    Latest Official 25 to Life Press Release


    2Pac, KRS-ONE, Geto Boys, Xzibit, Public Enemy, Ghostface Killah And Other Cutting Edge Artists To Be Featured In First Half Of Driving Hip Hop Soundtrack

    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. Hip hop’s heaviest hitters have been compiled to create an authentic music experience for gamers and music enthusiasts alike. The voice of the urban youth is what Hip-Hop has always been about. By artists tackling the hard topics head on and not being afraid to bring the gritty nature of street life to the people direct from the source, the message has remained consistent. The sound of 25 to Life looks to encapsulate that philosophy, and deliver it in an exciting new medium. The following is the list of confirmed artists lending their talents to the first half of the official in-game soundtrack:

    Not what I wanted to read...

    "Summer of 2005"

    How about a press release with an actual release date in it?

    The music in the game is cool and all, but are we ever going to get this game?

    if they threw in ICP, i would have to play it with mute on all the time... you never know when someone will turn on a boombox near you with that horrible excuse for rap blaring...
