Harmonix is moving all music efforts to the long-running Fortnite and will continue to promote and expand the Fortnite festival. Anyone who wants to play with a guitar rather than a classic controller now has their first real chance to do so.
PDP, a company known for manufacturing peripherals for gaming, has now officially launched the PDP Riffmaster. This is a new wireless guitar controller that works with both the old Rock Band 4 and the current Fortnite Festival. In the future you will be able to play guitar in Fortnite mode without a normal controller; The initial signal for this should take place in the spring of 2024.
The first guitar controller to be compatible with Fortnite Festival was already hinted at last year – and now it has become more official. The Riffmaster relies on a very classic guitar controller design, but without missing out on some modern innovations.
There are various buttons on the front – arranged both above and below the fingerboard. There is also an extra thumb; There is also a 3.5mm audio input. According to PDP, the controller's battery life is said to last up to 36 hours on a single full charge. The guitar also has an unobtrusive design, which means it can be used equally by everyone.
Both the specific release date and price of the PDP Riffmaster are currently unclear. For now, music fans should be happy to get a guitar controller for the Fortnite festival.
Harmonix from Epic Games recently announced that they will no longer provide DLC content for Rock Band 4; In a way, an era has ended. Instead, the developer will fully focus on the further development of Fortnite Festival in the future.
