October does indeed sound like the month of the plastic instrument. Guitar Hero Live is set to release in just a few weeks, so Activision is taking these last few days to get the word out about its upcoming series revival. There are still some ideas about the game that need to be communicated to the general public, so Activision has turned on the James Franco signal for its latest trailer.
The latest Guitar Hero Live trailer illustrates one of its most distinct new features, that being the complete removal of fail states. Watch as James Franco and music icon Lenny Kravitz completely crash and burn as they try to keep up with the intense note highway, only to eventually turn things around and make a comeback at the end. Although, table dancing and couch jumping are not necessary (or recommended) actions.
Catch the full trailer below. Guitar Hero Live is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and mobile devices on October 20. An Apple TV version of the game is also coming soon.
