Unlike previous iterations of Rock Band Blitz does not use special instrument controllers instead allowing the player to use a regular console controller to match notes in a song using gameplay mechanics similar to Harmonix’ previous titles of Frequency Amplitude and Rock Band Unplugged. In addition to 25 songs that will ship with the game the title is capable of using any songs the player has downloaded or exported for Rock Band 3. Rock Band Blitz is a note-matching rhythm game fashioned similarly to Harmonix’ previous titles Frequency Amplitude and Rock Band Unplugged. The game presents up to five instrument lanes to the player corresponding to lead guitar bass guitar drums vocals and keyboard that run through the streets of the fictional ‘Rock City’ if a song does not include tracks for one or more of these instruments they are not shown on the field. Each lane consists of a number of markers on the two sides of the lane representing the notes played by that instrument in the song. Unlike other Rock Band games there is only a single difficulty level.
