Apsyr Announces Guitar Hero III Mac
7:10 AM | Tuncer Deniz | 29 comments

Aspyr Media, in partnership with Activision, today announced that the third iteration of the wildly popular Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, will be available to Mac and PC gamers for the first time ever this fall. Being developed and published exclusively by Aspyr, the PC and Mac versions will match their console counterparts with explosive new content and features including a multiplayer action-inspired battle mode, grueling boss battles, a host of exclusive unlockable content and visually stunning rock venues.

With more than 70 songs in the set list, and more original master
tracks than ever before, players will be able to shred from many of the
freshest and hottest artists today, along with many of the most popular rock
songs ever recorded. Expanded online multiplayer game modes will also allow
PC and Mac enthusiasts to rip head-to-head against players around the world
and across either platform, raising the level of competition for true
legendary rock status.

“Working with such a wildly successful franchise and helping to strengthen
an already powerful brand has us feeling like rock stars ourselves, only
without the fame, money or musical talent,” said Ted Staloch, Executive Vice
President, Publishing for Aspyr. “But even without Slash’s chops, we still
have what it takes to bring the best music game on the planet to PC and Mac
gamers. Aspyr’s expertise in developing and publishing for these platforms
means that we will deliver a game that wails just as hard as it does on
consoles but feels natural on this audience’s chosen platform.”

“Providing the option for our fans to play Guitar Hero at their desk or on a
laptop on the go is incredibly exciting, and we’re thrilled to now offer the
ability to rock out literally anywhere and everywhere,” said Dusty Welch,
head of publishing at RedOctane. “PC and Mac gamers can now shred as hard as
their console counterparts do, and it’s a great opportunity to help promote
musicianship and expand the growing number of Guitar Hero fans worldwide.”
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock on PC and Mac is rated T for Teen by the ESRB, and will be available this fall.
