“We believe there is no better title to feature micro-transactions than a music game like Guitar Hero II, where the content is the basis for your experience,” said Dusty Welch, head of publishing, RedOctane. “The relationship with the Xbox Live Marketplace creates endless possibilities for exclusive content.”
An official image of the new X-plorer controller (pictured) has also been released. The re-designed peripheral is obviously modelled on Gibson’s real life guitar of the same name.
The title is developed by Harmonix, which was purchased by MTV for $175million last week.
The release date of the title is yet to be announced.
