World premiere symphonic performance of Cris Velasco’s World War II score announced for third annual PlayFest Music, Animation & Video Game Festival

(Los Angeles) June 5, 2014 – Multi award-winning composer Cris Velasco’s original score for the new first-person shooter action game set during World War II, ENEMY FRONT, will premiere in concert at the third annual PlayFest -- Music, Animation and Videogames Festival in Spain, scheduled to take place in the ancient city of Fuengirola in Málaga from September 11-14, 2014.

“We're honored to premiere Cris Velasco's music for Enemy Front at the 2014 PlayFest symphonic concert,” announced the festival’s director David Doncel Barthe. “A dramatic, dark and mature soundtrack, reminiscent of ‘60s and ’70s war genre film music, Enemy Front is a breath of fresh air which breaks with current conventions. Velasco’s score for Enemy Front is a canto for the World War II resistance operations; A song of honor, humanity and courage.”

Developed and published by CI Games and distributed by BANDAI NAMCO Games America, Inc., ENEMY FRONT is the first truly modern WW2 FPS, featuring stunning visuals and a richly interactive combat sandbox gameplay experience. Set against the visceral backdrop of breathtaking European locales, players take on the role of American war correspondent Robert Hawkins, as he fights hand in hand with Resistance Fighters opposing the Nazi juggernaut in France, Germany, Norway, and during the Warsaw Uprising.

Inspired by the profound heroism and sacrifices of ‘The Greatest Generation,’ Velasco’s dramatic original score for ENEMY FRONT is perhaps his most emotional, inventive and powerful opus to date. “At its core, ENEMY FRONT is a story of redemption and survival,” said Velasco. “This gave me an opportunity to write the score as more of an emotional journey, rather than a typical combat score. The Warsaw Uprising is something that hasn't been addressed in games like this before so I felt a responsibility to do it justice. I was honored to be asked to provide the music and I truly hope everyone enjoys the music as much as I enjoyed writing it.”

A prolific and versatile composer, Cris Velasco has become one of the most sought-after composers in interactive entertainment, scoring many major titles including Company of Heroes 2, Mass Effect 3, God of War Trilogy, Darksiders and Borderlands 1&2. Velasco’s music is performed in symphony concerts worldwide and has received numerous accolades including "Best Original Score" from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, "Best Original Music" nomination from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, NBC News' "Best Video Game Music of the Year," GameTrailers' "Best Soundtrack of the Year" and IGN's "People's Choice Award - Best Overall Music."

ENEMY FRONT will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on June 10 in North America and June 13 in Europe. For more information visit www.enemyfront.com.
