Activision‘s Guitar Hero video game has exposed gamers to loads of music they otherwise might not have encountered. Now, the video game developer has scored prog-rockers Rush and their epic 20-minute 2112 suite for the upcoming release of the popular series.
In a new story-based Quest Mode, gamers will be able play as eight Guitar Hero characters who transform into “rock warriors who must join together to use their unique, game-changing powers to help the Demi-God of Rock take down “The Beast” to save rock,” according to a press release.
In said press release, Geddy Lee said, “The music, the story and the journey of 2112 lends itself perfectly to the quest in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. In our story, the caves of 2112 are where our hero finds the lost guitar and this rediscovery of music is much like the Guitar Hero warriors’ journey to find the Demi-God of Rock’s Legendary guitar, which has been trapped in a cavern.”
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will be released on September 28 for PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and Nintendo Wii.
