Guitar Hero returns with another band-focused title, Guitar Hero Van Halen. The game features 25 classic Van Halen tracks, three signature Eddie Van Halen guitar solos, and 19 hand-picked guest acts.
Play in eight original venues specifically designed for Guitar Hero Van Halen. Rock around the globe, from a small club in Los Angeles to arenas around the world, including the iconic “S-stage” from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers’ 2007 world tour.
Play as one of the four members of Van Halen or create your own personalized rocker with Rock Star Creator and watch your superstar party on stage.
Rock out with up to four players locally or battle other bands with up to 8 players.
With tracks ranging from the high-energy “Jump” to the legendary guitar solo “Eruption,” the easy-to-play, difficult-to-master game play that Guitar Hero fans have grown to love is back in Guitar Hero Van Halen.
