on December 22, 2015 2:38 PM

For those addicted to Guitar Hero Live’s TV Mode, the new Premium Sets introduced this week have been announced, with more coming tomorrow. Premium Sets, which allow you to play select tracks before they are released to the general public a week later, are unlocked through either micro-transaction or completing select songs with qualifying scores. The following tracks are included in the Premium Sets this week:

System of a Down Premium Show

  • Aerials
  • Lonely Day
  • BYOB

Weezer: Live at iHeartRadio Theater & YouTube Space L.A.

  • Undone — The Sweater Song (Live)
  • Thank God for Girls (Live)
  • I Want to Break Free

Queen Premium Show

Additionally, the following songs have been made available to the general public and are worked into various Live Channels:

  • Ashley Clark – “Greyhound:
  • Carrie Underwood – “Good Girl”
  • Eric Church – “Creepin’”
  • Five Finger Death Punch – “Jekyll and Hyde”

  • Grizfolk – “The Struggle (Live)”
  • Grizfolk – “Troublemaker (Live)”
  • Motionless in White – “Break the Cycle”

To throw in more content, FreeStyleGames (in response to player requests) added a mode where you can directly challenge other players. In order to unlock the mode, you need to hit Level 10.

Rival Challenges occur twice in every half-hour show with the song choice being randomly selected. Winners will earn a substantial XP boost.

Players who have depleted their free song play tokens and aren’t fond of purchasing more (with in-game currency or microtransactions) will now be rewarded with three free plays a day.

Guitar Hero Live is currently available worldwide for iOS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
