Four new tracks are coming for Rock Band DLC and they include two singles by The Police and one each from OK Go and War. The headliner will be full Pro Mode version of “Every Breath You Take” by the Police which I would imagine will garner a few downloads. However, “So Lonely”, “Spill the Wine” and “Shooting the Moon” should have quite a few fans too. “Shooting the Moon” was featured on “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” soundtrack. Pricing will be a straight $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts per song and $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade for “Every Breath You Take.”
  • OK Go – “Shooting the Moon”
  • The Police – “So Lonely”
  • The Police – “Every Breath You Take” X
  • War – “Spill the Wine”

Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
