Activision Blizzard has released rock music-charged rhythm game Guitar Hero Live for iOS. But it's not available everywhere yet.

You can get it in select countries including North America, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and some more. But it's not yet available in Europe - that includes the UK.

By the looks of it, the mobile version of Guitar Hero Live will be released alongside the console versions this Friday.

That's according to the game's UK site, where it's listed as coming out on October 23rd 2015.

The delayed release aside, Guitar Hero Live is free to download on the App Store but that only gets you two trial songs.

If you want the full game it'll cost you £39.99 / $49.99 for the digital touch version. Or you can purchase the guitar bundle online or from stores for £79.99 / $99.99 so you can strum a piece of plastic as you play.

In those full versions you get over 40 tracks and access to GHTV where another 200 songs are available (with more constantly being added).

The plastic guitar has also been through changes as it now how six buttons instead of the five it used to. It connects to your device via Bluetooth if you're wondering.

If you want to check it out, download Guitar Hero Live for free on the App Store if it's available in your country.

Oh, and make some room, as the damn thing is 2.02GB in size.
