Ubisoft reveals guitar game 'Rocksmith'

Publisher says it isn't "a party game" like Guitar Hero

Activision might be out of the music game business for now, but Ubisoft is just getting warmed up.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Just Dance publisher has announced a new title called 'Rocksmith', which can be played using real electric guitars.

Ubisoft is said to be in negotiations with well-known guitar manufacturer Gibson to sign up for a game and guitar bundle that is reported to cost around $200.

Rocksmith will be ready for a September launch and feature 45 tracks including tunes from the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Nirvana and more.

Ubisoft's senior VP of marketing Tony Key distinguished Rocksmith from Guitar Hero by describing it as "a music experience" as opposed to "a party game".

"We will create a new generation of guitar players" he said.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said earlier this year that the Just Dance series can have a lifespan as long as Guitar Hero's and beyond.
