Brutal Mode Offers Increased Challenge

Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. has announced that a new mode is being released for Rock Band 4.

The new gameplay challenge, which had been designed for Expert players, is called Brutal Mode and will be available in its own area, off the Main Menu. Harmonix claims Brutal Mode will put even the most hardcore players’ skills to the test.

Available in solo or multiplayer, Brutal Mode modifies the note track to react to how well you are playing. The better you play, the harder it gets. Players who master this mode are rewarded with a new Star threshold beyond Gold: the Crimson Star.

Rock Band 4 is available for PS4 and Xbox One. The new Brutal Mode is available to download now.
