Guitar Hero Live launched today and I had the chance to talk to Jamie Jackson about it, and to try and clear up some confusion about playing your favourite songs.
Guitar Hero, the pop culture phenomenon that introduced a new way to interact with music, is back with the all-new Guitar Hero Live, featuring breakthrough innovations that will re-ignite your dreams of becoming a rock star.
Developed by FreeStyleGames, the studio behind DJ Hero and DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero Live introduces two powerful ways to play, including a first-person point of view where you are up on stage as the star of the show. A quantum leap forward in immersion and realism, Guitar Hero Live is a live-action experience that delivers the full emotional roller coaster of being on stage, with players performing in a real band, in front of real crowds, who react in real time to how well or poorly you play.
Jamie Jackson is the Studio Head of FreeStyleGames who developed Guitar Hero Live, so over to Jamie:
Guitar Hero Live is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii U.
