Get the Flash Player to see this player. Rock Revolution comes equipped with two complete career modes for drums and guitar/bass, as well as five difficulty levels. The game features gameplay conventions similar to those seen in other rhythm titles, including an overdrive mode which increases the player's score multiplier when engaged. In addition to local and online multiplayer, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Rock Revolution also feature Jam Mode, aimed at allowing players to create their own songs with the guitar and drum peripherals. Though the mode was not directly demonstrated, Jam Mode is said to allow players to record songs on up to eight separate tracks. The Wii and DS versions do not have online multiplayer, but do support local battles and cooperative play. The Wii edition also packs Jam Mode. A complete list of songs was not disclosed by Konami, but songs spotted during the demonstration included covers of "Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones, "Chop Suey" by System of a Down, "Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden, "Cum On Feel the Noize" by Quiet Riot, and Wolfmother's "Joker and the Thief." When questioned about cross-compatibility with between Rock Revolution's peripherals and other rhythm titles, Konami senior brand manager Lauren Faccidomo said that the company was hopeful.
"We're trying to work [cross-compatibility] out," said Faccidomo. "The drum peripheral was specifically made for this game—if it works with others, that's great too." A price point was not disclosed by Konami for any versions of Rock Revolution. However, it's presumable that the Wii and DS versions, which require no additional peripherals, will clock in at standard retail prices of around $50 and $30, respectively. Rock Revolution is currently scheduled for an October release date on all platforms.
