The next installment of the wildly popular Guitar Hero franchise will add wireless drums and vocals. Along with the expanded instruments, the guitar will be upgraded too, allowing for playing songs that use slide guitar.

Perhaps most exciting aspect of the new iteration is the ability for users to create and upload their own songs. With the inclusion of the Guitar Hero Music Studio users will finally be able to experience the thrill of rocking out to their own creative endeavors.

A battle mode has been added with the ability for 8 players to participate in a battle of the bands type of experience. Expect to see the level of competition increased as gamers keep trying to one-up each other in their own personal creations.

And for those that prefer rocking out to more, shall we say, established acts, Guitar Hero will include new tracks from Metallica and REM.
