As if all four new Guitar Heroes weren’t enough, now Rock Band is looking to keep pace with the newest project Pearl Jam Live Rock Band. The Escapist reports that Pearl Jam is working with video game developer Harmonix, MTV Games and online music service Rhapsody to produce a game that features live concert tracks chosen by fans themselves.
You can go to the Pearl Jam Website, and vote on the tracks that you want included in the game. With a Rhapsody subscription, clicking on a song pulls up a playlist “widget” with multiple live versions of that song. The live versions that get the most plays will then “be in consideration to make the final set list for the game.”
There are quite a few tracks to choose from and, for each, there are hundreds of live versions. The game is more likely to follow in the footsteps of AC/DC Live Rock Band Track Pack than the Rock Band: Beatles game, so don’t expect to see any custom guitars or peripherals. If you’re a fan, be attentive when listening on Pearl Jam’s web site, because the tracks that play by default could be more heavily weighted for final “consideration” for the game.
Here’s the full tracklist and remember that each song has dozens of live versions on the site:
Brain of J
Do the Evolution
Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town
Given to Fly
I Am Mine
I Got ID
Love Boat Captain
Man of the Hour
Marker in the Sand
Spin the Black Circle
State of Love and Trust
World Wide Suicide
Are you excited for the new title?
