The song title(s) is (are) not yet known but The Cranberries are on the list of the artists appearing in the videogame “Rock Band 4” for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo and others.

For those who have no idea what this game is all about, it allows up to four players to simulate the performance of popular rock songs by playing with controllers modeled after musical instruments. Players can play the lead guitar, bass guitar and drums parts to songs with instrument controllers as well as sing through a USB microphone.

Here is the list of the artists being part of the next March DLC(*) as announced by developer Harmonix:

  • 5 Seconds of Summer
  • Carrie Underwood
  • The Cranberries
  • Fall Out Boy
  • Luke Bryan
  • Neon Trees
  • One Direction
  • Sam Hunt

If there is only one song of The Cranberries in Rock Band 4 it will surely be “Zombie”.
If more than one so guess the songs… Any idea?

According to Bastián a longtime gamer and Cranberries fan (see his message below) the band already appeared in the video games “Rockband Blitz” (Linger) and “Singstar” (Linger, Zombie, Stars).
“Zombie” might be in “Rocksmith” as well.

(*) DLC is a sort of downloadable update, a not-free update, you have to pay more money to play those artists as they are not part of the main collection (Rock Band 4 was released in October 2015).

UPDATE MAR.14

Finally it is 3 new tracks from The Cranberries available tomorrow:
Dreams
Ode To My Family
Zombie
The tracklist was just announced today on the Facebook page of Rock Band 4.
So it makes a total of 4 Cranberries songs as Linger was already available as DLC before.

    This isn’t really the first time. I’m a longtime gamer and Cranberries fan and I can already play Linger in Rockband Blitz and sing Linger, Zombie and Stars in Singstar. I think Zombie is in Rocksmith as well. I don’t think they’ve ever been part of the main collection of songs, you have to pay more money to play them (a.k.a. DLC)
    PS: I’d love to play Still Can’t although that’s not gonna happen.

      OK, not very familiar with gaming sorry, will update this!
      Thanks for the info

      It’s also worth noticing that the songs released so far for the game have been packs of usually 3 to 5 songs per artist so who knows, maybe Zombie won’t be the only one we see.

    Oh great news Bastian. 3 to 5 songs sounds great!
    I hope there will be Zombie for sure plus Salvation, Promises and Dreams (seems the minimum for a “rock” game).
    Please no ballad like Linger or Ode, “Rock Band” is for rocking!!!!!!!!
