Activision has announced that Tiesto will join deadmau5, David Guetta and Q-Bert as a playable character in DJ Hero 2. Tiesto has already performed for every person on the planet (our fact checkers are looking into this claim) and he’s currently on the largest DJ-only tour ever conceived, so it’s only fair that he’s now been digitized, face-mapped and motion-captured for DJ Hero 2. In fact, Tiesto’s in-game avatar could fill more clubs with fist-pumping fans than your favorite DJ.
Set to hit stores this October for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, DJ Hero 2 will feature 80+ exclusive mixes of dance, pop and hip hop. The game also incorporates vocals and a new “Empire Mode” where you bring your up-and-coming DJ to the big leagues. Check out www.djhero.com for more info, videos and screenshots.
