Oculus said in a blog post announcing the game:

While classic Rock Band simulates the note-for-note experience of a studio recording, Rock Band VR lets you feel like you’re actually performing in front of sold-out crowds. Alongside the creative freedom of a live show, you’ll get a deeper sense of presence as you interact with bandmates and shred on the stage.

This game lets you create your own execution of notes or with Rock Band’s “note highway,” the classic game mode allows you to rock out while the campaign mode offers an interactive story. Players with a competitive streak may also make it to the top of the leaderboards, Oculus added.

The Xbox One and the PS4 Guitar Controller bundle will set you back $70. It is worth noting that the PS4 version works with Oculus Rift on the Rock Band 4 for PC and PS4. Meanwhile, the Xbox One version is compatible with Oculus Rift on the PC and Xbox One versions of the Rock Band 4.
