To market the return of Guitar Hero as Guitar Hero Live, a special event was held in New York where the game was played by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. The reveal event also featured Activision’s CEO, Eric Hirshberg, and the studio head and creative director of FreeStyleGames, Jamie Jackson.
Hirshberg and Jackson talked about the
revived game before the two band members came on to test their skills against the game. Pre-orders opened on Wednesday, and the game will have a full release on smart devices. You can see more gameplay footage here.
