Activision announces all-new Guitar Hero game

15 Apr 2015

Activision has announced an all-new Guitar Hero game that will be out later this year.  The game is called "Guitar Hero Live" and is a new take on the beloved franchise. It will feature a first-person perspective with the crowd and even your own bandmates reacting to how you play.  If you perform badly in Guitar Hero Live, the crowd will boo. They will go wild if you manage to play decently. The venues range from small clubs to even large stadiums.  Some of the acts confirmed for Guitar Hero live includes: The Black Keys, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Gary Clark, Jr., Green Day, Ed Sheeran, The War on Drugs, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Pierce the Veil and more. 

"Guitar Hero is a franchise that so many people love. Figuring out how to bring it back with true breakthrough innovation has been years in the making, and a labour of love,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “Guitar Hero Live lets people rock real crowds with real reactions. Our goal was literally to give people stage fright. And with GHTV, we have created the world’s first playable music video network. All of it is playable on consoles, or mobile devices. Guitar Hero is back and better than ever". Guitar Hero Live will be out later this year for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and select mobile devices too.
