Green Day: Rock Band in 2010
Finally! Green Day is coming to Rock Band. This time it is a full Green Day-themed game title, not a downloadable content (DLC) pack.
As announced at last night’s Spike Video Game Awards, the punk trio is getting their music rendered into Green Day: Rock Band, the latest installment of Rock Band franchise developed by Harmonix Music Systems and published by EA. In 2010 it will hit the stores for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii.
“We’ve worked with the Rock Band team in the past year to enable our fans to play tracks from 21st Century Breakdown, and we’re excited to now be working on a game, spanning our entire career,” said Green Day vocalist Billy Joel Armstrong.
“We want people to fire this up, choose their favorite Green Day tracks and play along with us as ‘Rock Band’ avatars so they can feel what it’s like to perform on stage as Green Day,” Armstrong continues.
Green Day: Rock Band will be fully exportable for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, so gamers owning these next-gen consoles will be able to play Green Day’s tracks in Rock Band and Rock Band 2. Such option sadly does not occur for Nintendo Wii.
“This game will appeal to fans of all ages, including those who love their recent bestselling albums and those who’ve loved Green Day throughout their long, incredible career,” said Tom Whalley, CEO of the group’s label, Warner Bros. Records.
Though no official release date and track title confirmed yet, a Green Day downloadable content (DLC) will be available on December 15. Entitled Green Day Pack 02, it features 3 tracks from the 21st Century Breakdown album: Christian’s Inferno, Last of the American Girls and ¡Viva La Gloria!
