Guitar Hero 5: Four Of Anything

Guitar Hero 5 will let up to four players rock out on the same instrument at the same time. That's four guitarists or four microphones and yes, even four drummers.

The game will also let you mix and match willy nilly what instruments you want to play as a group, so you can set up the instruments you want and only the instruments you want. The four-player drop-in, drop-out support is available in all modes of play, even career.

The game's new Rockfest mode lets four players play in a variety of head-to-head modes online or on the same console. As players go through the song the difficulty adjusts depending on how you play. You drop down a level for every third missed note and jump up in difficulty for every 20 notes you land in a row. The player with the most points wins.

Of course the driving force behind any Guitar Hero game is its soundtrack and this one will launch with a nice selection of songs including music from Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys and Johnny Cash.

The game will let you jump right in without worrying about menus or unlocking songs and all previously available downloadable music will be playable on Guitar Hero 5.

    Thank fuck. Unlockable content in multiplayer games should be illegal.

    Wow, Neversoft are doing to Guitar Hero what they did to Tony Hawk; crank out game after game until everybody is sick of it.

    I'd rather save my money for Rock Band DLC

      @Blackwater: Yeah, I'd much rather save my money and buy rock band DLC at over $2.00 AU a song than get a whole new game with 80 odd songs for $80.00AU.

      Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to say either rock band or guitar hero are superior in what they are offering, just that I'd rather activision churn out more full games since it's much better value than track packs.
