For those about to rock, Activision has a new toy for you.
Furious finger-fretting frontmen and their friends have another reason to be excited this September with the debut of the all-new, redesigned and customizable guitar controller for Activision Publishing, Inc.’s Guitar Hero®: Warriors of Rock. Developed by the in-house research and development team who have created and delivered the top-quality Guitar Hero® controllers everyone knows and loves, the style of the new guitar controller was inspired by the game’s unique art style and over-the-top story that players will experience in Quest Mode, the franchise’s first story-driven experience in which players embark on an epic rock journey to help save rock n’ roll. All essential parts are now contained within the neck allowing removable ‘wings’ to be replaced with alternatives, giving gamers the chance to tailor the guitar controller to their own unique styles.
“Guitar Hero’s success has been driven by the seamless integration of hardware and software; creating innovative and accessible gameplay in tandem with developing and manufacturing top-quality hardware peripherals,” said David Haddad, Chief Operating Officer for Guitar Hero. “With the new rock-inspired Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock guitar controller, our hardware team has once again proven themselves to be a world-class leader in the category delivering an awesome, top-quality and rocktastic controller that will be the musical weapon of choice for all budding rock stars this fall.”
In Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, join with friends on an epic rock journey to save rock n’ roll. Featuring an impressive 90+ track set list and a host of all-new gameplay features, living room legends and their friends can strum, drum and wail in the most immersive music videogame experience to date. Delivering the quintessential rock music collection that focuses on guitar shredding hits from bands such as Black Sabbath, Slipknot and Megadeth and larger-than-life band anthems from Queen, Muse and KISS, players can unleash more rewards and unlockable content than ever before in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock’s Quest Mode, the franchise’s first ever story-based mode, and Quickplay+, which invites challenge-starved fanatics to test their rock skills. Running on the powerful Guitar Hero engine that has been expanded and refined and with encores from the addictive, award-winning gameplay features that made Guitar Hero one of the most popular franchises of all-time – such as Party Play, Competitive modes and any combination of up to four instruments – the game offers a complete interactive and connected experience bringing friends and foes to the stage in the ultimate rock music experience.
