Due to be released in June, Guitar Hero fans everywhere will be able to rock once more with Activisions latest announcement of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. The latest Guitar Hero instalment gives gamers the chance to play in the shoes of Whitford (guitar), Perry (guitar) and Hamilton (bass) beside drummer Kramer and frontman Tyler.
â€œHaving a game built around Aerosmith has been a huge honour and really a great experience for us,â€ says Joe Perry. â€œWeâ€™ve put a lot of ideas into the game so that fans can have fun interacting with our music, getting inside our body of work and learning about the bandâ€™s history.â€
Players will experience the legendary career of Aerosmith, from their first gig to them becoming rock royalty, whether itâ€™s jamming at venues from historical moments in the bands career, to rocking to Aerosmithâ€™s greatest hits like â€œSweet Emotionâ€ or - what was recently announced by Activision â€“ playing songs from bands that had either performed with or inspired Aerosmith.
Mott the Hoople's â€œAll the Young Dudesâ€, The Kinks' â€œAll Day and All Night,â€ Joan Jett's â€œHate Myself for Loving Youâ€ and Cheap Trick's "Dream Police." are the recent songs that have been announced for Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, to be played alongside Aerosmithâ€™s other greatest hits within the game.
â€œWe are extremely excited that Aerosmith chose to team up with Guitar Hero, bringing one of the worldâ€™s all-time best-selling artists together with one of the biggest video game brands, to deliver a new and unique interactive way for our customers to connect with artists and their music,â€ said Dusty Welch, head of publishing for Activision/RedOctane.
Many Guitar Hero 3 fans will also be pleased to hear that Guitar Hero: Aerosmith spans across a wide range of console platforms once again: Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360, allowing fans that havenâ€™t yet upgraded to a next generation console not to be left behind.
To celebrate Guitar Heroâ€™s collaboration with Aerosmith, Guitar Hero 3: Rock Legend fans are now able to download Aerosmithâ€™s â€œDream onâ€ for free â€“ which is available at the Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox 360 and The Playstation Store for the PS3.
