Guitar Hero Live has received a whole new competitive element with the addition of Rival Challenges.
This is now available via the GHTV channels. Creative director Jamie Jackson explains, "As you play through the channels, you will periodically be matched up against a similar-skilled opponent to square off, 1-on-1 style, in a song battle to test your skills."
Rival Challenges become unlocked once you reach level 10. The developer says that this was implemented because at this point you have access to Guitar Upgrades and Hero Powers.
In a half hour show, you'll get two Rival Challenges. The song is chosen by the game and the victor walks away with an extra +100 Status XP.
Jackson also revealed that there are some holiday-themed shows coming up in GHTV. "Keep an eye out for some awesome playable Christmas favourites coming your way," he said.
