    Activision has announced that DJ Hero 2 will be hitting store shelves this fall.  There will be a host of all new social multiplayer game modes and freestyle gameplay giving virtual DJ’s the ability to crossfade, scratch and sample in over 70 speaker-blowing mashups from the hottest DJ’s and producers in the world, including Deadmau5 who will be starring as an in-game playable character.  The game will also feature an all-new career based Empire Mode where players start out as an up and coming DJ on the road to becoming the head of a major entertainment empire, all of which is founded solely on their success as a DJ.

    To help celebrate this announcement, DJ Hero owners all of their friends will have the opportunity to download, spin, scratch and battle a mix from DJ Hero 2 as downloadable content.  The mix features the sultry sounds of Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” mixed with the blistering beats of Deadmau5’s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff.”  The mix will be available for free from June 8-14 on XBox Live and the Playstation Network.

    “DJ Hero was the best music game of 2009 and with DJ Hero 2 we’re delivering a new easy to pick-up, challenging-to-master experience that all players can enjoy together,” said David Haddad, Chief Operating Office, Guitar Hero.  “With new social game modes, the inclusion of full microphone support, all-new levels of creative freedom and an amazing soundtrack, DJ Hero 2 is the ultimate mixer of music and friends.”

    “We’re improving upon all the gameplay elements from DJ Hero that gamers loved with the all-new freestyle gameplay and a host of new multiplayer game modes,” said Jamie Jackson, Creative Director, FreeStyleGames.  “But we’re not stopping there either as the award-winning soundtrack is getting bigger songs from hotter artists that our talented crew of DJ’s is spinning into hits that fit the gameplay flawlessly.”
