Guitarist gets in on the game

Real guitar hero Carlos Santana is set for a key role in Guitar Hero 5, Activision confirm this morning.

Guitar Hero 5 is due out in time for Christmas, and it'll focussing on making the ultimate party game even more accessible to vast numbers of players, via a range of new gameplay modes.

As well as Santana's in-game visage, the title will offer one Santana classic: 'No one to depend on', from the 'Santana' album.

The publisher have already released some nice snapshots of the veteran rocker getting down in number five. More soon.
