What?
To celebrate the long-awaited European release of Guitar Hero® 5, the latest entry in the phenomenally successful music game franchise, countries across Europe are competing to set a new Guinness World Records recognised achievement for the largest number of participants to play in a single Guitar Hero session over a 24-hour period.

Pitting all the European nations against one another, the record attempt that is now running was launched by British singer-songwriter Pixie Lott and utilises Guitar Hero 5’s innovative new Party Play Mode, which allows players to jump in or drop out, or switch difficulty level at any time without interrupting the jam session. With record attempts taking place simultaneously in cities across the continent, old rivalries are sure to rear their heads as each country battles to claim the Guinness World Records recognised achievement and be crowned champion!
