Dismal Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Sales Could Signal a Trend in the Music Genre

If you've been following the yearly to bi-yearly releases of music games, you know the genre is becoming increasingly competitive.  But could the over saturation of music titles be signaling a change in consumers wants?  Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz has put Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock sales numbers at 89,000 units for the first 5 days following launch.  It may not sound that bad, but lets look at some perspective.

Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock Entire Setlist Revealed

With the release of the game a little over a month away, Activision has spilled the complete setlist for Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock.  A quick look over the list indicates a shift back to the heavy metal, shredding style of the early years of the series.  Multiple songs from Megadeth and Rush's epic masterpiece "2112" are among the highlights.  Warriors of Rock may not have keys like its biggest competitor soon will, but with a solid group of tunes, a souped up story line, and the Soundgarden album tie-in, it looks like a fine choice for co-op music game fans this fall.

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Quest Mode Details

The big innovation in this fall's Guitar Hero entry, subtitled Warriors of Rock, might just be Quest Mode.  This story-based progression through the catalog of tunes looks to spice up the experience a bit by incorporating more video game standards like character abilities and boss fights.  (Let's hope they are better done than the terrible boss battles of Guitar Hero III.)  We've got a video explaining what makes Quest Mode unique, as well as a fresh gallery full of screenshots.  There's no keytar to be found anywhere, but it does look like it could be a whole lotta fun.

Guitar Hero Warriors of Rock Revealed With Co-Op Quest Mode

Last year, the Guitar Hero brand was a bit too prolific.  That seems to have changed in 2010, with but one Guitar Hero game on the horizon.  All sorts of information has been revealed about the next Guitar Hero, subtitled Warriors of Rock.  Releasing this fall, Warriors of Rock will have a new "story-based" Quest Mode, narrated by none other than Gene Simmons.  Co-op would seem to be a point of emphasis in Quest Mode, as players "join together" on an epic journey to save rock and roll.
