Latest Guitar Hero 5 News and Setlist

Well if there is one thing the Guitar Hero series knows how to do well it is hype an upcoming game and although they are making a lot of noise about Band Hero and DJ Hero it is the GH5 drum that has been beaten the loudest.

GH5 introduces new party and battle modes that allow people to drop into and out of songs when they feel like it and also change things like difficulty mid-song which will not only make the game more accessible to your friends who maybe have been a bit sceptical, but also allow you to really push yourself by turning the difficulty up when you can, knowing you can turn it back down and not ruin it for everyone else if you fail. Talking about failing there will also be new ways out of that too with a Rockband-esque revival move whereby your starpower can bring you friends back into the game after they have failed! Sweet!

The thing that really makes or breaks these games though is always the setlist and this one is looking like a good one:

Added to these great tracks and new modes is a new, less linear, career mode. All of the songs will be available from the beginning and will not have to be played one at a time by each individual instrument but rather there will be gigs of increasing difficulty which can be played by any number of players on any combination of instruments on any difficulty, hopefully finding the perfect balance of fun vs challenge for all your friends.
