Unleash Your Inner Rock Star

Guitar Hero Live is here. FreeStyleGames reinvented the legendary Guitar Hero franchise, with two innovative gameplay modes and an all-new guitar controller.

GH Live mode puts you onstage, with a heart-stopping first-person perspective as a real crowd reacts to the notes you play. Or switch over to GHTV — an always-on music video network, where you can play along in real time, discover new music and challenge friends around the world.

Be the hero.

Feel the rush of performing live, in front of audiences in a first-person view. Fight the stage fright and bring down the house with the help of a real band backing you up.

You rock. The crowd reacts.

Want to know how you're doing? Watch the faces in the crowd. They react in real time to your performance. Are they screaming your name — or screaming for you to get off stage?

Awesome music. Epic venues.

You'll experience it all, from the intimacy of a small club to the massive main stage of an epic outdoor festival. You'll play as the lead guitarist of multiple bands across a wide variety of music genres.

Jump in.

GHTV is a 24-hour, always-on, playable music video network where you and your guitar are the stars. With over 150 videos available from the start, the feed will be continuously updated with hits from yesterday and today.

Watch whatever you want.

Choose from a range of channels featuring a range of genres. On-demand videos mean you can watch your favorites again and again. You can even earn special premium shows as you play.

You versus the world.

GHTV doubles as a live competition between friends and music fans all over
the world. See how you stack up, unlock new rewards and content, and show
off your incredible high scores.

For those about to rock.

The latest guitar is more real than ever. The new 2x3 button layout mirrors what it's like to play chords on real strings, making the game easier to pick up and even more challenging to master.
