Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Official, First Info and Images

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is now official and this one is going to be very different.

For starters the game's story mode is going to be a “rock ‘n’ roll fantasy” narrative. The story will focuse on a battle between The Beast and the demigod of rock.

Project lead Brian Bright had this to say on the game:

“The Beast defeats the demigod of rock, and the demigod of rock is entombed in stone, and his legendary guitar is banished. [The guitar] is the source of his power. And so you are going through and assembling an army of warriors to be able to defeat the Beast,” Bright explained.

“All of the cool features and things we did in GH5 – the level of polish – [are] still there. Party Play still exists. The ability to play with any instrument combination – all that stuff is still in the game. But what we strove to do here is hand-pick all the songs… We wanted to focus first and foremost on shredding kind of rock,”.

This is a completely new direction for the series and brings up that same question, is it enough to bring interest for the genre? It is certainly different but is this what the fans want? Personally I prefer Rock Band 3's approach on trying to create a more authentic experience.

This story has come from gaming magazine Nintendo Power and there for the images below are taken from the Wii version:

  1. The story sounds a little like a rip off of The Forbidden Kingdom. Ancient Kungfu Master is entombed in stone until his magic staff is returned t him so he can beat the bad guy. hmmm....
