Archer's Coming to Rock Band
Rock Band 4

Archer, the goofy 2D-animated show about a private investigator and spy with a chip on his shoulder named Sterling Archer, is coming to Rock Band 4? Oh, also, some song about dangerous highways or something is coming along for the ride too.

Kenny Loggins’ "Highway to the Danger Zone" is coming to Rock Band 4, and Top Gun isn’t the only pop culture phenomenon associated with the song. Archer’s character is also tied closely to the song, and Harmonix was able to cut a deal with FXX and Floyd County Productions to bring the character to life in Rock Band-form.

The cool thing is, since Archer’s style is very cartoonish, Harmonix built cel-shading into the Rock Band 4 engine just for this new cameo. He stands out like a sore thumb against the normal, pseudo-realistic style, but it works. 

Alongside Archer, the March 16 update to Rock Band 4 will include other types of content, including new punk rock outfit options and a bass guitar modeled after the Normandy, Mass Effect’s signature space vessel.
