In what will be the largest collection of artists ever to appear in a Guitar
Hero game, singer-songwriter, actor, author, activist and lead singer/bassist of
The Police, Sting will add his voice and likeness as an in-game character.
Aspiring frontmen can take the stage as Sting throughout their vocal career or
play alongside him as he performs one of The Police classics, Demolition Man.
Hugely popular alternative metal band Tool, known for their epic, intense
musical arrangements and killer visual arts, will also soon be known for their
contribution to the upcoming Guitar Hero World Tour. Guitar Hero fans from all
over the world will be able to rock out to "Parabola" and Grammy-award winning
"Schism" from Tool's critically-acclaimed 2001 album Lateralus in addition to
"Vicarious" from their 2006 Grammy-award winning album 10,000 Days. The game
will also feature an all-new venue designed in collaboration with the band and
highlighting the art style that has become a staple in their music videos, live
shows and album artwork.
When the house lights go down this fall, a new generation of guitarists,
drummers and fearless frontmen will come together and rock with Guitar Hero
World Tour. The latest installment in the #1 best-selling video game franchise
of 2007, Guitar Hero World Tour transforms music gaming by expanding Guitar
Hero's signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience that
combines the most advanced wireless controllers with new revolutionary online
and offline gameplay modes including Band Career and 8-player "Battle of the
Bands," which allows two full bands to compete head-to-head online for the first
time ever. The game features a slick newly redesigned guitar controller, drum
kit controller and a microphone, as well as an innovative Music Studio music
creator that lets players compose, record, edit and share their own rock ‘n'
roll anthems. Music creators will also be able to share their recordings with
their friends online through GHTunes where other gamers can download and play an
endless supply of unique creations.
