Even I couldn’t have predicted this one. On a Rush exclusive game? Sure. On a basic entry? Not at all. Still, if Neversoft truly is going for the epic classics it really doesn’t get much more epic than 2112.
According to this news post from AltSounds Rush’s 1976 progressive rock epic 2112, which consist of 7 fully featured suites, will be making it’s way onto the disc of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.
If I were a skeptic I would assume it was a typo and meant Guitar Hero 5 DLC as the post does read “Guitar Hero 6,” not Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. However it does specify the game as releasing “this autumn.” So it looks like we can expect a near 21 minute epic for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock this fall.
How’s this going to work? Well arguably it could get broken up into suites (the longest suite is only 4:33) but my money is on Neversoft going all out. Remember we did get Peter Frampton’s live version of Do You Feel Like We Do? which was almost 14 minutes long last year in Guitar Hero 5.
