Harmonix have announced that Rock Band 4 will receive a synchronous online multiplayer mode.
The announcement – which came via the PlayStation Blog – confirms that the game’s most requested feature will arrive later this year. There are no details about which gameplay modes will be supported, other than a modified version of Quickplay. Also promised are further back-end enhancements to accommodate players with different DLC libraries.

It’s a positive piece of news for both the Rock Band community and for Harmonix, who last month failed to achieve their $1.5 million goal on Fig to bring Rock Band 4 to PC.
Harmonix have teased that big announcements will be coming at this year’s E3.
It has to be Led Zeppelin, surely?
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
