AC/DC Version of Rock Band to Get Exclusive Achievements, Trophies


Some interesting Rock Band 2 news. Get a free copy of the game here.

Although it could be purchased for under $5, Sneak King still had Achievements, so why shouldn't the upcoming standalone expansion for Rock Band? Xbox 360 Fanboy is reporting that upon being asked if the game was going to include the meta content, a Harmonix developer going by the handle HMXHenry replied "Yes! There will be unique Achievements and Trophies for the AC/DC Track Pack, as well that are song specific."

Henry didn't indicate whether or not the additional Gamerscore possible would total 200 or 1,000 points, but we're tentatively guessing the latter since that's how much other similarly priced titles -- such as Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise -- include.

As for the song-specific Achievements, I hope their titles are as clever and entertaining as the STD-inspired lyrics of "The Jack," which just so happens to be one of the songs on the disc. Feel free to propose a few names in the comments section below.

This is so cool, I was already really stoked about the expansion pack but this makes it even more fun! I can't wait to "play" my favorite AC/DC songs. Has anyone seen their display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I work on behalf of Positively Cleveland, and we're getting the word out about the Rock Hall. I highly encourage all music fans (and especially AC/DC fans) to check it out. You can start on our website: http://www.positivelycleveland.com/visiting/things_to_do/cleveland_rocks/rock_hall. Also go to http://www.positivelycleveland.com/intheknow to enter to win passes to the Rock Hall AND a private tour from the curator!

Hope I haven't overstepped my bounds by leaving this comment; just working to let people know about what Cleveland has to offer! If you have any questions or concerns feel free to Email me :)
