New Guitar Hero III Info

Published On May 23, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

Activision have revealed some new details about Guitar Hero III. First up, the Guitar controller will be modelled on the Gibson Les Paul and will be wireless, something disappointingly neglected with Guitar Hero II. The controller (which will also be used on all the next-gen versions) will have changeable faceplates and will have a new colour design on the buttons. Currently it’s unknown if 360 gamers will be able to use the Gibson X-Plorer from GHII.

The game itself will feature expanded multiplayer battles, loads of unlockable content and boss battles.

Activision also revealed the first few songs in the game:

  • Paint It Black (by The Rolling Stones)
  • Cherub Rock (by Smashing Pumpkins)
  • Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
  • The Metal (by Tenacious D)
  • My Name is Jonas (by Weezer)
  • Knights of Cydonia (by Muse)
  • Rock And Roll All Nite (as made famous by Kiss)
  • School’s Out (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
  • Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)
  • Cult of Personality (by Living Colour)
  • Barracuda (as made famous by Heart)

Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane, said:
“The development team at Neversoft has been exceptional, and we’ve been able to incorporate a host of fresh new online and multi-player game play modes, along with exciting content into this version of Guitar Hero that our fans have been asking for. Also, many of the top bands and songs we’ve tried to get in the past are now on board, and we’ve definitely got some giant aces in the hole to say the least. In addition, offering a new line of Gibson wireless guitars for each platform is going to truly add to the authentic rock star experience like no other.”
