We have two new videos from Activision showcasing the upcoming Guitar Hero World Tour, currently scheduled for a New Zealand release on November 13th this year.

The latest instalment in the best-selling music/rhythm video game franchise, Guitar Hero World Tour transforms music gaming by expanding Guitar Hero’s signature guitar gameplay into a cooperative band experience that combines the most advanced wireless instruments with new revolutionary online and offline gameplay modes including online Band Career and 8-player “Battle of the Bands,” which allows two full bands to compete head-to-head online for the first time ever.

The game features a slick newly redesigned guitar, an authentic electronic drum kit and a microphone, as well as an innovative Music Studio music creator that lets players compose, record, edit and share their own rock ‘n’ roll anthems.

We got to play Guitar Hero World Tour today at Activision's Activate event in central Auckland, and will be bringing you a hands-on preview shortly. In the meantime, check out the two videos at GP Downloads here (46MB) and here (78MB).
