music festival.  Consumers were able to get their hands-on experience with the game before it hits store shelves in October 2011.

Concert attendees had the opportunity to rock out to Rocksmith, the first and only video game that allows players to plug in any real guitar into an Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 or Windows PC to play a sizeable library of songs from the latest hits to classic rock songs.  The game features songs from classic rock bands to current artists, including “House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals, “Next Girl” by The Black Keys and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones.  Rocksmith adapts to the player’s skill level from novices who have never picked up a guitar to the most experienced shredder.
