ASPYR MEDIA ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH ACTIVISION TO
BRING GUITAR HERO III: LEGENDS OF ROCK TO PC AND MAC
AUSTIN, TX Sept. 11, 2007 The rock gods have spoken, and gamers around the
world will now be able to unleash their inner-rock star on two brand new
platforms. Aspyr Media, in partnership with Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI),
today announced that the third iteration of the wildly popular Guitar Hero
franchise, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, will be available to PC and Mac
gamers for the first time ever this fall.
Being developed and published exclusively by Aspyr, the PC and Mac versions will
match their console counterparts with explosive new content and features
including a multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, grueling boss battles, a
host of exclusive unlockable content and visually stunning rock venues. With
more than 70 songs in the set list, and more original master tracks than ever
before, players will be able to shred from many of the freshest and hottest
artists today, along with many of the most popular rock songs ever recorded.
Expanded online multiplayer game modes will also allow PC and Mac enthusiasts to
rip head-to-head against players around the world and across either platform,
raising the level of competition for true legendary rock status.
"Working with such a wildly successful franchise and helping to strengthen an
already powerful brand has us feeling like rock stars ourselves, only without
the fame, money or musical talent," said Ted Staloch, Executive Vice President,
Publishing for Aspyr. "But even without Slashšs chops, we still have what it
takes to bring the best music game on the planet to PC and Mac gamers. Aspyršs
expertise in developing and publishing for these platforms means that we will
deliver a game that wails just as hard as it does on consoles but feels natural
on this audiencešs chosen platform."
"Providing the option for our fans to play Guitar Hero at their desk or on a
laptop on the go is incredibly exciting, and wešre thrilled to now offer the
ability to rock out literally anywhere and everywhere," said Dusty Welch, head
of publishing at RedOctane. "PC and Mac gamers can now shred as hard as their
console counterparts do, and itšs a great opportunity to help promote
musicianship and expand the growing number of Guitar Hero fans worldwide."
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on PC and Mac is rated T for Teen by the ESRB,
and will be available this fall. For more information, please visit
