From Thursday July 9 – Sunday July 12, any attendee with a valid badge to San Diego Comic Con can attend the Xbox Lounge in the Manchester Grand Hyatt where FreeStyleGames will be showing off Hero Powers in Guitar Hero Live. Hero Powers can be used in GHTV to give you power-ups that affect different areas of gameplay. You can activate a Hero Power to boost your score while playing solo, or to give you a competitive edge during multiplayer.
As you play the game, you constantly earn in-game currency, which you can then use to acquire various Hero Powers. Before you play a song in GHTV, you’ll have the option to choose which Hero Power you’d like to have equipped during the duration of that song for you to activate whenever you want.
Clear Highway – Removes all immediate notes from your note highway instantly. The notes are
counted as hits, which adds to your score, score streak and score multiplier.
Double Multiplier – Your score multiplier will double for the duration of the Hero Power.
Dial Down – Temporarily reduces the frequency of notes that appear in the note highway. This is especially effective during difficult portions of the song to maintain a big score multiplier.
Dial Up – Temporarily increases the frequency of notes that appear in the note highway,therefore giving you a chance to increase your score.
Score Chaser – Maximum score multiplier is temporarily doubled.
Safety Net – Holds your multiplier and score streak at its current value.
Invincibility – Temporarily hits all notes, and missing notes do not register.
