Fantastic Four Xbox Game Soundtrack

For the first time ever, four popular bands have written and recorded original tracks specifically for the lead characters in a video game. The songs will debut in four character-specific trailers that will be released online in April and May, and will be included as unlockable bonus content in Activision, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) upcoming Fantastic Four game, which is slated to ship this summer. The songs echo the distinctive personalities and special powers of each of the Fantastic Four Super Heroes. Chart topping modern rock band, Taking Back Sunday, lead the team with "Error Operator" for Mr. Fantastic; hip-hop veterans, Jurassic 5, rock out "Clobberin’ Time" for The Thing; punk-rock up-and-comers, The Explosion, light up "I’m on Fire" for The Human Torch; and all-girl punkers, Go Betty Go, blast out the cerebral tour de force "Everywhere" for The Invisible Woman. "Creating four unique character-driven songs and music video-like trailers is a whole new approach at integrating music into games," said Tim Riley, worldwide executive of music, Activision, Inc. "This project underscores our strategy to use artists that are aligned with the content and feel of our titles, further enhancing the overall sensory experience for players. The Fantastic Four game also will feature the signature musical theme from the film’s score, which was composed by John Ottman, whose credits include X2: X-Men United and The Usual Suspects." This is the only game based on Twentieth Century Fox’s upcoming feature film. Fantastic Four game players will be able to harness the Marvel Super Heroes’ unique and amazing powers through a compelling single-player or two-player co-operative team based gameplay experience. Authored by Zak Penn, who co-wrote the story for X2, the game follows the Fantastic Four film’s storyline and expands the adventures by letting players stretch, control fire and use invisibility and brute force to defeat evil Super Villains in new environments and familiar comic book locales. Challenged to master the individual powers of each Super Hero and combine them to level even more devastating attacks, players must battle some of Marvel’s most notorious Super Villains, including, the ultimate evil -- Doctor Doom -- to save the human race from disaster. Fantastic Four is being developed by Seven Studios for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo; GameCube. The PC version is being developed by Beenox Studios and Torus Games is developing Fantastic Four for the Game Boy® Advance. The PC and console games are rated "T" (Teen -- with mild language and violence) by the ESRB and the Game Boy Advance title is rated "E-10+" for (Everyone 10 and older with violence). Fantastic Four opens in theaters nationwide on July 8th.
