RB3: Bon Jovi 12-Pack DLC Coming Nov 9

With a new Greatest Hits album on the way, Harmonix announced a huge Bon Jovi DLC 12-pack coming to Rock Band 3 on Tuesday, November 9, with a few twists.

The pack will contain three songs that have already appeared in previous Rock Band games: “Wanted Dead or Alive” (RB1), “Livin’ On A Prayer” (RB2) and “You Give Love a Bad Name” (Lego Rock Band). Since the original versions didn’t include support for harmonies, keyboards or Pro drums, you’ll need to re-buy these new Rock Band 3 versions for $2 each if you’re interested in those specific features.

However, if you’re one of the 17 people currently playing Pro Guitar or Pro Bass, you don’t necessarily need to buy the new base tracks — you can simply buy the Pro add-on tracks, which will work with the older versions of those three songs. Interestingly, out of the 12 songs, only 4 will have Pro guitar/bass as an option: the three above and “Runaway.”

The pack will run for 1600 MS points ($20) for the full 12-pack, or 160 points ($2) per song and  80 points ($1) for the Pro add-on tracks. Here’s the entire list:

  • Bad Medicine
  • Blaze of Glory
  • Have a Nice Day
  • I’ll Be There For You
  • It’s My Life
  • Lay Your Hands On Me
  • Livin’ on a Prayer (RB3 version) *
  • Runaway *
  • Wanted Dead or Alive (RB3 version) *
  • We Weren’t Born to Follow
  • Who Says You Can’t Go Home
  • You Give Love a Bad Name (RB3 version) *

(* = denotes Pro guitar/bass tracks available)

Obligatory Song Editorializing™: “We Weren’t Born to Follow” instead of “Born to Be My Baby” or “Keep the Faith”? I guess 9 out of 12 is pretty good.
