Several new features were announcing including synchronous online multiplayer which has been a feature players have been waiting for. The online multiplayer will be available this holiday season but an exact date was not released.

Additionally, Harmonix revealed that the game will be receiving it’s first expansion this fall. The expansion will include new features like music library improvements, ability to filter by genre and rate songs. More information about the expansion will be revealed at E3.
