Ubisoft today announced that Rocksmith will receive downloadable content which allows players to plug in and play with a bass guitar. The bass DLC is slated for release on Sept. 4 and will be available for $29.99. In addition, on Oct. 16 the standard edition of the game—available for $79.99—will ship with the bass content included on the disc and the Real Tone Cable, which is a unique ¼” to USB cable that allows you to plug in any guitar/bass into your game console.

The guitar bundle will also be available for $199.99 and includes the Epiphone Les Paul Jr guitar, along with the bass DLC and real tone cable. It will be ship for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Ubisoft announced that bass arrangements have been added to existing in-game tracks and previously released DLC tracks. You’ll also get the chance to hone your skills like 2-finger plucking, slapping, and popping with technique challenges, tutorial videos and mini-games. You can also play any 6-string guitar to emulate a 4-string bass.
