Today Activison officially announced the next edition to its Guitar Hero franchise- Guitar Hero World Tour. This includes some of the other things we mentioned in the previous posts (like drums, mic, ability to make your own songs), but also adds some things we didn’t know, like a NEW guitar–shown below with a link to a trailer of the game in action– and a Battle of the Bands mode where 8 people can play against each other. It also includes songs from Van Halen, Linkin Park, The Eagles, Sublime as well as from many more different artists. Additionally, the game will offer much more downloadable music than any of the other Guitar Hero games. Players also will be able to fully customize everything, from their characters’ appearance and instruments to their band’s logo and album covers. The game also is expected to be released in the fall of this year, as rumored previously. For all the info click here for the official press release from Activision.
