The game will release October 20th, 2015 across all current and last gen platforms and “select mobile devices.” The game comes bundled with the new guitar for $99.99, and you need the upgraded guitar to play the game so there are no other options.
The game features “live” footage of events that will grow as you move further along in the game. A new feature also includes a music video network that allows you to play along to popular songs while watching the music video behind the gameplay.
GHTV is a 24-hour, always-on mode that lets fans play along to a continually-updated collection of official music videos – across a wide variety of genres – from the newest releases to favorite hits. Fans can pick from multiple channels and themed shows, discovering new songs as they play, and can also choose songs to play on-demand. In GHTV, fans can also play with their friends in the same room or against players from around the world, while completing challenges along the way for sweet rewards.
