Activision en Freestyle Games hebben sinds de lancering van Guitar Hero Live goede ondersteuning geboden. Dat is voor fanatieke spelers natuurlijk erg prettig en het ziet er niet naar uit dat dit op korte termijn stopt.

Dat is niet het enige wat we over Guitar Hero Live te melden hebben, ook is er een patch online gegaan voor onder andere de PlayStation 3 en 4 versie van de game. Deze patch voegt de Rivals Arena toe evenals maandelijkse seizoenen en verder worden er nog verschillende oneffenheden aangepakt. Alle details hieronder.

Rivals Arena

  • At Level 15, the Arena doors open for business
  • Two new Rival Challenge channels will launch
  • Monthly seasons will pit players against others as they rise up the Divisions to glory from Division 20 to Division 1
  • Win battles to move up Divisions and earn tokens
  • Bonus tokens will be awarded to those with winning streaks and to those playing consecutive matches
  • Rage quitting is punishable by death…. Or loss of tokens. Ragers will also get play against other ragers leading to a weird rage off thanks to new matchmaking tech
  • New seasons will use previous season data and status to determine starting Divisions and give returning players a head start
  • Season exclusive rewards can be won if players reach Division 15 and higher. This includes: exclusive player cards at Division 15, exclusive highways at Division 10 and a legendary-looking version of the player card for those reaching Division 1
