Guitar Hero World Tour

When the house lights go down this fall, a new generation of axe shredders, drummers and fearless frontmen will be born with Activision's Guitar Hero World Tour.

The latest installment in the best-selling music/rhythm video game franchise, Guitar Hero World Tour transforms music gaming by expanding Guitar Hero's signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience that combines the most advanced wireless instruments with new revolutionary online and offline gameplay modes including online Band Career and 8-player "Battle of the Bands," which allows two full bands to compete head-to-head online for the first time ever. The game features a slick newly redesigned guitar, an authentic electronic drum kit and a microphone, as well as an innovative Music Studio music creator that lets players compose, record, edit and share their own rock 'n' roll anthems.

State of the Art Wireless Instruments - In addition to a newly redesigned, more responsive guitar controller which features a touch-sensitive slide bar on the neck, Guitar Hero World Tour will deliver the most realistic drum experience ever in a video game with an authentic drum kit. Featuring three drum pads, two raised cymbals and a bass kick pedal, the drum controller combines larger and quieter, velocity-sensitive drum heads with soft rubber construction to deliver authentic bounce back and is easy to set up, move, break down and store.

The Next Great Songwriter, is You - Guitar Hero World Tour's innovative new Music Studio lets players express their musical creativity by giving them access to a full complement of tools to create digital music from scratch utilizing the redesigned touch-sensitive guitar controller and an authentic drum kit. Virtuosos can then play their compositions in-game and share the recordings with the entire Guitar Hero community through GHTunes where other gamers from around the world will be able to download and play their original tracks.

An Original Set List that's Truly "Everlong" - Guitar Hero World Tour features the largest, most diverse on-disc set list to appear in a music-based video game. Comprised entirely of memorable master recordings from some of the greatest artists of all-time including Van Halen, Linkin Park, The Eagles, Sublime and many more, Guitar Hero World Tour delivers over 85 tracks for countless hours of rocking. In addition to the killer track list, the game will feature rock icons such as Hayley Williams of Paramore and Travis Barker of +44 and blink-182 and a collection of many other superstar musicians making their video game debuts on the Guitar Hero stage.

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough - Starting with initial releases at launch, gamers will be able to expand the "Everlong" set list with frequent downloadable singles and track packs - including for the first time ever, in-game downloadable content on Wii. Making the options endless, rock stars will have a limitless supply of downloadable content through GHTunes creating a set list where the music never ends. In both the quickplay and career game modes, gamers can build their own playlists which allow them to select and perform up to six tracks in a single gig.

Making the Band - Guitar Hero World Tour features an all-new cooperative band experience allowing gamers to share in the most social and expressive music revolution ever. Budding rock stars can live out their rock 'n' roll fantasies by playing either a single instrument or any combination of instruments, in addition to the full band experience. When rocking as part of a band, up to four players can jam together in quickplay or as they progress through a career. Both band and single-player careers feature non-linear progression giving artists the option to change difficulty and instruments with a variety of different gigs available at any time.

Global Invasion - Guitar Hero World Tour introduces revolutionary new online game modes including "Battle of the Bands" which allows eight players to join online and challenge each other band-to-band to establish global supremacy. Virtual musicians in need of band mates can take their careers online forming worldwide ensembles so no rock star ever has to play a gig solo.

Fully Customisable - Featuring one of the most extensive character creators ever, Guitar Hero World Tour allows gamers to create a rock star with style as unique as their own. Absolute customization from the clothes to the facial and body structure to the tattoos and accessories, players are encouraged to unleash their inner rock legend. The Rock Star Creator doesn't just allow players to build the ultimate rock god; the in-depth creators include the ability to customize guitars, drums and microphones. Adding yet another layer of personalization, gamers can create custom logos for their instruments, band or album covers.

I can't wait for this, I need it! They added a mic and drums to it just like rockband. But now the drums have 3 pads and 2 cymbals. And there's a create your own character, and I think there's some kind of version of make your own song! ZOMG can't wait.


Wiipaw said:

God, look at those graphics. Damn. Just look at them. Looks like High Voltage's speech is rubbing off on other developers. And the customization of characters and guitars. Deep and complex, just the way I like it. And. You can make, or at least remix, your own songs? With 4 players that can play? This game is going to kick more ass than GH3 and Rock Band combined. What's next, DLC? Wiiware is out, as you all know, so it seems more likely this time around. Rocker Mario FTW.

The woman in the middle pic in the bottom row looks stoned, like most rock stars.

I totally can't wait for this game! It is going to kick butt! You totally said it all ToTaLgAmEr, those new features are going to rock.

You can create your own songs and post them on GH tunes. You can also download tunes from other rockers.

Which one, Rockband Wii or this? Please help! I can't waste 169.99 on a outdated video game AND drumset.


ishimaru said:

Yes! Finally a game that will offer DLC and for Wii. I hope it's better than rock band.


Kid said:

I think this'll be way better than rockband. It has more features and I think it has a better drumset. Rock band was very fun on the drums but I found the guitar gameplay to be disappointing. I love the guitar gameplay on guitar hero (duh because that's the main focus).


samthespark said:

The developers said they would outdo rockband every way possible, and they did. Get GH4, you can play any song you want, by making it or downloading it, or sd card. Anyway, the Wii version has 360 graphics and is running at 60 FPS.


AlbinoJedi said:

I got this game for Christmas and it totally rocks. The makers thought of everything! I even made a character on it that looks just like me. I know it already has 3 Tool songs on it, but I would really like their song "46 and 2" to be downloadable content. I hope Activision sees this because that is an awesome song.

Can you play it without guitar?
