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 is just a couple of weeks away, and the weekly Track List Friday reveals are still going strong. 12 more songs have been revealed by Activision, and they have all been featured in previous games in the series.
Of course, this is being done to introduce a bit of nostalgia, while also giving gamers a new way to play their favorite songs with the all new guitar controller. Check out the 12 new songs below.
1. Living Colour – Cult Of Personality
2. Pat Benatar – Hit Me With Your Best Shot (Live)
3. Ratt – Round and Round
4. Slipknot – Before I Forget
5. AFI – Girl’s Not Grey
6. Warrant – Cherry Pie
7. Incubus – Drive
8. Faith No More – Epic
9. Audioslave – Cochise
10. Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
11. Queen – We Are The Champions
12. Disturbed – Down With The Sickness
Guitar Hero Live launches on October 20th, 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
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.

Guitar Hero Live is developed by FreeStyleGames and published by Activision for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and iOS. It’s set to launch in the Fall of this year.
Check out the folks behind the scenes who are working on bringing you a new era of Guitar Hero.
Freestyle Games and Guitar Hero Games have released a video that takes you behind the scenes of their upcoming Guitar hero Live.
During the 4+ minute video you get a great sense of the passion that is behind this project, with the devs claiming that they waited a while to bring the series back to ensure that it would be worth it.
They also discuss the redesigned guitar controller, with this one now having two rows of 3 buttons rather than one row of 5. They say that this may prove easier for some people on lower difficulties as it means they won’t have to use their pinkies, though on hard and expert it will be even more challenging as more difficult chords get thrown into the mix.
