LOS ANGELES (August 22, 2006) – Vivendi Games’
Sierra Entertainment division has signed some of the
biggest music artists from the 1980s to headline the
in-game soundtrack for the Scarface: The
World Is
Yours video game. Popular 1980s acts like
Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC, Judas Priest and Debbie
Harry have included songs in the game alongside the
entire original motion picture score by Giorgio
Moroder and songs from the original motion picture
soundtrack to create the ultimate Scarface music mix.

The game will also include several tracks from some
of today’s hottest music artists. Information
regarding contemporary music included in the game
will be released at a later date. The video game is
being developed by Radical Entertainment, a Sierra
Entertainment studio, through a licensing agreement
with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.

Scarface: The World Is Yours will
change the way
gamers listen to music in-game by allowing players to
customize their music experience through an
innovative new “Mix Tape” feature. Gamers will be
able to tailor their own soundtracks to their
preference in a variety of different ways.

“Throughout the development process we have
focused on giving the player the power to choose
their own in-game music experience, whether it be
the Scarface purist that wants only
the film score,
the player that wants authentic music from the time
period or the fan that craves the hottest tracks from
today’s talent,” said Cindy Cook, chief strategy and
marketing officer for Vivendi Games. “We are able to
offer this choice through our new ‘Mix Tape’ music
mixer and an incredible lineup of 1980s and
contemporary artists that are bringing their hits to
the game. Generations of film fans and gamers will
be able to create an experience that best suits their
unique tastes.”

In-game music will be playable throughout the game,
whether Tony Montana is driving a car, walking down
the street, in a boat chase or even while engaged in
a shootout. A selection of songs will be available to
the player at the start of the game, while others can
be unlocked upon completing missions, found
throughout the game world or purchased through the
game’s “Exotics Catalog,” which allows players to
indulge in the lavish lifestyle of Tony Montana by
offering a vast array of items for purchase including
décor for the mansion, rare vehicles, hirelings and
weaponry upgrades.

About the 1980s Music Lineup
Some of the biggest names from the 1980s music
scene across many genres have lent songs to the
game. A partial list of music from the film’s 80’s time

About the “Mix Tape” Music Player
Revolutionizing the way music can be heard in an
open-world game, the “Mix Tape” feature allows

creating custom cassettes, 1980s-style.

recreate an authentic Scarface film
experience; a
player looking to accurately immerse themselves in
time period can choose to play only music from the
1980s; fans of modern music, hoping to hear today’s
best hip-hop, rock and reggaeton, will be able to
select to play contemporary music; those looking for
more a more eclectic mix can simply choose their
favorite songs for a varied musical experience.

Gamers will also be able to select from pre-made
mixes by genre and time period, including reggae,
pop, hip-hop, Latin, reggaeton and country.
