Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock official, first trailer

Activision has went and formalized Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock today.

Details on the game’s new Gene Simmons-narrated story-based Quest mode were already outed a few days ago so the contents of the reveal trailer above shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but there is talk of a new guitar controller that raises an eyebrow.

Indeed, the game will ship with a new peripheral designed specifically for shredding, perhaps even a useful piece of equipment given the shredalicious playlist (first 35 songs listed below), also the biggest seen in any previous on-disc Guitar Hero release; 90+ tracks.

Also included will be Quickplay+ — to be compatible with all songs in the Guitar Hero music library — which brings 13 new gameplay challenges, all leading to higher ranks and content unlocks.

No release dates yet, but the game’s out this fall for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
