On September 28, 2015, an announcement from Harmonix, the maker of the Rock Band game, announced that U2 would be taking part in the next version of the game, “Rock Band 4” due to be released on October 6. The game was released on both the XBox and PS4 Video game systems.
Two songs were included in the initial release of the game, “I Will Follow” and “Cedarwood Road”. An additional six tracks were released in December of that year for download as the pack “U2 Essentials 01”. The other songs included at the time of release are from artists other than U2.
The game could be purchased at retail in a number of configurations, including the standalone game, bundled with a guitar, or bundled with a set of instruments.
The versions of the songs are the studio recordings we are most familiar with, although a drum count in and final drum beat are added to signify the start and the end of the track for the player. There is also some crowd noise mixed in at the start and the end of the track making it sound like a club environment, and as you play you can at times hear some crowd noise, ie when you are doing poorly.
