Why couldn't this have come a month later? I'm too busy grinding through the Guitar Hero Live achievements before they switch off the servers. I wasn't planning on playing Rock Band until December!

You're telling me there are more than 10 people out there that own RB4 but didn't get the Rivals expansion already?

Does the game come with a mountain of cocaine and a bottle of Jack? Guess that's the collector's edition.

I warned people not to buy it at launch and nobody listened. Anyone who couldn't see this update was the future of the game was just blind.

Beta Band 4 was disgusting at launch and they didn't see a penny of my money. I knew to wait for the full game. I still think 3 has more content.

Luckily i got it dirt cheap from a misprice error, otherwise i would never have bought it.

I would be playing it if I could find an actual set of instruments that I'm not being robbed to buy.

I thought this would eventually happen for me also, to find a full up RB4/Rival/Guitar bundle for dirt cheap, but instead, I think they just stopped making them.

I thought you meant the game and/or DLC.

According to the HarmonixMusic.com forums...

* Please note that this week’s DLC tracks will be available to Rock Band Rivals owners on Thursday, November 8th.

You only needed to wait a couple of days.

The announcement of new tracks typically occur on Tuesdays and then it is available for purchase/install on Thursday.

As for free Rock Band Rivals tracks (and any exports or other previously purchased tracks from Rock Band, Rock Band 2, Rock Band 3, Rock Band Blitz, LEGO Rock Band, or Green Day: Rock Band), you should be able to find them in your "Ready to install" section of the Rock Band 4 game tile. You'll need to press the Menu button cn_start, then choose "Manage game & add-ons" on the Rock Band 4 tile itself to access this area (see note below). From there, you'll be able to install all of your past purchases.

Note: You'll need the Rock Band 4 game disc to be inserted into the Xbox One (while on the dashboard or with the guide cn_guide open) or you can get to the Rock Band 4 game tile from My games & apps.

Hope that helps to clear up any confusion.


Edit: Now that it is Thursday, I was able to search for the store links:
"Thinking Emoji" - Barely March
"Love That Hurts" - PREACHERVAN
"Let's Just Dance" - Ships Have Sailed
Save Yourself" - tiLLie

I'm struggling to find this as well. I followed the links and I also tried to download the expansion on my home Xbox One console but it always prompts me to purchase it, not download it like many other free-play titles.

I'm playing a disc version of the game, is it possible that the Rivals expansion will just be there when I boot up the base game?
