Activision unveiled its next entry for the Guitar Hero franchise, called “Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock,” due out this fall.

The company has seriously scaled back its music game strategy, now offering only this one installment after two years of flooding the market with multiple iterations that threatened to commoditize the genre. In Warriers of Rock, Activision has introduced a couple of new elements to the music genre.

First, it adds a story-driven component in Quest Mode. From the release:

In Quest Mode, using any combination of instruments, players will embark on a larger-than-life, epic 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 unique, game-changing powers to help the Demi-God of Rock take down “The Beast” and save rock n’ roll.

Gene Simmons of KISS lends his voice to narrate Quest Mode and serves as the voice for the Demi-God.

For those not interested in following the story mode, the standard Guitar Hero stand-alone and competitive modes still apply.

Also new is yet another plastic guitar controller being sold with the game. Few details are being shared about the controller at this time, other than it was “inspired and born from the game’s unique art style and specifically made for shredding.” OK.
