First Details of Guitar Hero 5

The next Guitar Hero game on the horizon is going to be Guitar Hero 5, which was first announced last week in a statement from Activision. The new game is getting ready to drop in Autumn this year, and will feature new ways of playing the game as well as the expected all new setlist. The news come from a recent interview with the Washington post, where Brian Bright (Project Director) revealed the games first details.

Songs Announced:

Tom Petty - Running Down A Dream

The White Stripes - Blue Orchid

Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil

Bob Dylan - All Along The Watchtower

Santana - No One To Depend On

Vampire Weekend - A-Punk

Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire

Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire

Stevie Wonder - Superstition (where the guitar is going to be playing the notes of Stevie Wonders Clavinet Keyboard!)

Iron Maiden - Unknown Song

The White Stripes - Unknown Song

Also it seems some gameplay modes are going to be more suited at parties with the ability for all four members of the band to pick which ever instrument they like (even all playing guitar / drums at the same time), leave or join the song individually without interrupting the gameplay for others (great when you need to get another drink mid-song!) and change difficulty mid song too. Another new game mode mentioned was the Competitive Fest mode where players compete against each other at home (up to 4 players) or online (up to 8 players) for the highest score, presumably this would all be on the same instruments too, so good if you have a competitive group of friends to play with.

We can't wait to see what else it has to offer!

3 Drummers at the same time? You'd better have a big lounge!
