Slash Confirms Participation in Upcoming ‘Band Fuse: Rock Legends’ Video Game
Slash has been keeping busy of late while focusing his energies on another offshoot of his music career. The guitar great confirmed his participation in the upcoming 'Band Fuse: Rock Legends' video game in a new Twitter posting.
Video games like 'Rock Band' and 'Guitar Hero' were great in both drawing attention to a wide variety of bands and in some cases providing an entry point for some beginners to explore their interest in playing an instrument. However, one common bone of contention amongst those who play music for a living was that these games were not quite what the real experience was like. That's where 'Band Fuse: Rock Legends' comes in.
The game boasts "industry standard tablature animated for an authentic experience." Between one and four players can take part at the same time, playing along to the music as it would typically be read by musicians as they learned themselves. Slash says in his posting, "Hands down, best guitar game."
In addition, musicians like Slash, Zakk Wylde and bass great Bootsy Collins have filmed their own tutorials within the game teaching the players how to play certain tracks. But don't worry about keeping up with these real life master musicians, as the game supports all skill levels -- from the first-time player to professional musicians.
The game features 55 songs on the disc from acts like Rush, Pantera, Pearl Jam, Jane's Addiction and more and much like some of the guitar video game predecessors, there is a career mode where you advance to different challenges the better you perform.
The 'Band Fuse: Rock Legends' video game is expected for Xbox and PlayStation 3 this coming spring. You can watch a trailer for the game below.
