BandFuse: Rock Legends Brings Slash Back to Gaming
Plus songs from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Coldplay, Maroon 5 and more.
February 22, 2012
BandFuse: Rock Legends, the newest music game to interact with real instruments, is headed to Xbox 360.
The game will use real guitars and microphones and feature legitimate guitar tablature instead of the note highways seen in most recent music games. Players will be guided by rock legends including Slash from Guns N' Roses and more.
According to a press release, "a unique interface using animated tablature will simplify music for beginners, showing them where to put their fingers and when to hit the strings. Experienced guitarists will be challenged to master solos and advanced techniques, playing along with songs exactly as recorded by the original artists."
The game will be playable with any guitar using an included adaptor and will be able to apply effects like distortion and reverb. It will include songs from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Slash, Maroon 5, Coldplay, Five Finger Death Punch and more, plus a full career mode. A Total Song Control option will allow players to "slow down songs to hear every nuance or loop your favorite segments as you jam along."
BandFuse: Rock Legends is set to be released on Xbox 360 later this year.
