As part of a new promotion, Rock Band 4 owners will be able to equip their faux rockers with the Vault 111 suit that's currently featured in Fallout 4.
Given the massive success of Fallout 4 thus far, other developers are hoping to build off of momentum for the game leading into the holiday season. That's why it's not all that surprising to hear that Rock Band 4 is set to offer fans on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 the opportunity to deck out their rock-savvy avatars in that all too familiar garb from Vault 111.
According to an official press release, the new gear will be making its way to Rock Band 4 via an update on December 8, 2015. After those that own the peripheral-heavy, music game have committed some of their precious time to installing the update, they'll then immediately be able to download and access the Fallout 4 attire for free – which is a nice bonus for dedicated fans of the post-apocalyptic RPG.
As one would expect from any company that managed to secure some sort of Fallout representation within its game, Harmonix CEO Steve Janiak is understandably excited by what this means from both a business and fan perspective.
“Rock Band’s character creator has always provided our players a way to live out their rock and roll fantasies, and we’re excited Rock Band 4 allows us to expand those fantastic possibilities by adding new assets to it, highlighted by the Vault 111 Suit. I’ve been a Fallout fan since the beginning. Playing some of the amazing songs in our Rock Band catalog with a band of Vault dwellers is something we think you’ll find is crazy fun.”
Harmonix isn't the first outside developer to take advantage of the hype surrounding the blockbuster game, as is evident by a similar promotion that occurred within Forza Motorsport 6. In that deal, a free Fallout 4-themed vehicle was made available – much to the delight of hopeful wasteland wanderers. Of course, this may not be the end of these cross-promotional materials either, but those hoping to cash-in on the Fallout 4 hype train are going to have to make any potential partnerships known sooner rather than later.
What do you think of the Rock Band 4/Fallout 4 crossover content? Will you be putting together a band of vault dwellers or will you stick to attire that's a little more rock appropriate? Get at us in the comments.
