Vivendi Universal Games announced today the epic film that transcends generations and appeals to contemporary and urban audiences alike, Scarface, is now coming for the first time to game consoles worldwide. In a complex world filled with excess and greed, players can take the role of Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film. Developed by Radical Games and published by Vivendi Universal Games, this third person action shooter is expected to ship Autumn 2005.

 

"The treacherous world of Scarface is a natural property to translate into a cinematic game play experience," said Michael Pole, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Studios for Vivendi Universal Games. "The game will feature cutting-edge technology, a compelling storyline and the unprecedented experience of playing as one of Hollywood's most notorious gangsters, Tony Montana."

 

"Scarface was a landmark film and has inspired countless movies and games," said Bill Kispert, vice president of Interactive at Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. "Having the chance to now bring gamers the authentic experience is an opportunity and challenge we are looking forward to."

 

Highly acclaimed screenwriter, David McKenna, has written an original event-driven storyline for the interactive game that will lead the player through a sordid underworld. The Scarface video game will create a gameplay environment that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, touching on politics, news items and events of the day. Players will travel through the steamy, often violent streets of Miami, the irie islands of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and various other locales and will interact with a world full of seedy and dangerous characters to procure information, negotiate business deals, smuggle contraband and avoid rivals and DEA on a mission to rebuild their fallen empire.

 

This is going to be an awesome game if it's made correctly. :)

It'll only be good if they get Tony Montana's voice right. And Al Pacino is way too cool to lend his voice for a game which will most probably ruin the Scarface name. :) But this game will be a rapper's delight. ^_^

I dunno about that...don't forget that Ray Liotta was Tommy Vercetti in GTA:VC.

vivendi universal has yet to make a game recently that kicks any form of ass. chronicles of riddick was not what it was cracked up to be like everyone else seems to think. that thing had so many jaggies in it it was almost painful to watch any cutscenes. they have a nice line up of games coming out soon so maybe this one will be ok. a couple of games to look out for from then is red ninja and men of valor. those 2 look very promising
