During the PAX East 2016 convention, Harmonix took to the crowd to announce that Rock Band 4 will be getting synchronous online multiplayer later this year. Harmonix community manager Criss Burki took to the PlayStation Blog to release a statement, but announced the news at the show. Below is an excerpt of what was said and what you can expect.

“Synchronous online multiplayer will be like Quickplay, modified to provide a fair and streamlined experience for console friends looking to play Rock Band 4 together online, We’ll be implementing enhancements on the back end to address issues for folks who don’t have the same DLC libraries and want a more fluid process for choosing songs together as a band (you all know that one person who would pick a song before you had the chance).”
