Rock Band Just Got Up in Your Facebook

This may be another way to reinvigorate previous fans of the Rock Band series into picking up their plastic instrument of choice. Or it could be a marketing ploy to capitalize on potential sales for the upcoming Rock Band Blitz in a market nearly dominated by innovative indie games.

Either way, I’m on board. Not only am I a huge (say it like Donald Trump please) fan of Rock Band in general, but I’m eagerly anticipating the release of Rock Band Blitz and the return to Frequency, Amplitude, and Rock Band Unplugged gameplay.

Rock Band World is a social app for the Facebook populous enabling a new level of interaction between friends. You’ll need a copy of Rock Band 3 or Rock Band Blitz and the Rock Band World app on Facebook. The problem right now is that Rock Band Blitz isn’t available until August 28th on PSN. There isn’t much you can do in the app until then.

Here’s a quote from the app to better explain why you might want to make friends with Rock Band World:

Goals are a way to play Rock Band Blitz and Rock Band 3cooperatively with friends and the Rock Bandcommunity, earning badges for your profile and coins to use in Rock Band Blitz. Goals will be available when Rock Band Blitz comes out on August 28th on the PlayStation®Network and August 29th on Xbox LIVE® Arcade. Check back then to try this new feature!
