The initial set list for Gutar Hero Live has been revealed, complete with expected classic and modern rock acts like the Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and… Skrillex?
Yes, the Live soundtrack is a mix of guitar-heavy tracks and more mainstream contemporary choices less concerned with crazy chord changes and powerful solos. Rolling Stone revealed the set list for the upcoming refresh of the Guitar Hero franchise, which includes everything from Green Day to Judas Priest to Ed Sheeran.
The set list also makes Guitar Hero Live the fourth music game to feature The Killers’ “When You Were Young,” a track that has been playable in a previous Guitar Hero game, as wel las in the Rock Band and SingStar franchises. A few other of the tracks are repeats from earlier music games as well, but none have quite the ubiquity as The Killers’ hit.
According to Rolling Stone, this set list is the first of a weekly batch of tracks that will eventually allow players to play through hundreds of songs either through the game’s single player campaign or the game’s Guitar Hero TV, an aspect that allows players to jam along to music videos.
Check out the track list below, and read up on the changes to the game with EW‘s hands-on impressions. Guitar Hero Live will debut this fall for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, and mobile devices.
