Rock Band 4 will add 'Variable Breakneck Speed' option for first feature update
Rhythm games veterans have lamented Rock Band's lack of hyperspeed options, but Harmonix will officially add the feature with Rock Band 4's first major update, set to deploy in December.
Rock Band 4 isn't set to take the stage until October 6, but Harmonix is already looking ahead to the game's first major feature update. During a presentation at this year's TwitchCon, the developer outlined what's to come, including a long-awaited, fan-requested feature.
The first Rock Band 4 feature update will debut the "Variable Breakneck Speed" option. For rhythm game veterans, this is better known as Guitar Hero's old Hyperspeed cheat, which will allow users to adjust the note scrolling speed for their respective track highway. Other changes outlined on the Harmonix website include unspecified social and competitive features.
Rock Band 4 is set to hit on October 6 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but don't look for the first feature update to arrive until December 8. The update and its features will be free of charge.
