When the party starts this October, virtual DJ's and MC's throughout the universe will fire up two turntable controllers and a microphone and mix it up with Tiësto – one of electronic music's defining artists, DJ's and producers – in DJ Hero® 2. Having worked with the likes of Muse, Justin Timberlake, Jónsi from Sigur Rós, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston and Three 6 Mafia, performed for billions of fans at the opening ceremonies of the Athens Olympics and headlined the Coachella and Bonnaroo music festivals among others, Tiësto has earned his status as the world's hottest DJ. The GRAMMY® Nominee will be spinning for a new audience as he takes to the virtual ones and twos, delivering a pair of pulse-pounding exclusive mixes and joining the ever-growing roster of playable characters, including Deadmau5, David Guetta, DJ Qbert and others. Tiësto is king, apparently.
"DJ Hero 2 is all about bringing people of different backgrounds, ages and music tastes together to have some fun DJ'ing their favorite music. The way the music comes together is fresh and unique and as a DJ, I couldn't ask for more than that,"said Tiësto. "I am excited to be involved with this medium and to be contributing to a great game with an amazing soundtrack."
Do you play DJ Hero? Is Activision overkilling it with too many music simulator games?
