Archer‘s eighth season, the noir-tinged Archer: Dreamland, begins its big sleep on FXX on April 5th. But first, Harmonix is bringing the character to Rock Band 4 as part of the March Update.
Available to download now, Archer wouldn’t be Archer without getting the chance to belt out Kenny Loggins’s “Danger Zone.” Thankfully, Harmonix will also add the Top Gun anthem to the Rock Band 4 Music Store (priced at $1.99) today for the PS4 and Xbox One:
Bringing Archer into the Rock Band world presented a unique challenge for the art team. The Archer TV show is 2D animation with a cel-shaded style – completely different from the signature look of Rock Band. The team wanted to stay true to the Archer Style, so we created a custom cel-shader in Rock Band just for this character. The end result is an Archer that looks like he was pulled straight from TV and dropped on stage.
In another bit of cross-promotion, Harmonix also revealed (via Twitter) that a series of Mass Effect: Andromeda-themed items are now available to purchase from the Rock Shop. There’s Pathfinder Armor, guitars shaped like the Normandy and the Tempest, and more. Mass Effect: Andromeda will be released on March 21.
