Rock out with your Avatar out in Guitar Hero 5 on Xbox 360

It looks like the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero 5 is getting its own little exclusive feature — “playable Xbox Avatars.”

Activision has announced today that the game will allow players to import their customized Avatars, choose an instrument, and watch them rock out behind those cascading note highways. Additionally, you’ll be able to further customize Avatars inside the game’s Create-a-Rocker mode. You know, in case that Fable II shirt you bought from the Avatar Marketplace isn’t quite doing it for you. 

Guitar Hero 5 ships on September 1. You can check out a trailer of the Avatars in action after the jump.
