According to the latest issue of Game Informer, VAN HALEN, THE EAGLES, LINKIN PARK and SUBLIME have been confirmed for the fourth installment of the Guitar Hero video game, with developer Neversoft confirming master tracks shall be used for all available songs.
Aside from the special-editions of Guitar Hero III, the true successor will have some funky new additions including custom song creation and support for multiple instruments, reports C3 News.
Guitar Hero IV, due for release this fall, is said to include drum and vocal work (much like EA's Rock Band effort), alongside the expected Bass and Guitar. It's currently unknown if Rock Band's periperals will be supported, or whole new set will be on offer. As for song creation, players can mock up their work (excluding vocals), artwork, and upload their creations to the world. There'll initially be a five-song limit, but this is likely to change.
