Guitar Hero Live is coming FALL 2015!
You can rock out with a REAL crowd (and according to the trailer below, you also get time to feel like a REAL rocker backstage in a REAL band dressing room!
“Feel the rush of performing in a REAL band, in front of REAL crowds who react in REAL time to your performance. You’ll either win the crowd or lose them. Plus, your band mates will also let you know if you’re rocking out or need to pick it up. Fight the stage fright and bring down the house.”
“Guitar Hero Live, you’ll take the stage in a variety of venues. You’ll play in the small clubs and on the massive main stage of an outdoor festival, rocking out every step of the way.”
A little more about what has changed about HOW you will play guitar in the new Guitar Hero from IGN:
“Guitar Hero Live abandons the series’ usual five-fret, five-color system for creating chords. Green, red, yellow, blue, and orange buttons, each set to a single slot on the fret board, are a thing of the past. Guitar Hero Live’s guitar uses just the top three frets, divided down the middle to create one button on the inside, and another on the outside of each fret. The six buttons are then divided in a binary black/white, rather than singular colors. The buttons on the inside of the fret board are labeled black, and the outside frets are labeled white.
It’s a strange mental undertaking to rethink Guitar Hero in this way. Not only are the colors we’ve relied on for so long completely replaced, but the instrument includes an additional button – and all of this in a new, tighter location. But it all makes sense, both from a psychological perspective, and in terms of making Guitar Hero feel like a new game again.
The binary color scheme simplifies the way your brain interprets the iconography on-screen – you’re seeing in twos and thinking in threes. Black automatically means the three buttons on the inside, limiting how the note track can psych you out. A sudden orange after a string of reds, blues, and yellows could break your rhythm. Guitar Hero Live eliminates this issue entirely. Also, the different textures on the black/white columns let you know where your fingers are set so you don’t have to look at your hand if a finger slips.
