Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Wii

Queen, composed of Brian May, John Deacon, Roger Taylor and quintessential frontman Freddie Mercury, formed in England in 1970. The group has released 15 studio albums and was known for their epic live concerts. Queen was featured in LEGO® Rock Band and as DLC for Rock Band™ 2. Their quintessential rock anthem, “Bohemian Rhapsody” was featured on the on-disc soundtrack for Rock Band 3, and beginning next week, fans can download even more Queen for Rock Band gameplay. Queen released The Singles Collection: Volume 4 on Oct. 19, featuring a box set of remastered originals spanning 1989 to 1999. Find more information and order your copy here.

Beginning next week, fans will be able to play their Queen songs in a variety of ways on Rock Band. Fans who purchased Queen DLC previously will have the option to purchase Pro Guitar/Pro Bass additions for those tracks, as well as the option to purchase Rock Band 3 versions that include harmonies and keys where applicable. Additionally, five songs new to Rock Band will also be available as Rock Band 3 downloadable content, featuring Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrades as well.
