In line with the old school movies coming back to the big screen are old games making a comeback for present gamers to enjoy with the current generation of consoles.
In a recent report by Rolling Stone , included in that list is “Guitar Hero Live,” which will be having a comeback in the gaming world with the virtual band and instruments that has been very popular in the past years.
Creative director Jamie Jackson revealed what fans should expect from the game after confirming the inclusion of songs from System Of A Down, The Killers, Black Keys, Rage Against The Machine, among others.
“This is something we gave a load of thought to,” Jackson said.
“Guitar Hero – by its name alone – has always been associated with classic rock tracks.
And we know fans really love that type of music.
So we wanted to make sure those fans weren’t disappointed.” However, newer tracks are also expected in the game as new songs from Skrillex, The Lumineers, among others should be expected to be played in “Guitar Hero Live” after the song list has been revealed.
“But it’s been 10 years since the first Guitar Hero game came out,” he continued.
“When you think of it like that, and think about how much the musical landscape has changed since then – that’s where we’ve been able to explore some new types of musical style as well.
Guitar music is broader than it’s ever been – so we’re reflecting that in the range of music on offer.” In addition to that, jumping in the new technology of online gaming in the latest consoles, an online feature called “Guitar Hero TV” is expected from the game.
Gamers could now switch channels to play along different songs flashed in the TV.
“The great thing about GHTV mode, which is the world’s first playable music video network, is it gives us even more scope to broaden the songs on offer,” Jackson added.
“There are going to be Rock channels, so if that’s your bag you can spend hours competing with people to your favorite tracks.
But if you fancy mixing it up, or want to play something else than you can just flick channels and find something else to play.” The full song list for the upcoming “Guitar Hero Live” could be seen in this link .
Release date of the game is expected before the year ends.
