Guitar Hero is back and is called Guitar Hero Live. Activision has just removed the lid off the game and we have some exciting details to share with you.

The game will be coming to next-gen and last gen platforms and Wii U, including select mobile devices. However, there’s no mention of a PC version. It will cost $99.99 and will include a new redesigned controller as well as the image above shows.

There are a lot of new mechanics in GH Live and GHTV. It is being said that they are essentially two games for the price of one. GH Live lets you play as a rockstar in first-person view. It is said to be incredibly realistic.

GHTV is about discovering new music. Here’s the official description of what to expect from it.

With a network of playable music video stations, you can fire up GHTV and play along with official music videos from a broad range of genres. Across both modes, Guitar Hero Live will feature hundreds of songs from a diverse array of artists, including The Black Keys, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Gary Clark, Jr., Green Day, Ed Sheeran, The War on Drugs, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Pierce the Veil and Blitz Kids, with many more bands to be announced in the coming months.

The official trailer can be found below.
