Guitar Hero Live is due out in just a couple of weeks time, but as is customary these days, the achievements for the game have been posted online. No surprises there, then.
What is a little surprising, and perhaps a bit off-putting for some, is that the game’s cheevos aren’t exactly evenly split between offline and online play. Of the fifty achievements up for grabs, more than half are for playing with Guitar Hero TV, which as we all know isn’t going to be free – at least not totally.
Instead of going the traditional route with Guitar Hero Live’s extra content, Activision has chosen to push new songs via Guitar Hero TV. For trophy and achievement hunters this will come as a bit as you may find yourself stuck without a trophy unless you decide to take your game online. The good news is that none of the achievements seem to be locked behind a paywall, so that’s something.
Of the fifty achievements, we counted that 33 are linked to Guitar Hero TV’s service. Make of that what you will.
Guitar Hero Live launches on PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360 this October 20th.
