Crazy new Quest mode accompanies latest Guitar Hero entry

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is a brand new entry in the popular guitar shredding video game series and will feature an all-new, story-driven Quest Mode, a completely redesigned rock-inspired guitar controller, the biggest on-disc selection of rock music ever in a Guitar Hero game and Quickplay+, which invites challenge-starved fanatics to test their rock skills in any of the on-disc or over 500 songs in the Guitar Hero Music Library.

Due for release in Autumn, it will once again run on the Guitar Hero engine that has been expanded and refined. There's the return of features like Party Play’s jump in/jump out gameplay, a host of Competitive modes and the ability to play any combination of guitar, bass, drums and vocals.

The big new addition is Quest Mode. Using any combination of instruments, players will embark on a larger-than-life, rock journey from the stage of CBGBs, the infamous punk-rock club in New York City, to the molten lava fields of rock treachery as eight Guitar Hero characters transform into rock warriors that must join together to use their game-changing powers to help the Demi-God of Rock take down “The Beast” and save rock n’ roll.


Quickplay+,features 13 totally unique gameplay challenges for every on-disc track as well as most downloadable and importable songs from Guitar Hero World Tour forward. Gamers will complete challenges such as Band Streak, High Score and Power Challenge, which allows players to choose any two warrior powers they have unlocked to try and earn ridiculously high scores, to rank up and unlock more rewards and content than ever before. All-new Challenge Leaderboards have been created in order to capture the outrageous scores that are capable with Quickplay+.
