GH5 supports Xbox Live Avatars

Deck them out in thumping threads.

Activision has revealed that Guitar Hero 5 will support Xbox Live Avatars as playable characters.

And so they don't look out of place, Avatars can be decked out in Guitar Hero clothing and accessories in Create-A-Rocker mode. Whether they can keep those clothes on outside of the game we do not know.

A video of Xbox Live Avatars in Guitar Hero 5 is now showing on Eurogamer TV.

Guitar Hero 5 will be released on 18th September for PS2, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360. Check out our gamepage below for impressions, a full track listing and plenty of videos and screenshots.
