Guitar Hero Live features a new music streaming model that allows you to access new songs without having to play real money for them, and this aspect of the game is getting a lot more content very soon.
GHTV will be adding another 70 songs to the current 200 by the end of the year, bringing tunes from the likes of Alive In Chains, Judas Priest and Iggy Pop.
Additionally, all of these songs will be accompanied with a music video or a live performance from the band, sometimes with footage from an actual live DVD.
Lastly, the entire game’s music catalog will be free this weekend, beginning on Friday at 4PM PT.
Guitar Hero Live developers FreeStyleGames have revealed their plans for Guitar Hero TV, which is essentially where to find new music to play that isn’t on-disc.
However, the fashion in which gamers will have access to these songs will be not through direct ownership, but streaming. Rather than purchasing songs for a couple of bucks individually, you use in-game tokens to stream them through Guitar Hero TV.
This is definitely a new way of going about doing DLC, as it won’t require any real life money from the gamer and that’s awesome. It might not be exactly how people are used to doing things, but I have to give props to FreeStyleGames and Activision for going for something different.
Activision has been releasing a new batch of songs each week that will be included with their upcoming music game Guitar Hero Live, and now they have released the next batch of 10 songs.
The next 10 songs are:
- Alice In Chains – “Stone”
- Angus & Julia Stone – “A Heartbreak”
- Bullet For My Valentine – “Temper Temper”
- Catfish and the Bottlemen – “Kathleen”
- Deap Vally – “Lies”
- Neon Trees – “Everybody Talks”
- New Politics – “Harlem”
- Queen – “Tie Your Mother Down”
- Weezer – “Buddy Holly”
- Wolfmother – “Sundial”
Another solid batch of songs, though I’m particularly pumped that Wolfmother is joining the fray with “Sundial”. You also have your classic bands like Queen and Alice In Chains, as well as up-and-comers like Catfish and the Bottlemen. Nice variety!
It’s expected that a lot more information on Guitar Hero Live will be revealed at next week’s E3, so stay tuned for even more info.
