In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Developer: Brainbox Games
Release date: October 25th

Toronto, Ontario, August 17, 2005 - Groove Games today announced its agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to publish an interactive game based on Universal Pictures and Atmosphere Entertainment MM's' recently released horror film, George A. Romero's Land of the Dead.

The film, which critics have called "a compelling, striking vision," "a masterpiece" and "tour de force," hit theatres on June 24th, 2005. The full-featured, first-person shooter video game sets players in the midst of a gruesome adventure in which they battle to save themselves - and a quickly-diminishing living population - from an army of the dead bent on spreading a zombie plague.

Developed by Brainbox Games, a Digital Extremes Studio, and using the Unreal Engine, the game features terrifying zombies, frightening effects, an immersive storyline and key environments seen in the film. Gamers can also join intense, bone-chilling multiplayer battles against the dead on Xbox Live.

"George A. Romero's Land of the Dead is a new classic in the zombie film genre and Groove Games is excited to bring games based on the film to the PC and Xbox," said Jon Walsh, CEO of Groove Games.

"The game features intense action that horror fans will love, and the ability to play head to head against other players in zombie-infested levels is an absolute blast." In the game, a horrific plague has broken out and mobs of zombies are roaming throughout the tri-state area, killing people at random. Gamers must quickly arm themselves and destroy these horrible creatures by any means necessary. Gamers will learn of a fortified city, Fiddler's Green, which is the last bastion of safety for the living. They will need to survive a harrowing journey to the city, and if they do, will discover the frightening lengths to which the living will go in order to save themselves. Gamers can wage war against the dead with a variety of melee weapons and ranged weapons, including Sniper Rifles, Baseball Bats, M16s, Fire Axes and even shovels.

The unique multiplayer modes allow players to work with or against other humans while eradicating the Zombie-infested wasteland. "We are thrilled with Groove Games' ability to deliver a game that combines frenetic gameplay with true moments of fright, and to capture the adrenaline of the film from which it is inspired," said Bill Kispert, vice president of Interactive, Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. "Universal has a long heritage in the horror genre and we are excited to once again extend that heritage into the interactive gaming space." The Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green video game will be released in October 2005.

About Land of the Dead

George A. Romero's Land of the Dead is the acclaimed director's long-awaited return to the genre he invented, beginning with the seminal Night of the Living Dead and continuing with Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. In this new tale, Romero creates a harrowing vision of a modern-day world where the walking dead roam an uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead "normal" lives behind the walls of a fortified city. A new society has been built by a handful of enterprising, ruthless opportunists, who live in the towers of a skyscraper, high above the hard-scrabble existence on the streets below. But outside the city walls, an army of the dead is evolving. Inside, anarchy is on the rise. With the very survival of the city at stake, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from an army of the dead. George A. Romero's Land of the Dead is written and directed by Romero and stars Simon Baker, Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento, Robert Joy and John Leguizamo. The film is produced by Mark Canton, Peter Grunwald and Bernie Goldmann. This film has been rated R (Restricted-Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) for pervasive strong violence and gore, language, brief sexuality and some drug use.
