Red Octane's Guitar Hero II is set to break the Xbox 360 for downloadable content. The guitar strumming videogame arrives in the UK in April and will feature exclusive content from the likes of Alice Cooper and Pearl Jam.
“With its large integrated hard drive, Xbox 360 provides an incredible platform for facilitating downloadable content,” said Dusty Welch, Head of Publishing, RedOctane. “We believe there is no better title to feature micro-transactions than a music game like Guitar Hero II, where the content is the basis of your experience. The relationship with the Xbox Live Marketplace creates endless possibilities for exclusive content.”
"We're still in the process of confirming the final details and continue to secure more licenses, though nothing has been announced at this time, we can definitely say nobody will be disappointed," said Ted Lange the associate producer in an interview with IGN. "We are planning on having more online content than anyone has ever seen in a game to this date."
Unfortunately, Guitar Hero II won't ship with a wireless guitar, but Lange did confirm that we shouldn't have to wait too long before we have the freedom to test out our Jimi Hendrix moves.
