Timbaland Partners with Rockstar Games for New Beaterator Game

As a top music producer, Timbaland has worked with a diverse array of artists.

The accomplished beatmaker can add another collaborator to his growing list, as he joins forces with Rockstar Games for the latest version of its Beaterator game.

"I've always been a huge fan of Rockstar and love playing their games," said Timbaland. "[I'm] thrilled to be partnering with them and making music for Beaterator. I cannot wait to get this in the hands of our fans!"

Developed by Rockstar Leeds for the PlaystationRPortable (PSPR) system, Beaterator is a music mixer with beatmaking features for a collection of original music and rhythm games and challenge modes.

Timbaland's association with Beaterator naturally builds more excitement for the game, according to Rockstar Games founder and executive producer Sam Houser.

"Having Timbaland involved in the game is a real honor. Music has always been a hugely important part of everything we do here," Houser said. "Two years ago, we launched a web-based version of Beaterator on our own website and people really embraced it. That inspired us to build and create something very interactive and unique."

Beaterator is expected to hit stores this summer.
