Hope You Don’t Have Stage Fright… Guitar Hero is Back!

Guitar Hero is back with an all-new experience entitled “Guitar Hero: Live” this Autumn!

Launching for $99.99 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and Wii U, GH Live is no reskin of previous titles…

As the name would suggest, this brand new Guitar Hero experience puts players in front of a live, dynamic crowd which will react to your playing success (or failure), all from a first-person perspective!

That’s not all… The controller has been modified too!


Ditching the five multicolored fret buttons and going for something a little closer to the real deal, there are now just 3 “frets” worth of buttons, but vertically split into two different buttons, giving players a total of six buttons to play with. One row is colored the “black” row. the other is the “white” row. Prompts on-screen are color-coded and laid out to resemble the horizontal layout as in previous games.

Artists confirmed to feature within the game include Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, Pierce The Veil, Green Day and Ed Sheeran.

Watch the reveal trailer for a taste of what to expect!

With a new Rock Band AND a new Guitar Hero, it looks like the age of music games is back! What are you most looking forward to?
