DJ Hero 2 due out this autumn

Free Gaga track for first game to celebrate.

Activision has announced that DJ Hero 2 will be released this autumn for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.

The sequel features a new "Empire" career mode, new multiplayer modes including DJ Battles, and vocal support for singing and rapping.

There are new social multiplayer game modes too, a Guitar Hero 5-style jump-in/jump-out Party Play mode, and a freestyle option.

Producer Deadmau5 has been drafted in as a new playable character, and Dr Dre, Chemical Brothers, Kanye West, Metallica, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and "over 85" other artists are among the more-than-70 mashups on the disc.

The game will be sold in several bundles - Party will include the game, two turntables and a microphone; Turntable will feature the game and a turntable; and the game will also be sold separately.

To celebrate the announcement, DJ Hero 1 owners on PS3 and 360 will be able to download a mashup of "Just Dance" by Gaga and Deadmau5's "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" from PSN and Xbox Live from 8th-14th June.

Look out for more on DJ Hero 2 during E3 next week.
