Tiesto is now in 2010 the official European ambassador for DJ Hero 2, Activision announced today.
In addition to appearing as a playable character in the sequel and contributing three tracks, Tiesto created two remixes for the game, featuring Adamski’s Killer and Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance.
Tiesto’s involvement as a spokesperson is part of developer FreeStyleGames’ attempt to make DJ Hero 2 more Euro-friendly, with a wider selection of pop and dance tracks than the original’s hiphop-heavy tracklisting.
Various FreeStyle staffers, including creative director Jamie Jackson and in-house scratch DJ Blakey, demoed final code of the sequel on stage, walking press through the process of creating mixes for the game and showing off new multiplayer features.
“It’s every child’s dream to actually be in a video game,” said Tiesto, who admitted to being a big FIFA fan. (while PES is better ;))
“Europe has always been at the forefront of new music and club culture, and it’s a great feeling to be a part of something that will bring the excitement of the world’s biggest clubs into people’s homes.”
