DJ Hero 2 Set For Fall: New Modes And More Immersion
The original turned out to be one of those spin-offs that both critics and gamers just adored.
That's why the sequel is a done deal: this fall, DJ Hero 2 will pick up where the #1 new game IP of 2009 left off. Titles from the biggest artists in the hip hop, dance, and pop genres will be featured: Dr. Dre, The Chemical Brothers, Kanye West, Metallica, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and over 85 more will turn your living rooms into veritable dance clubs. The developers are also tossing in some "all-new social multiplayer game modes," too, like innovative freestyle gameplay that will give you the ability to "crossfade, scratch and sample in over 70 speaker-blowing mashups." Furthermore, owners of the first game will be able to play with a mix of tracks from the sequel as DLC; the mix includes Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" mixed with the inspiring beats of Deadmau5's "Ghosts 'n' Stuff." This DLC will be available for free between June 8 and June 14 on either the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Marketplace. Said David Haddad, Chief Operating Officer for the game:
"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. 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."
With DJ Battles and the option to toss vocalists into the mix with the Party Play mode, along with a "heightened level of creative input" for the ultimate in personal creative freedom, DJ Hero 2 ought to be another big hit. And who doesn't want to try the new Empire Mode, which is basically a career mode where you start out as nothing and work to become the hottest DJ on the planet...?
