Guitar Hero’s hardest song makes a comeback

If you're a fan of the Guitar Hero series, there is one song that will no doubt make your finger hurt, just from thinking about it.

Guitar Hero Live launches Rival Challenges

Guitar Hero Live launches Rival Challenges

Just like with a real guitar, when you've played Guitar Hero long enough, you start to master the songs. But unlike a real guitar, you're not going to bust out your skills on stage for anyone, because it's still just a game. When you've got friends over, it's always fun to challenge them to a head-to-head match. But what about when you want to have that same kind of fun, but there's no one else around? Well, there's a new mode for that.

Guitar Hero Live debuts on Apple TV, but requires guitar controller

Guitar Hero Live has launched for the new Apple TV today, allowing users play the latest entry in the music game series on their television screen without the need of a dedicated game console.

Apple TV’s Guitar Hero Live, Disney Infinity have one caveat

Like it or not, the new Apple TV marks a new phase of gaming in the company's digital life. Naturally, there are already games announcing their support for the new living room device, some of which, like Crossy Road, might already be familiar to mobile gamers. But now even more "serious" titles are coming our way. Activision and Disney Interactive have revealed that games like Guitar Hero Live, Skylanders SuperChargers, and Disney Infinity 3.0 will be playable on the new Apple TV, but there is a very small catch.

Guitar Hero Live makes you an actual (digital) rock star

Guitar Hero Live makes you an actual (digital) rock star

The Guitar Hero franchise seems to have more life than actual rock stars. A full decade in, a typical band would have retired or split up for solo projects. Not Guitar Hero, though. Ten years old and a full five years or so since its last release, Guitar Hero Live is coming your way. Not a reboot, Guitar Hero Live is more than a game — it’s a platform. Along with the new-look game, you’ll also get access to GHTV, Guitar Hero’s play-along collection of videos.

Activision teases new incarnation of Guitar Hero for PS4 and Xbox One

Activision teases new incarnation of Guitar Hero for PS4 and Xbox One

Activision just released this teaser trailer for one of their soon-to-be-released games. The teaser is purposefully mysterious as it doesn't specify a game title, but after watching it we're leaning towards a new game from the Guitar Hero franchise. It's been almost five years since the last Guitar Hero game came out. The last title released was Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, and it sold only a disappointing 86,000 units in its first week. Is five years too long of a lapse for the game to win back its former cult status?

Harmonix hiring for next-gen, real-time combat game

Well here's something we definitely weren't expecting to see today: Harmonix, the genius studio behind Rock Band and Guitar Hero, is apparently developing a real-time combat game for next generation consoles. A job ad on Gamasutra reveals as much, with Harmonix looking for a "Combat Designer to create real-time, single-player combat experiences for a brand new IP on next generation hardware." In other words, it would appear that Harmonix is ready to branch out from the rhythm genre.
