It’s almost time to rock out. “BandFuse: Rock Legends” is on its way to PS3 and Xbox 360 in just a few weeks, but the folks behind the game aren’t waiting until release day to let everyone know how the game will help turn them into real life musicians.
That’s why the game just got a brand new website that the developers are calling a “social portal” to educate people about everything “BandFuse.” The site features trailers, gameplay videos, artist channels, song lists, forums, and a whole bunch more, and you can see it all for yourself at BandFuse.com.
Unlike games from the “Guitar Hero” and “Rock Band” days, “BandFuse: Rock Legends” allows players to plug in real instruments and learn how to play them using 55 songs from a variety of artists. It can support two guitars, a bass, and a microphone for the vocalist thanks to an included USB adapter that plugs right into a PS3 or Xbox 360. A variety of game modes can accomodate beginners as well as experienced musicians, and the “Rock Legends” part of the name comes from stars like Slash, Zakk Wylde, and Bootsy Collins who help guide players through the process.
Pre-orders through GameStop also come with a coupon for $15 off any Fender or Squier electric guitar at Guitar Center, helping out a little if you don’t already own your own axe. “BandFuse: Rock Legends” is set for North American release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 19, with a release date for Europe to be announced soon.
