First Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Tracks, Trailer

Publisher Activision has unveiled the first hard-rockin' batch of songs from Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, as well as releasing a teaser trailer for Neversoft and Vicarious Visions' rhythm game sequel which was previously known as Guitar Hero 6.

Warriors of Rock "will once again redefine music gaming," Activision claims, with a "completely redesigned rock-inspired guitar controller," 'Quickplay+' challenges and a "story-driven" Quest Mode starring Gene Simmons as "the Demi-God of Rock."

Players will embark upon a "larger-than-life, epic rock journey" from a New York punk club to "molten lava fields of rock treachery," transforming into "rock warriors" with "unique, game-changing powers" to help the KISS bassist "save rock n' roll." Right then.
