Download your previously purchased Rock Band DLC for Rockband 4

Harmonix has announced, via their Rockband site, that you can now download previous bought tracks from PS3 and Xbox 360 for use in Rockband 4.

The DLC tracks and albums that you might have previously paid for on the last generation of consoles can be re-downloaded on to your current gen console, but only from the same manufacturer (so Xbox 360 to Xbox One or PS3 to PS4).

It’s a slightly convoluted process that Harmonix have detailed, but worth doing if you’ve invested in previous games and want to re-play the same tracks in the new game, due out on 6th October.  You can find the instructions below:

  8. Select the individual Add-On you want to download. There will be a monetary value on an individual Add-On if you did not previously purchase the product. If you purchased it previously, select “Install”.
