Next ‘Guitar Hero’ announced

IGN has the scoop on the next installment in the “Guitar Hero” franchise, tentatively titled “Guitar Hero Greatest Hits.”

As you probably gathered from its name, “Greatest Hits” is a collection of 48 tracks that have previously appeared in “Guitar Hero,” updated to be playable with the full band dynamic introduced in “World Tour.” And yes, Dragonforce’s “Through the Fire and Flames” has already been confirmed as one of the songs appearing on the new disk. You may need to buy another drum kit after trying to survive that one.

Other songs announced included “Them Bones” by Alice in Chains, “Nothin’ but a Good Time” by Poison and Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock n’ Roll.”

“Guitar Hero Greatest Hits” will likely be released toward the end of this year.
