Aerosmith will feature in the new Guitar Hero game.

The game is released this summer and will include 30 Aerosmith songs.

Activision Inc who make the game told Billboard that: “It’s just a completely new way to interact with this music and with Aerosmith, and we think there’s more opportunity to do that in the future.”

They went on to explain that ‘Guitar Hero: Aerosmith’ is “going to cover the 30-plus years of the band, from high school all the way through the rock superstardom of today”.
