Rocksmith 2014 (Ubisoft) Ubisoft released a new trailer today for Rocksmith 2014 Edition, a popular teaching/rhythm game which actually enables players to learn how to play guitar.

During June’s Electronics Entertainment Expo, Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell gave a pretty cool demonstration of the game, which comes out in October on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Mac. Fans who pre-order the title will also receive The Smashing Pumpkins song Cherub Rock.

At my age, learning how to play the guitar may be an uphill climb, but in the new video, creative director Paul Cross gives a comprehensive breakdown on how players will actually learn how to channel their inner rock god. I’m pretty excited to actually plug Rocksmith 2014 Edition into my 360, even though my chances of mastering Jack Whites’ Sixteen Saltines are zero percent at best. That, however, won’t keep me from strumming.

Feel free to tell us what you think of the new Rocksmith 2014 trailer. To check out the songs that have been announced for the game (there are an estimated 50 songs for the title), check out the list at the bottom of the post.
