Feast your eyes on the first trailer for the potential Rock Band killer, Guitar Hero World Tour. Even though this trailer shows no actual gameplay, it does give us some insight to the game’s features. There’s a Battle of the Bands mode, the largest set-list ever, and the ability to create your own singles. That’s all well and good, but the real star here is the drums. Activision has upped the ante and created a drum set with cymbals! That’s one small step for authenticity, one large kick in the face to Rock Band. If they can make these drums more enjoyable than Rock Band, then we may have a new rhythm game champion.
For the record, this game will be available this fall for the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, DS, and Wii. We’ll also be getting the full rock experience in the way of guitar, bass, drums, and microphone. The only question now is, where am I going to put all this stuff?
