Rockers and geekrockers alike are at the edge of their gaming seats awaiting the release of this game. It’s the first time ever that a game will be based on this San Francisco-based heavy metal rock legend, Metallica. The game is set to be released on March 29, 2009. But good thing we’re geekie enough to pre-order this item here. It’s available for Playstation3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii.
For hardcore Metallica fans, it’s high time you get your Rock Band gear to bang it out like your favorite heavy metal idols. Here’s some interesting tidbits to get you started on your Metallica rock-out session:
- Original bassist, Cliff Burton (died in 1989 in a bus accident), is not included in the game. Current bassist Rob Trujillo, is the one present. But Cliff’s bass-lines can be found in Rock Band: Metallica.
- Rob Trujillo’s braids were also hooked up for motion capture during the game’s development.
- The song “Slayer” is not included in the game due to lyrics controversy.
- A second-bass pedal will be released for sale along with the game.
Gear up for a heavy Metallica rock-out session next month. In the meantime, here’s the official trailer to ogle before the big release day arrives.
