Win a PC During Audrey’s Rocksmith 2014 Livestream!

The best part of making games is seeing how people play them once they’re released. With Rocksmith 2014, we’ve seen lots of people learn to play guitar like they always dreamed they would, and that’s honestly thrilling for the development team. But no Rocksmith player has impressed us more than Audrey Shida.

Rocksmith 2014

Audrey – currently 11 years old – lives in rural Japan with her younger sister Kate. She started playing the original Rocksmith and never stopped; she’s entirely self-taught through the game. She’s Audrey123talks on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, and her videos have landed her chat show appearances and Google commercials in her homeland, not to mention a new guitar from Epiphone for her birthday. And if you’ve never seen her play Rocksmith… well, here’s what she can do:

So when we heard that Audrey would be visiting San Francisco with her family this summer, we asked if she’d be willing to play with the Rocksmith dev team on a special livestream – and she agreed! That stream will take place Tuesday August 4, at 3pm PT/6pm ET/10pm GMT at the dedicated Rocksmith Twitch channel,

Audrey will be playing some of her favorite songs with the Rocksmith 2014 notetrackers. Better still, we’re also giving away some special prizes for the occasion:

Steam DLC codes for Audrey’s favorite songs – watch her play it live, then see how you do!

• A special Ernie Ball prize pack – keeping these contents a secret but it’s not the stuff we usually give away!

• An Orange OPC complete with Steam codes for Rocksmith & Rocksmith 2014 (and a generous helping of DLC too). If you’re not familiar with the OPC, it’s both a small-form-factor PC and a fully fledged Orange guitar amplifier in one unit – really, the ultimate machine for Rocksmith players!

Rocksmith 2014

All those prizes will be awarded live on the show. You must be present to enter and you must be following our Twitch channel to win.

We are thrilled that Audrey and Kate are coming to see us in San Francisco and we can’t wait to meet them in person. Join us if you can!
