Frequency adds to musical and video content
SCEA announced today the addition of four major recording artists to their upcoming PS2 game, Frequency. The newly acquired bands will be Orbital, Powerman 5000, Meat Beat Manifesto, and Funkstar De Luxe. These 4 major groups add to the already impressive list of Paul Oakenfold, Roni Size, Lo Fidelity All Stars, Fear Factory, Crystal Method, BT, Juno Reactor, DJ Q-Bert and Dub Pistols. Frequency is a title that is genuinely innovative in the way music games have been developed. Gamers will be able to mix and re-mix songs from top bands in a unique, new addictive experience. Exclusive tracks have also been added by Funkstar De Luxe and Meat Beat Manifesto, showcasing a Danish pioneer of house music and electric dance beat extraordinaire, respectively.
"I was excited for the chance to be able to create an exclusive song for Frequency," said Martin Ottesen, also known as Funkstar De Luxe. "Offering the huge PlayStation 2 fan base a chance to re-create and re-mix my music is a fantastic opportunity for more and more people, immersed in a truly unique gaming experience, to get to the core of and be a part of what Funkstar De Luxe is all about: having fun!"
"As we add more and more amazing artists to Frequency, we are continuing to blur the lines between gaming and mass entertainment," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "With the addition of bands like Powerman 5000, Funkstar De Luxe, Orbital and Meat Beat Manifesto, Frequency continues to reach every genre of music and give gamers the opportunity to take part in the music revolution by playing and mixing music of their favorite bands."
There will be more than 25 diverse songs in Frequency, as well as unique video content. The game is based upon rhythmic reactions to buttons, as it is your task to keep up with the beat while making fun and interesting music in the process. PSX Extreme has an in-depth preview of the game if you are interested in learning more about it. We will keep you posted on any new information.
