Since the game’s release, players have played over 200 songs in GHTV, the world’s first playable music video network. Activision and FreeStyleGames kick off a regular series of GHTV content additions that will be accessible free of charge to players who purchased the game, growing the already extensive library with new music on a regular basis. By the end of the year, over 70 new songs will be added to the platform and accessible by all players.
To celebrate this announcement of new content, Activision is giving all Guitar Hero Live players free on-demand access to the entire GHTV catalogue throughout the whole weekend, starting at 12pm this Friday, 6th November.
This week, GHTV introduces the following:
- Black Veil Brides Premium Show, which includes playable footage from the band’s live concert DVD will be made available tomorrow.
- Legendary Headliners Premium Show, including “Monster” by Paramore, “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” by Fall Out Boy and “First Date” by Blink-182 is live now.
- Pop Goes GHTV Premium Show, featuring “Chocolate” by The 1975, “Believer” by American Authors and “Budapest” by George Ezra is live now.
In the coming weeks, Activision and FreeStyleGames plan on releasing even more music such as Judas Priest, Iggy Pop, Bully, Leon Bridges, Biffy Clyro, Weezer, Rival Sons, St. Vincent, Alice in Chains, System of a Down, Bring Me the Horizon; just to name a few.
Most of the times, new playable music will arrive in GHTV first as Premium Shows. To access most Premium Shows, players can complete the in-game challenge of achieving at least three stars on three different tracks in the GHTV channels or in the catalogue.
By playing a Premium Show, players have the chance to earn in-game prizes such as status and coin boosts, unique player cards or note highways to show off their rockstar status online. Generally, after a Premium Show ends, the songs will be added to the on-demand catalogue, and then they will enter the regular channel rotation.
Guitar Hero Live is out now for PS3/PS4/Wii U/Xbox 360/Xbox One and iOS devices.
