The Beatles are coming -- to "Rock Band."
Harmonix, which develops the popular video-game series, will release a version featuring Beatles music.
The game -- available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii -- will allow fans to pick up the guitar, bass, mic or drums and use the Beatles’ music through gameplay that replicates the Fab Four's rise to music royalty. It will be compatible with all "Rock Band" instrument controllers, as well as most "Guitar Hero" and other third-party peripherals and microphones.
The $249.99 limited-edition bundle, called "The Beatles: Rock Band," will include the game and:
A special Bass controller: a large-scale replica of the bass famously used by Sir Paul McCartney;
Beatles-inspired and Ludwig-branded "Rock Band 2" drums with classic pearl finish and vintage replica Beatles kick drum head;
Microphone and mic stand;
Additional "special content."
Fans who preorder the game will be eligible to join a special club to get breaking news and behind-the-scenes footage starting in May and leading up to the game's launch on Sept. 9.
