Bill Brown to Produce Score for Wolfenstein
SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 12, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ — Activision Publishing (Nasdaq: ATVI) and id Software announced that Wolfenstein(TM) is set to feature an original score by award-winning composer, Bill Brown. Brown’s work has been featured in numerous feature films and television shows with credits, including: “Ali,” “Any Given Sunday,” “CSI: NY” and “Finding Forrester.” He previously also scored id’s hit Return to Castle Wolfenstein(R).
“Bill was the natural choice to create a soundtrack that emphasizes the fast-paced action of Wolfenstein while enhancing the overall mood during key moments and getting players fully immersed in the adventure,” says Kevin Cloud, executive producer at id Software. “Bill crafted the perfect soundtrack when we previously worked together on Return to Castle Wolfenstein and his experience and passion for the franchise will once again allow him to deliver an incredible score that draws the player deeper into the Wolfenstein universe.”
Wolfenstein is scheduled for release later this year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and is not yet rated.
Wolfenstein brings the Nazi’s dark obsession with the occult to life, by intertwining fast-paced, intense story-driven combat with a diverse sci-fi experience. As BJ Blazkowicz, a highly decorated member of the Office of Secret Actions (OSA), you are sent on a special mission into the heart of the Third Reich to investigate evidence that the SS hierarchy may possess a new and mysterious power.
