The makers of Guitar Hero and Rock Band are locked in a heated battle to give their customers the most music.
Owners of Guitar Hero: Metallica will be able to 39 songs import to their new copy of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, Activision said Tuesday. The importable songs include a whole curve of Metallica tunes and a handful of the better, tacked on tracks from acts like Kyuss, Mastodon, Diamond Head and Mercyful Fate.
This move puts pressure on Harmonix, which will exactly announce its own deal for importing tracks from Rock Band 2 to Rock Band 3. It also serves as a sly reminder that we’ll probably never play the fantastic music from The Beatles: Rock Band in Rock Band 3.
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is the sixth proper sequel to Activision’s popular rhythm action series. The new game brings a customizable guitar peripheral, fantasy themed superpowers for the in game musicians, a playable original composition by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and a CD featuring Soundgarden’s greatest hits.
