Rock Band 4 now lets you import your favourite songs from Rock Band 3

All those songs you loved from Rock Band 3 are now available in Rock Band 4, as long as you’re playing on the same console network. That means an extra 83 tracks have been added to your library, and all you need to do is download them!

The game will look up your console network ID (that is, Xbox Live or PlayStation Network), to verify whether you owned RB3. If it all checks out, you’re laughing. If not, but you believe you should get the songs, Harmonix customer support should help you out.

Make sure you’re connected to the internet and logged in with a console profile that owns both Rock Band 3 and Rock Band 4, and follow these instructions to re-gain access to your jams.

Xbox One

  1. Start Rock Band 4.
  2. Navigate to “Get More Songs”.
  3. Scroll down to the new tab, “Exports”.
  4. Select “Rock Band 3”.
  5. Select “RB3 Disc Export Pack”.
  6. If you have been verified, you will be taken through to a first-party purchase screen to complete the Rock Band 3 export.
  7. Once you have purchased the export pack, you should see a confirmation screen that you have successfully purchased the Rock Band 3 export pack. You’ll now be able to download the export just like you would for any other piece of content.
  8. Once complete, navigate to your song library. The exported Rock Band 3 tracks should be available in your song library to play! Be sure to restart Rock Band 4 if you do not see your recently downloaded tracks in-game immediately.

From here, you will be able to download each individual single from the pack of 83 tracks. Press the white arrow located next to each track to begin the download process.
  8. Once complete, navigate to your song library. The exported Rock Band 3 tracks should be available in your song library to play! Be sure to restart Rock Band 4 if you do not see your recently downloaded tracks in-game immediately.
  9. You can always navigate to the “Add-Ons” section of Rock Band 4 in the Main Menu to download any individual tracks you did not initially download from the purchase completion screen.

The update is available now around the world thanks to the latest PSN update (it’s been available in North America and on Xbox One for a week or so). Harmonix has also said that exporting earlier game libraries is “a priority”, so you may still be able to play the classics on your new hardware.
