The Guitar Hero gurus at Activision reveal new gameplay features and songs for the next-gen title.
Only a day after releasing bits of the Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s soundtrack, Activision has shared its secrets for Guitar Hero 3. Available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and Wii consoles, Guitar Hero 3 musicians can participate head-to-head online, possibly in the newly created battle mode, and face bosses in authentic rock venues during their solo career. Playstation 2 guitarists will rock out on an exclusive Gibson Kramer guitar while the newer systems will use wireless Les Paul models.
The initial list of tracks for the next Guitar Hero iteration include:
- "Paint It Black" - The Rolling Stones
- "Cherub Rock" - Smashing Pumpkins
- "Sabotage" - Beastie Boys
- "The Metal" - Tenacious D
- "My Name is Jonas" - Weezer
- "Knights of Cydonia" - Muse
- "Rock And Roll All Nite" - Kiss
- "School's Out" - Alice Cooper
- "Slow Ride" - Fog Hat
- "Cult of Personality" - Living Colour
- "Barracuda" - Heart
Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane, commented, "The development team at Neversoft has been exceptional, and we've been able to incorporate a host of fresh new online and multi-player game play modes, along with exciting content into this version of Guitar Hero that our fans have been asking for. Also, many of the top bands and songs we've tried to get in the past are now on board, and we've definitely got some giant aces in the hole to say the least. In addition, offering a new line of Gibson wireless guitars for each platform is going to truly add to the authentic rock star experience like no other."
