What do I get for buying Rock Band Rivals?

When you buy Rock Band Rivals, you get cool new game modes, synchronous online multiplayer, and future updates!

Rivals Mode


JANUARY UPDATE: Synchronous Online Multiplayer! If you’re tired of rocking in your living room, come January you can play with friends all over the world! Jump into sessions and invite your friends, then rock out to your heart’s content!

Future updates: This isn’t all! Purchasing Rock Band Rivals guarantees you new features coming in updates through 2017! Stay tuned for details.


If you choose NOT to buy Rock Band Rivals, you will still receive ‘Quality of Life’ updates, like the Music Library Enhancements detailed here that improve the playing and navigating experience, along with any future bug fixes. You will not receive large feature updates like Synchronous Online Multiplayer.
