Harmonix has just revealed that Green Day: Rock Band will be available for all you American Idiots out there, June 8 on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. Up to 6 players (3 mics; 3 instruments) will progress through the career of the trio, unlocking collectible images (more than 100), and some 40 minutes of “rare and unreleased” footage from interviews, outtakes and performances along the way.
The game will also have the same vocal harmonizing feature that made The Beatles: Rock Band such a treat for group singers and comes loaded with 47 Green Day tracks, including “Brain Stew,” “Jaded”, “Hitchin’ a Ride,” “American Idiot,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”
If you’re looking to export these songs, fear not: all 47 tracks are fully exportable to a console hard drive and playable in Rock Band, Rock Band 2, and the recently announced Rock Band 3. The export fee is $9.99 via Xbox Live or PSN. The export features is not available for the Wii system. Additionally, if you’ve picked up the six Green Day tunes already available as DLC, you can play them in the new game with added harmonies, “unique” visuals and more “exclusive archival material.”
Green Day: Rock Band will be available as a standalone game for Xbox 360 and PS3 for $59.99, with Wii owners getting a slight price break at $49.99. A special edition Green Day: Rock Band Plus will also come to Xbox 360 and PS3 for $69.99 and includes fancy packaging, an “export” feature and the six previously released Green Day DLC tracks.
Note: If you pre-order from GameStop you get an export voucher which allows Xbox 360/PS3 owners can export all 47 tracks to your console hard drive for free.
