According to 1up.com, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich and KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons are confirmed to appear in the Guitar Hero 6 game, which is tentatively due this holiday season. Simmons will narrate a brand new "Quest Mode," where players will "recruit" other rock stars and unlock their "song sets" along the way. You can also unlock the musician's "alter ego" (such as Lars becoming "Warrior Lars") which give you bonus powers, like x6 point multiplyers instead of x4. QUEEN, BLACK SABBATH and KISS will reportedly have songs in the game; which will also see the return of past (fictional) Guitar Hero characters; the ability to carry over previous DLC songs; the ability to sustain open bass notes; the legendary CBGB as the only real-world location in the game; and a few more intangible details like a supposedly "back-to-basics approach" and "much bigger focus on rock 'n' roll."
