The team at FreeStyleGames continues to explore new ways to make GHTV an exciting experience for players. The studio has been listening to feedback from the community, most notably the desire for head-to-head competition to test your skills against other players.
When I hear Guitar Hero, I always think back to my college days. I was the only person in my circle of friends who had the game and two of the guitars. People rocked out at my place and I was always asked to bring Guitar Hero to other people’s homes; everyone wanted to play with the controller. It was something new, something strange, but most of all something fun. But for me, as much as the game was fun, it was also quite an experience getting to show people the new guitar controller. It will be a while before something will recapture those same feelings of newness, but Guitar Hero Live comes close.
Following the launch of Guitar Hero Live, players have rocked out to over 200 songs in GHTV, the world’s first playable music video network. Today, Activision and FreeStyleGames kick off a regular series of GHTV content additions that will be accessible to players who purchased the game free of charge, growing the already extensive library with new music on a regular basis. By the end of the year, over 70 new songs will be added to the platform and accessible by all players. In celebration of the new content, Activision is giving all Guitar Hero Live players free on-demand access to the entire GHTV catalogue throughout the whole weekend, startingFriday at 4am PT.
Starting tomorrow, fans can jam out to a themed show on GHTV called “Halloween Rocks!” The show will be broadcast on GHTV channel 1, and feature a one-hour curated block of the most sinister rock songs in GHTV to honor the year’s darkest night.
