Guitar Hero: Aerosmith
is set for release in June
, but as most of you know it isn't the next true installment, it's an expansion upon GHIII
so to speak. But that's where Guitar Hero IV
comes in, the next true stand alone sequel and word from Activision is that it'll be a lot more like Rock Band
. Oh joy!
Talking to Conde Nast Portfolio magazine
, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick mentioned that Guitar Hero IV
will "include a lot of other instruments" including a microphone for vocals. Hence the Rock Band
comparison. Kotick also mentioned that GHIV
will be the "first game we've had in which we can use local content and local bands", possibly allowing them to release local band DLC to select markets.
So, there you have it. Guitar Hero IV
(not the Aerosmith
edition, that's something entirely separate) will feature additional instruments and local content while still retaining the Guitar Hero
name. Maybe, to clear up any confusion, they'll drop the "IV" and simply go with Guitar Hero: Rock Band Edition
