Aspyr Media -

Want to get in touch with your inner rock star but hate playing on a console, or maybe you're a hardcore PC gamer and don't even own a console?  Your wish will soon be granted as Aspyr Media and Activision, Inc. announced yesterday that Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is coming to the PC and Mac this fall for the first time ever.  Developed and published exclusively by Aspyr Media, the PC and Mac versions promise to mirror their console brethren by offering the same features such as a multi-player battle mode, boss battles, unlockable content and visually stunning venues just to name a few.

GH III offers a 70-plus song set list, allowing users to play songs from many of today's most current artists as well as some of the most popular songs from the past.  With an expanded multi-player game mode, the PC/Mac versions will allow players from either platform to go up against each other in head-to-head competition.  Not only that, but players with a laptop will now be able to play on the go.  Maybe its time to take your show on the road!

“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.”
