Rumortoid: Survey leaks celebs and artists info for Guitar Hero: World Tour

2:54 PM on 06.28.2008 // Nick Chester

Are there no secrets? A recent survey on Guitar Hero: World Tour leaked to Kotaku has dropped a bomb of information on some celebrities and artists that may appear in the game when it hits shelves later this year. 

According to the survey, songs by artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, System of a Down, Ozzy Osbourne, Interpol, Muse, and Tool will appear in the title. Additionally, the survey mentions that multiple songs by single artists along with dedicated venues are a possibility. But it doesn't stop there -- in addition to being able to create your own rockers, the game may also include playable characters like Sting, Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, Jimi Hendrix, Travis Baker, Paramore's Hayley Williams, Zak Wylde, and the previously rumored Billy Corgan. 

I'm exhausted just writing about this stuff; it's clear that Activision is going balls-to-the-wall when it comes to picking up high-profile, recognizable artists and songs for World Tour. Activision's obvious push to capitalize on the mainstream success of the Guitar Hero franchise doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. If these leaks turn out to be legit (and all signs really seem to point to "yes"), it's hard to imagine World Tour not being a blockbuster this Fall. 

The full text of the survey can be found after the jump. Also, don't miss parts one and two of our first-look preview of Guitar Hero: World Tour.

In this new Guitar Hero game, join up with your band mates to form the ultimate super group and rock your way to the top. Shred on lead, rhythm, or bass guitar (three options on one guitar controller), rip on drums, or belt it out on the mic as you rock together on the greatest classic, modern, alternative, pop, and metal hits. 85 songs by artists including Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Korn, System of a Down, Ozzy Osbourne, Interpol, Muse, Tool (at least three songs and a dedicated venue), and dozens more come together to form the coolest set list ever. You can even play as your favorite rock star, choosing from characters like Sting, Ozzy Osbourne, Ted Nugent, Billy Corgan, Jimi Hendrix, Travis Barker, Hayley Williams, and Zak Wylde. If none of these are your style, then you can create your own character, including character construction, instrument creation, band logos and album covers. Then take it to a whole new level by jumping into a fully-integrated recording studio to lay down, upload, and share custom tracks online – for virtually unlimited rock. This game features the most authentic instrument peripherals on the market, including an all-new wireless guitar controller with the first-ever touch-sensitive neck slide, dedicated Star Power button, and ability to palm-mute. Also, the new killer wireless drums have ultra-quiet pressure-sensitive pads, raised cymbals, and are easy to set up and take down. Or, use the microphone to become the ultimate frontman. This new Guitar Hero game lets you rock together and rock for all.

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
