Guitar Hero 6 info from OXM hits the net

Saturday, 15th May 2010 16:30 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Information pertaining to Guitar Hero 6 has landed on the net, thanks to AGB posting scans of Official Xbox 360 magazine.

Expected to hit later in the year, according to the mag, you won’t be playing as any famous rock star this time out, but there will be some making cameos, most notably, Gene Simmons who will narrate an all new Quest Mode.

In it, you will be starting out from scratch, and as you go along, you will recruit rock stars like Metallica’s Lars Ulrich and unlock their songs.

Once you complete those, it will unlock an alter-ego who has a special ability, “like Warrior Lars who gains a multiplier of X6 instead of the standard x4″.

Here’s the list of what’s been done to the game, courtesy of GoNintendo:

  • Back to basics approach
  • Past Guitar Hero characters return
  • Recruit each character by playing their song sets
  • Unlock their alter-ego and gimmick (Lars becomes Warrior Lars, and Allows you to get a x6 multiplier)
  • Quickplay feature revamped
  • Carry over previous DLC
  • Streakers, Momentum, Do or Die now available in online competitive modes
  • New Power Challengers
  • Queen, Kiss, Black Sabbath confirmed
  • Quest Mode features Gene Simmons as narrator
  • Sustain open notes when playing bass
  • CBGB is the only real-world location to appear
  • No real-world celebrities as playable characters
  • Much bigger focus on rock ‘n’ roll

Still no date. Still no official press release. Shouldn’t be long now, though.

Thanks, Made2Game.

    If the whole ‘learn to play guitar’ rumour comes to fruition, Rock Band 3 seems infinitely more interesting than this.

    Rock Band has always been more interesting.

    So what exactly does “Back to basics approach” mean?

    I’m assuming it’s related entirely to the game menus, since the gameplay aspect of Guitar Hero hasn’t changed since it was first made.

    They’re clearly scraping the barrel of ideas for sequels now. Thank God.

    “Much bigger focus on rock ‘n’ roll”

    About damn time.

    I am so tired of obscure inde/alternative stuff. There is a reason Kiss is one of the best selling bands in history. Bring on Black Sabbath. Where is lead Zep? More Eagles. Rolling Stones. From The Animals to Def Lepeord. From Journey to Disturbed. There are tons of top selling bands that are actualy popular in more then a small handfull of 7-25yr old males. Seems to me that lot of great bands are yet to be put into a music game.

    Looking forward to this game, esp now that they have the backwards dlc stuff going on. About time. Will be playing Green Day RB soon!
