It’s About to Get Real
Guitar Hero Live is here. FreeStyleGames have reinvented the legendary Guitar Hero franchise, with two innovative new gameplay modes and an all-new guitar controller.
GH Live mode puts you onstage, looking out: you get a heart-stopping first-person perspective as a real crowd reacts to the notes you play. Or switch over to GHTV – a playable music video network, where you can play along in real time, discover new music, and challenge friends around the world.
YOU are the rock star
Playing music in front of a real crowd is like no other experience. With the new GH Live first-person view, YOU’LL take center stage like never before.
Rock real crowds with real reactions
Feel the rush of performing in a REAL band, in front of REAL crowds who react in REAL time to your performance. You’ll either win the crowd or lose them. Plus, your band mates will also let you know if you’re rocking out or need to pick it up. Fight the stage fright and bring down the house.
Awesome music, epic venues
In GH Live, you’ll take the stage in a variety of venues. Experience it all from the intimacy of a small club or the main stage of a massive outdoor festival.
All playable, all the time
GHTV is a continuous broadcast of music videos where you and your guitar controller are the star. Hundreds of videos will be available at launch spanning all different genres of music, with new videos continually added to the line-up. You’ll be able to discover and play new songs all the time.
Play what you want
Turning on GHTV is similar to turning on your regular TV. Pick a channel and dive right in. Don’t like what’s on? Just switch over to another channel and play a new song. You’ll earn in-game currency in GHTV that you can use to play songs on demand or to acquire a ton of different items in the game like custom note highways, playercards and more.
Rock out with friends
GHTV makes it more fun to play with your friends than ever. While one person is playing, everyone else can watch the videos. Plus, GHTV delivers exciting competition, no matter your skill level. Compete in your living room or online with people from all over the world, playing at similar progression levels and difficulty as you. Check out the leaderboards to see how you stack up against fellow rock stars around the world.
Level up and earn rewards
Level up to unlock more content and achieve Hero status. Along the way you’ll earn the use of new Hero Powers and you can level up your guitar. Hero Powers, similar to Star Power back in the day, can be used to gain a competitive edge and achieve new high scores.
Premium Shows include anything from new music videos in GHTV to live concert footage that you can play along to. Get access to this content by leveling up and completing challenges, or use real currency to play instantly.
Customer your experience
In GHTV you will have access to unique personalization items. Customize your note highway and playercard to show off your style.
New Controller Features
More real than ever
The guitar controller has been updated to reflect the new style and realism of Guitar Hero Live.
All new button layout
The new 2x3 button layout creates the feeling of switching between strings and provides an enhanced experience when playing chords.
Classic strum bar
Why mess with perfection? The strum bar you know and love is back in all its glory.
Next level Hero Powers
Use the guitar’s tilt sensor or the new Hero Power button to activate one of the many newly available Hero powers.
Return of the whammy
The classic whammy bar makes a triumphant return, to help you show off your flair.
Direct access to GHTV
The GHTV button lets you jump straight into GHTV from anywhere in the game.
THE GUITAR CONTROLLER
Easier to play, harder to master
The guitar controller was redesigned for the best gameplay across all skill levels. The new 2x3 button layout makes it easier to play with only three buttons, or, on veteran, it starts mirrors what it’s like to play chord shapes with all six buttons, making the game easier for beginners and harder for experts.
Unleash your inner rock star. Guitar Hero Live is here. FreeStyleGames have reinvented the legendary Guitar Hero franchise, with two innovative new gameplay modes and an all-new guitar controller. GH Live mode puts you onstage, looking out: you get a heart-stopping first-person perspective as a real crowd reacts to the notes you play.

If like me, you’re stuck at the ‘Press Any Button On Guitar Controller’ screen then use the following steps to fix it:
1.Disable the Internet on your PS4. (It’s in Settings > Network > Internet, just uncheck it.)
2.Go back into Guitar Hero Live. Problem solved. If not, try method two.
1.Turn off your PS4. Do not turn it on using your controller. Turn on the console using the button on the console itself.
2.Navigate to open Guitar Hero Live using the Guitar controller. The small knob can be tilted in all directions to move the cursor and you can press X by pressing button 1 on the guitar controller.
The game offers a live (career) mode, where you play through pre-made setlists as the guitarist to your band and watch live reactions of the crowd as you play. Their mood changes drastically as you play, whether that be a good or bad thing. It's a breath of fresh air instead of the cartoon character models.
The other mode is a new feature to Guitar Hero called GHTV. It is basically a live radio that offers a couple channels for everybody to join in and play along with, tracking your high score vs other players and letting you earn EXP and gold to buy cool new things like different power ups, chart skins, and player cards. You also can buy "plays" to specifically choose songs out of the entirety of the GHTV playlist that YOU would like to play right away, instead of waiting for the radio to play it. You do have limited plays when it comes to this, and this is where Guitar Hero Live gets a bit iffy. It offers micro-transactions to buy more plays, or a "24 hour access pass" to the playlist where you can choose the songs you'd like to play for $5.99. This can really put off some players, myself included. The idea of paying for stuff like this after already paying 60 for the game and 40 for the guitar is obscene. However, you do NOT have to pay for this, and can very easily earn in-game gold by playing songs through the live radio rotation, and then buying your plays through that gold instead of real money. You can also earn plays by leveling up and doing premium playlists (higher level content). It is fair, in my opinion, but a cheap way to earn some extra money from Activision. Overall, I think the mode is definitely unique and interesting, and I'm assuming over time they will continue to add more songs into the library, offer more free channels that rotate to play on, and likely have DLC for new songs, however that make work with this GHTV system.
Husband especially loves the game and all the new changes.
The quality of this game is great and I love the lack of animated bands and audience, replacing them with real people. Makes watching someone else play (while waiting for your turn) a lot more entertaining.
I saw this was on sale, so I bought it since it seemed a good deal.
I liked the live-action show while playing. I liked GHTV and how you could play DLC songs virtually free. In fact, most of the content... I liked. Now what I DIDN'T like, was unfortunately the controller. The button layout was uncomfortable for my hands. I have been playing Guitar Hero/Rock Band since the first, and the in-line 5 button worked rather well in my opinion. The new layout for this though, just does not feel right to me. It almost hurts to hit some of the chords. If somehow the in-lines were compatible, I would most definitely start playing this again.
