San Francisco, CA (May13, 2005) – Eidos (NASDAQ:EIDSY), one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced the hip hop savvy in-game soundtrack for 25 to Life. An urban third person action game, 25 to Life offers true cops and robbers gameplay with both a deep single player mode as well as full 8 vs. 8 online gameplay. This half of the official soundtrack offers contributions from some of hip-hop’s legendary artists, today’s hottest acts, and up and coming artists blazing new trails into the world of rap and hip-hop. The in-game soundtrack delivers a direction that exemplifies the sound of today’s urban youth.

"With the first half of the 25 to Life soundtrack we’re laying down the law with a selection of artists that are recognized as some of the most influential in the business,” says Kevin Gill, Soundtrack Supervisor at Eidos. ”It's a hand picked blend of banging tracks as well as exclusively created songs, all coming together to deliver an intense audio experience that compliments the raw nature of the game."

Officers of law enforcement have their sound defined in this first half of the 25 to Life soundtrack.
