‘Guitar Hero: Metallica’ dated

The next installment in the “Guitar Hero” franchise, featuring 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Metallica, will be available March 29 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Wii and PlayStation 2 versions will arrive later this spring.

The game features 28 songs from the Los Angeles-based rockers, along with tunes from Slayer, Alice in Chains, Queen and more. I’ll post a full track listing as soon as it’s released.
