Microsoft’s released the full list of music you’ll hear when you buy Crackdown 2 next week, as well as announcing a partnership between the game and the XBLA version of Perfect Dark.

R.E.M is also on the list, as are Bob Dylan and Blue Oyster Cult, although you’ll get remixes from them too. The rest are all artists we haven’t really heard of, if we’re honest.

There will be some more remixes and original stuff in the game that’ll feature with the music above.

You can get the full list of who’s on the soundtrack at Joystiq.

Perfect Dark collaboration announced

The soundtrack announcement isn’t the only one for Crackdown 2 today: Microsoft’s confirmed a an Easter egg between CD2 and Rare’s XBLA title Perfect Dark.

If your 360 picks up a CD2 save file, you will automatically unlock a character for Perfect Dark’s multiplayer modes, known as Agent 4.

There’s more details here. Get reading, Agent.

Crackdown 2 releases on Tuesday in the US for Xbox 360, while it launches here in the UK next Friday.

The demo for the Ruffian sequel becomes a Sadistic bastard today.
