“Dream On” was the first major hit for the rock band Aerosmith, appearing on their debut self-titled album in 1973. And now, avid Guitar Hero™ III: Legends of Rock players will be able to try out their chops on the power ballad, by downloading it free of charge from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace. The song track will be free for a limited time only: Saturday, February 16, 2 A.M. PT (approximately) to Monday, February 18, 2 A.M. PT (approximately).
So… if you are not firing up your newsreader over the weekend, you are too late 😉 I LOVE LOVE LOVE Guitar Hero (and Rock Band for that matter), and am downloading this as we speak. The free download is a promo for the upcoming Guitar Hero®: Aerosmith® game.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will be the first music-based game to feature a single band, and gamers will be able to experience Aerosmith’s GRAMMY® winning career, from their first gig to becoming rock royalty.
Alright… you can tell by the number of ® and ™s in this post that I copied liberally from the press release. I hate it when people do that 😉 The press release does include a quote from Steve Tyler with a few words that I probably wouldn’t repeat to my kids, so go check it out.
I wasn’t able to find out a whole lot about the game itself at its website, other than the fact that you can preorder it. It will probably have an animated guy with a big mouth, Joe Perry, and some rockin’ tunes. I wonder if Liv Tyler will show up at all 😉
