Def Leppard 6-Pack hitting Rock Band DLC next week

by: Dan -
Another week, another great debut and release for Rock Band DLC.  Starting on August 9th, we will finally be getting our shot at six Def Leppard tracks (2 Live) to be able to download and jam to.  The band has a couple songs on-disc within the franchise, but this marks the debut of DLC for the group.  Of the six tracks, five originated in the 80’s, while the sixth (‘Undefeated’) is off the group’s recent album Mirrorball: Live & More.  The two live tracks are also from this album even though they originally were from the 80’s as well.  One other treat is that all six songs will be compatible with Pro Guitar/Bass right out of the gate, the first time a complete DLC week has had that availability.

Pricing will be $9.99/800 MS Pts/1000 Wii Pts for “Def Leppard Pack 01”, with each song costing $1.99/160 MS PTs/200 Wii Pts per song.  The Guitar/Bass Pro upgrade will be $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts.  Here is the complete list:

Def Leppard – “Animal (Live)”X
Def Leppard – “Bringin’ On the Heartbreak”X
Def Leppard – “Photograph”X
Def Leppard – “Pour Some Sugar on Me (Live)”X
Def Leppard – “Rock of Ages”X
Def Leppard – “Undefeated”X
Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
