Orange has tied up a deal with Ubisoft to feature in the new edition of guitar-based video game Rocksmith.
The new Rocksmith 2014 Edition, released in October 2013, has been redesigned and comes with a wide array of in-game gear, which includes a number of Orange amps including the Rockerverb, Tiny Terror, AD and OR series amps plus speakers such as the PPC412 and OBC810.
These can be used to play over 50 new songs, in a range of new modes, using a completely redesigned interface and includes classic amp modelling and tracks by Orange artists including Rush, Deftones and Mastodon. Plus for the first time ever you can jam with a virtual band that dynamically reacts to what is played by the guitarist through the chosen amps.
The multi-award winning Orange Personal Computer (Orange OPC), upgraded earlier this year to the 3rd Gen Intel i7 processor, is the ideal tool to get the most out of the new Rocksmith 2014. It is the only computer in the world where you can plug your guitar lead straight from you guitar into the computer game. In addition, the Orange OPC has a built in amp and speaker and allows you to easily record and monitor your progress as you learn to play guitar.
"Orange Amplification is renowned for its innovative approach," commented Cliff Cooper, CEO, "so partnering with Ubisoft and their ground-breaking game Rocksmith 2014 continues our strategy of working with like minded companies. Hopefully a whole new audience will come to love Orange Amps and the OPC".
