It’s Time To Save The World With Rock, Again

In an easily prophesied, inevitable, turn Activision, Vicarious Visions, and Neversoft have announced the next Guitar Hero game. This time it will be a full fledged sequel and sounds like it will be filled with even more content than ever before. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock promises to be chock-full of rock and roll goodness with 90+ songs on the disc alone, while also being compatible with the 500+ song Guitar Hero database, a new story mode with assurances that it actually will be story-driven, and an all new guitar controller.

The new story mode, known as Quest Mode, will be narrated by Gene Simmons of the glam metal/rock band, KISS. Through Gene’s guidance the player will rock his/her way using any of the now established instruments (guitar, drums, microphone, bass) from unknown lackey until the end where one must tackle the demi-god of rock known as “The Beast.” Say, doesn’t that sound a lot like Guitar Hero: III?

The talent of Gene Simmons isn’t the only thing that will be new in the game, however. With the new Quickplay+ players will be given 13 new challenges of rock to enhance every challenge-driven-addict’s game experience. These challenges will be utilized on every track on disc as well as “most of the downloaded and imported” songs in the Guitar Hero library. Coinciding with Quickplay+ will be “more rewards and content than ever before” along with a Challenge Leaderboard for those of us who need to prove to the world that they are, in fact, a guitar hero.

On par with standards for the lead-up to a release of a new music-rhythm game Activision has released the first set of tracks that will be featured in Warriors of Rock. Check it out here and take a look at the new guitar controller, because hey, we all need more guitars, right? As of right now the game will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii in Autumn of 2010, as a solid date has yet to be set. The 360 and PS3 versions are in development by Neversoft while Vicarious Visions is taking over for the Wii release.
