Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) has rounded up some of Hollywood's top talent to lend their voices to its upcoming action adventure game GUN. Developed by Neversoft Entertainment, GUN takes gamers to the untamed West of the late-1800s where greed, lust and murder are rampant. Legendary actors include leading man Thomas Jane as vengeful gunslinger Colton White; Kris Kristofferson as Colton's mountain man father, Ned; Tom Skerritt as Resistance Fighter Clay Allison; Brad Dourif as evil preacher Josiah Reed; Ron Perlman as Mayor Hoodoo Brown of Empire, New Mexico; and Lance Henriksen as the obsessive tyrant Thomas MacGruder.
"This amazing cast of renowned, talented Hollywood actors brings the rich storyline of GUN to life," said Dusty Welch, vice president of global brand management for Activision Publishing. "Players this fall will get to experience the brutality that was the American West and through this voice talent feel like they are part of the action."
In addition to its extraordinary voice talent, GUN boasts top screenwriting and musical scores. Hollywood screenwriter Randall Jahnson (Mask of Zorro, The Doors) penned the engrossing storyline and plot progression that will transport players back in time to the lawless West. Videogame soundtrack veteran Christopher Lennertz produced and composed the score for GUN. The music was performed by the Northwest Sinfonia using an 80 piece orchestra.
As Colton White, players must straddle the line between good and evil as they showdown against corrupt lawmen, a murderous preacher, renegade army psychopaths, merciless outlaws and unforgiving Native Americans, while waging war on horseback, collecting bounties, and commandeering trains. Players travel through an action-packed landscape of high mountain wilderness, deserts and bustling territorial towns in an epic story of betrayal, greed, and revenge.
GUN is slated for release this fall for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube, and Windows PC. The game is rated "M" ("Mature" – Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol) by the ESRB.
