The new Guitar Hero takes centre stage, and it’s dragging you along.
Freestyle Games and Guitar Hero Games have released a new video that gives players a behind the scenes look into the making of their upcoming music simulation party game, Guitar Hero Live. Jamie Jackson, Creative Director & Studio Head, talks alongside Jon Napier, Director of Projects, to run you through what they have in mind for the game.
Saying that they were “always sure” that the game wouldn’t return until the had seen a “enough of a leap over the previous generation”, they feel that now is the right time to bring the game back with the focus being on the player.
One of the goals of the developers, who are all “huge music fans” is to introduce you, the player, to new music and to that end they’re bringing a vast array of songs and genres to the game. They also talk about the new fretboard on the new guitar which is somewhat more realistic thanks to the better emulation of actual guitar finger placement. Having put their “hearts and souls” into developing the game, they are at least proving to be an enthusiastic developer.
