Activision and Freestyle Games (the developer behind DJ Hero which also needs a sequel) have announced Guitar Hero Live.
Instead of cartoon audiences and band members, there are real people which will react accordingly to your awesome shredding or terrible screeching. Now your view will be of the audience while you are up on stage rather than you and the band.
Guitar Hero Live won’t be backwards compatible, mainly due to the massive change in guitar layout which now has two sets of three buttons (black on top and white on bottom) which is designed to look more like the neck of the guitar rather than the rainbow road of the previous titles.
A new mode called GHTV brings in a more social aspect; it’s essentially a 24-hour playable live music video network which allows you to follow a continually updating collection of official music videos.
Guitar Hero Live is available for pre-order and will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One and “select” mobile devices later this year. For more information check out www.guitarhero.com.
