True Crime: Streets of L.A. Rolls to Stores

True Crime: Streets of L.A. is available at retail stores nationwide and is available now for the PlayStation2, the Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube. Activision is supporting the game’s launch with a multi-million dollar marketing and advertising campaign that includes alliances with “The Source Hip Hop Music Awards 2003,” MTV2 and PUMA, as well as extensive print, in-theater, broadcast and online advertising that is expected to drive you insane by the time the holidays roll around.

“True Crime: Streets of L.A. delivers an in-depth storyline that will cast gamers as the lead character in a crime drama full of colorful characters, fast cars, explosive weapons and challenging enemies,” said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. “Using 240 square miles of L.A. as the backdrop for the action and a branching storyline full of unpredictable twists and turns, gamers are sure to be entertained and challenged each time they play.”

Developed by Luxoflux, True Crime: Streets of L.A. thrusts players into the role of rogue Elite Operations Division operative Nick Kang, a no-holds-barred badass, whose brutal reputation and lethal skills have landed him the nasty task of taking down the Chinese Triad and Russian Mafia cartel that have turned Los Angeles into a war zone. Gamers take part in explosive gun battles with double fisted firepower, devastating martial arts brawls, and high-speed shootouts on the streets of L.A. The game’s unique branching missions include locating hostile witnesses, infiltrating criminal-infested locations, taking out evasive informants and busting the heavily armed and deadly bad guys.

True Crime: Streets of L.A. features an all-star voice cast of top Hollywood talent including Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman, Michael Madsen, Russell Wong, Michelle Rodriguez, Ron Perlman, CCH Pounder, James Hong, Mako and Keone Young. The game’s soundtrack features more than 50 original music tracks performed by such renowned West Coast rap artists as Snoop Dogg, Westside Connection (Ice Cube, Mac 10 and WC), Warren G, KAM, Jayo Felony, Boo Yaa Tribe, Easy-E Jr., among others. Additionally, the game’s launch will be supported by a 20-song CD soundtrack that will debut on November 11. The soundtrack was produced by Bigg Swoop and Bright Riley for Vybe Squad Records and is being released by Koch Entertainment.
