Here, courtesy of music magazine Kerrang, is our first real look at footage from the upcoming Guitar Hero 6.
Guitar Hero is changing course with Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, a music game with some unexpected additions, including a story-driven quest mode that involves a group of heavy metal warriors seeking a legendary guitar and a battle with The Beast.
Unlike the previous title, Activision's next Guitar Hero game won't be numbered, so it won't be called "Guitar Hero 6". It'll be called "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock".
KISS frontman Gene Simmons confirming Guitar Hero 6 is about as newsworthy as Simmons confirming tomorrow will be called "Saturday." But he has, technically, and also vows to a British TV program (sigh ... programme) that he's the game's voice.
