Activision has lifted on the lid on three new "Hero" games coming this autumn, including the much talked-about DJ Hero.

We first heard about the DJ addition to Activision's Hero line-up last year, and now it's gone official, complete with its rumoured turntable controller. Players will be able to get all Tim Westwood with music genres including hip-hop, R&B and motown, as well as electronica and dance.

It's not quite clear how the turntable controller will work with the game, but we're told that once you're on the decks, you'll be creating original mixes of popular songs rather than following a track, like you do with Guitar Hero.

Aside from DJ Hero, Activision has also outed details on Guitar Hero 5 which will see players getting more control than ever over the way they play the game. You'll be able to drop in and out of songs when you fancy, as well as change band members, instruments and difficulty levels on the fly.

Finally, we've also been dished out a few deets on the new Band Hero, which has been designed with a family audience in mind. It will feature top-40 hits and a set up of guitar, drums, bass and microphone.

We've been given no details on prices or exact release dates but we'll keep you up to date with anything we hear. Until then, get to grips with our review of Guitar Hero World Tour.
