Rock Band may be getting all this press for its unique gamplay, but GUITAR HERO III is not just going to bend over and give up its reigns as the most metal video game out there.
METAL Injection can exclusively report that Guitar Hero III will feature rock icon SLASH of Velvet Revolver and Guns 'N' Roses fame as a playable character in the game. Slash went down to the Guitar Hero studios and was placed in a motion capture suit to record his shredding. To unlock the Slash character, you will have to face him in a 1-on-1 duel after completing all the songs in the game.
As we've previously reported, here are the confirmed tracks for the third version of the Guitar Hero series:
Evenflow: Pearl Jam
Lay Down: Priestess
Paint It Black: The Rolling Stones
Cherub Rock: Smashing Pumpkins
Sabotage: Beastie Boys
The Metal: Tenacious D
My Name is Jonas: Weezer
Knights of Cydonia : Muse
Rock And Roll All Nite: Kiss
School’s Out: Alice Cooper
