John Lennon DLC To Be Among Rock Band 3's First

By DavieMarshall, 9 years ago
Rock Band 3 is only just out of the starting blocks, and already announcements for DLC intentions are being made. Waste no time eh?

It has been revealed today that John Lennon's album Imagine will be among the first downloadable albums offered to gamers in the Rock Band store. Paul DeGooyer, (Senior VP of electronic games, music and programming for MTV Networks) reasoned why Imagine was chosen to lead the way for album DLC:

The songs on John Lennon's Imagine run the gamut from beautiful piano-driven ballads like ‘Jealous Guy’ to all-out guitar rockers like ‘Gimme Some Truth’. It's an incredible musical statement, and a real workout on keyboard, guitar and vocals in Rock Band 3. We're very excited to confirm it as one of the first downloads for our new game, and to help our fans celebrate John's 70th birthday with its release.
The songs from this album will join the catalogue of around two thousand songs already available to players, with further contributions planned from The Doors, Bon Jovi and Billy Joel to accompany Lennon.

Rock Band 3 is live today in the US, but Europeans have to wait a few more days until October 29th.
