The folks at FreeStyle Games are allowing Guitar Hero fans to use their voice as an instrument in the next installment of the revived music game. "Do, a deer, a female deer"—ahem.
Guitar Hero Live will be bringing live vocals into the mix, so those of us who love a good karaoke session can rejoice.
That's right. FreeStyle Games is branching out and will allow players to sing when Guitar Hero 4 arrives later this year. In a Guitar Hero Live trailer launched ahead of Gamescom, FreeStyle Games described how vocals will work in the game.
News of Guitar Hero Live's support for singers comes a week or so after FreeStyle Games shared some details about what the game's premium shows will entail.
"You can put a microphone in, a note highway is going to come across the top of the screen and your friends will be able to join you and sing their heart out," shared Jamie Jackson, FreeStyle Games' creative director and studio head.
The premium shows have been designed to give players new gameplay experiences and content, such as exclusive videos, in their first run and their live concert footage, according to Pete O'Donnell, FreeStyle Games design manager.
"On top of this, players will get a chance to win a plethora of prizes," said O'Donnell. "For example, there will be some unique Note Highways that are also exclusive to the premium show that they are won from. Bespoke Player cards will also be available, along with Status rewards that help you to level up faster."
As long as players complete the requisite challenges, they will be able to perform in the premium shows as many times as they want, according to O'Donnell.
Guitar Hero Live is scheduled for an Oct. 20 launch for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. In the meantime, check out the trailer detailing the game's voice component:
