Santa Monica, CA – May 18, 2009 – Guitar Hero continues to re-define the
music and gaming experience this Fall with the release of Guitar Hero 5.
Featuring the best variety and biggest rock stars of today combined with
classic rock anthems, Guitar Hero 5 is the latest installment of the
world’s most popular music game. For the first time ever, players can
customize the make-up of their band by rocking with any combination of
instruments in-game: whether it be two guitars and two drums, or three
guitars and a microphone, any combination is possible, allowing players
to experience music their own way. Brand new, innovative, easy-to-use
gameplay modes like Party Play and RockFest put fun, competition and
control at center stage as fans tailor the Guitar Hero experience to
match their personal style and interests. For extended hours of
entertainment, downloadable content from Guitar Hero(r) World Tour will
be compatible with the game and will automatically be updated to include
all of the upgrades and enhancements of Guitar Hero 5.*

Guitar Hero 5 features the strongest, most varied set list to-date
comprised of master tracks from 85 of the hottest bands of today and the
biggest classic acts including; Kings of Leon, The Rolling Stones, The
White Stripes, Santana, Vampire Weekend, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Bob
Dylan, plus more than 25 artists from a variety of music genres that
will be making their music video game debut.

“Guitar Hero is the music platform for today because it celebrates the
social nature of music and brings fans closer to the music and artists
they love while allowing them to share and discover music with their
friends, family and online communities,” said Dan Rosensweig, president
and chief executive officer of Guitar Hero.

Among the first-time-ever features of Guitar Hero 5 are: Party Play,
where players can jump in or drop out of gameplay seamlessly; RockFest,
a comprehensive competitive experience available featuring five new
head-to-head modes playable online or in your living room; and the
ability to play the entire set-list from the first time the game is
turned on.

Guitar Hero 5 refines the player experience, enhances the art style and
redesigns core features such as GHMusic StudioSM, making it the most
accessible, fun-to-play and authentic experience for seasoned music
gamers as well as first-time players. New innovations such as Band
Moments, where bands are rewarded for hitting special note streams
together and song challenges where gamers are tasked to play through a
song a specific way, add a new competitive layer of excitement and
accomplishment to the music rhythm genre.
