I think from what's happened over the year so far we will certainly get matchmaking and multiple instruments per console for online. Whether it'll come in the upcoming one or a later one this year, I don't know.Yeah when people complain about the lack of delisted songs coming back, I always direct them to your first point. But, I really think the whole matchmaking and multiple instruments per console thing is just like the online play debate before it was announced in April 2016 that it was coming to Rock Band Rivals. People were so mad about the fact that Online Play wasn't in the game at launch. And now we have it thanks to that. After online play launched this year, a lot of people got mad at the limitations. So, it's gotta be coming with the amounts of demand. I don't see them saying, no we're not doing matchmaking and multiple instruments per console for online.
- EU PS4 players thought they'd never get their entitlements back given virtually no visible progress in 2016 and here we are now with SIEE fully caught up to SIEA and both platforms are getting multiple fixes each week.
- Lots of people complained about not being able to past disc songs caused either by the exports expiring (RB1/RB2/LRB) or not being able to get what's needed to export (RB3) and a lot of rewind songs have been released this year.
- ION/ekit players on XB1 thought they'd never be able to use their kit on RB4 due to the mess regarding the severe lack of stock for PDP's adapter but restocks have happened both yesterday and today so it seems like there'll probably be a steady supply.
- Some people complained about the calibration exploits basically ruining Rivals mode and the leaderboards, those are being fixed in the latest update.
The main issue that I'm not sure will be fixed is the stuttering as that seems more like a hardware issue than a software one.3
And cue the disappointment from readers of the forums: Our Spotlights for the Weekly Challenge provided by FreshPrinceOfRB is all DLCs (Jesus of Suburbia, The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles, and Jesus Christ Pose).Lucky to have two of these songs, not buying the Marilyn Manson song that's for sure. I love Green Day, I was playing a lot of their songs last night. I don't think the community will react positively to that, that song is like 10+ minutes long. Jesus Christ pose is tough on all instruments. It's gonna be tough to full combo that on any instrument. Yeah, the community is going to crap all over this challenge. Can't wait to read the comments to this one.
@HMXOwl Are you going to provide a blog for eligible songs?2
When are we getting the rest of the next update news?
Right? The reward isn't togas, but I want togas.
Now I just want a toga
According to HMXJosh, in a reply on the Reddit post: It's not like Bronze would get a toga and Silver would get a windbreaker and Gold would get a crown and Platinum would get rollerskates. It's more like Bronze would get a plain toga, Silver would get a toga with a silver stripe, Gold would get a toga with a stripe and tassels, etc. (Making stuff up here, but you get the idea)
Did Harmonix say how soon is this update coming?Later. All the info that exists is in the blog. About as vague as you can get!! Thanks!1
I wasn't trying to be funny you know...
So, what do you guys think will be announced tomorrow? Free rivals songs, matchmaking, a big boost in character creator, animations, new game mode, etc. We do know that a fix to stuttering on the PS4 won't come in the next update, according to HMXJosh. Realistically, what do you think? I honestly couldn't believe that all of these things will be in the next update, but maybe all of these things will come in the next couple of updates. Also, did they tell us when the update will be out? This week, next week, etc.My money's on Character Creator because Josh said the update would be more meatier.1
