Some tuneful acquisitions on Fox's part.

Fox Interactive's PC and PlayStation title Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas, the follow-up to the first Die Hard Trilogy game, is now in stores. The game's soundtrack includes music from a variety of new hip-hop artists and electronica musician Brian Transeau, also known as BT.

With U.S. game soundtracks becoming increasingly more popular as separate entities unto themselves, many new artists are looking at the medium as a way to expand their audience outreach. DHT2 includes tracks from new artists such as Lil' Zane, Black Rob, Fuzzbubble and a song by Tony Touch featuring Heltah Skeltah and Starang Wonder (and no, there are not any typos in the spelling of those names).

BT wrote, arranged and recorded the game's original instrumental score, combining aspects of progressive house and breakbeat with drums and bass. BT has worked with Tori Amos, scored the movie Go and contributed to the soundtrack for the upcoming movie Under Suspicion.

Whether or not the soundtrack adds or detracts from the overall enjoyment of the game will soon be known, as we expect a copy of the game for review any day now.
