Rush is Bringing Their Influence to Guitar Hero

July 21, 2010

Activision has announced that they have partnered up with Rush, one of the most influential rock bands in history. They will be bringing their seven-part suite from their album, 2112, to Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. Their influence will be felt in the game’s all-new, story-based Quest Mode when it arrives on store shelves this September.

“The music, the story and the journey of 2112 lends itself perfectly to the quest in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock,” said Geddy Lee of Rush.  “In our story, the caves of 2112 are where our hero finds the lost guitar and this rediscovery of music is much like the Guitar Hero warriors’ journey to find the Demi-God of Rock’s Legendary guitar, which has been trapped in a cavern.”

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will include the following:

  • “2112 Pt. 1 – Overture”
  • “2112 Pt. 2 – The Temples Of Syrinx”
  • “2112 Pt. 3 – Discovery”
  • “2112 Pt. 4 – Presentation”
  • “2112 Pt. 5 – Oracle: The Dream”
  • “2112 Pt. 6 – Soliloquy”
  • “2112 Pt. 7 – Grand Finale”

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock’s narrative-driven Quest Mode will have Rush and Guitar Hero fans experience 2112 in a new and authentic way. Players will traverse the three-part 2112 Rush-inspired venue and playing their way through the seven-part suite. On top of that, each song transition will feature band members narrating liner notes from the album.
