July 17, 2008 Metallica fans will be able to rock out to new anthems from the band in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock with Metallica’s highly-anticipated full studio album, “Death Magnetic,” to be available simultaneously in record stores and as downloadable content for the game. Lounge room rockers will be able to unite on drums, guitar and vocals when the album and game content is released in September. The downloadable content will also be available for Guitar Hero World Tour when it ships this Fall. Mike Griffith, president and CEO of Activision Publishing also said that Guitar Hero World Tour will, “deliver unprecedented innovation to the rhythm-based genre with new instruments, a significantly expanded song list, and a music creator to share user-generated soundtracks.”

Activision has also confirmed its upcoming fall 2008 game lineup will include Call of Duty: World at War, Quantum of Solace and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. In addition, the company announced that it is currently in development on Wolfenstein, from id Software; Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2: Fusion by Vicarious Visions; Singularity (Working Title), from Raven Software; a Luxoflux game based on “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”; and a title based on Twentieth Century Fox/Marvel’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in development at Raven Software.
