Guitar Hero's getting hardcore it seems as Neversoft reveals the focus for 'Warriors of Rock' was "first and foremost on shredding".
"All of the cool features and things we did in GH5 - the level of polish - [are] still there. Party Play still exists. The ability to play with any instrument combination - all that stuff is still in the game," project leader Brian Bright told Nintendo Power.
"But what we strove to do here is hand-pick all the songs... We wanted to focus first and foremost on shredding kind of rock."
That's why Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock has gone a bit Jack Black on our arses with demonic figures and a fat warthog guitarist featuring in a rock and roll tale of 'The Demigod of Rock' and 'The Beast'.
"The Beast defeats the demigod of rock, and the demigod of rock is entombed in stone, and his legendary guitar is banished," says Bright.
"[The guitar] is the source of his power. And so you are going through and assembling an army of warriors to be able to defeat the Beast."
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock first emerged a few days ago in name form.
