Developed by the in-house research and development team who have created and delivered the top-quality Guitar Hero
controllers everyone knows and loves, the style of the new guitar controller was inspired by the game’s unique art style and over-the-top story that players will experience in Quest Mode, the franchise’s first story-driven experience in which players embark on an epic rock journey to help save rock n’ roll. All essential parts are now contained within the neck allowing removable ‘wings’ to be replaced with alternatives, giving gamers the chance to tailor the guitar controller to their own unique styles.
“Guitar Hero’s success has been driven by the seamless integration of hardware and software; creating innovative and accessible gameplay in tandem with developing and manufacturing top-quality hardware peripherals,” said David Haddad, Chief Operating Officer for Guitar Hero. “With the new rock-inspired Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock guitar controller, our hardware team has once again proven themselves to be a world-class leader in the category delivering an awesome, top-quality and rocktastic controller that will be the musical weapon of choice for all budding rock stars this fall.”
The Battle Axe controller below is an exclusive pre-order item currently only available to GAME stores in the United Kingdom.
