The first band-specific version of Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, was announced today as being in development for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is set to ship in June.
Since Guitar Hero is, after all, a game about guitars, players will take on the role of Joe Perry (guitar), Brad Whitford (guitar) and Tom Hamilton (bass), as they rock out alongside frontman Steven Tyler and drummer Joey Kramer.
Gamers will experience Aerosmith’s Grammy-winning career, from their first gig to becoming rock royalty. As fans progress through their careers in the game, they can rock out to scores of Aerosmithâ€™s greatest hits, as well as songs from celebrated artists that the band has either performed with or has been inspired by in some way.
To celebrate the announcement, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock fans can download Aerosmith’s “Dream On” for free from Feb. 16-18 on Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox 360 or the PlayStation Store for the PS3.
