Linkin Park to Rock DJ Hero 2 for the Holidays

Linkin Park may not be much now if you’re not a Transformers fan, but for a few good years they were on top of the world. Activision is looking to rekindle some of that juice as the publisher announced today that three new tracks are available for DJ Hero 2 from the rock-rap group:

Linkin Park are no strangers to the remix realm, having collaborated on crossover tracks with everyone from hip-hop icon JAY-Z to world-renowned DJ Hero remixer and consultant Z-Trip. Now, two Linkin Park tracks off of their 2010 number one selling album A Thousand Suns have received the exclusive DJ Hero remix treatment as downloadable content for DJ Hero 2, including “The Catalyst (Does It Offend You, Yeah? Remix)” and a mashup of “When They Come For Me” by legendary turntablist, producer and DJ Hero alumni, Diplo. Rounding out the three track Linkin Park Mix Pack, is a mashup of “Pts.OF.Athrty” from the band’s 2002 remix album, Reanimation.

The Linkin Park Mix Pack for DJ Hero 2 will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 640 Microsoft Points; and on the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system for $7.99. All mixes will be released as downloadable singles for Wii for 300 Wii Points.
