Clive Barker’s Upcoming Action/Horror Videogame

Burbank, CA – Friday, August 17, 2007 – Codemasters announced today that multiple award-winning videogame composer Cris Velasco (God of War, God of War II) has scored an original soundtrack exclusively for Clive Barker’s Jericho - the eagerly anticipated action/horror FPS due out this fall. Codemasters also released today a new gameplay trailer, featuring music taken from Velasco’s soundtrack, currently available for download at

Hand picked for Clive Barker’s Jericho by none other than Barker himself, Cris Velasco has composed a haunting choral and cinematic orchestral score that enhances the game’s epic, paranormal horror experience.

“Cris Velasco’s music for Clive Barker’s Jericho is exquisite,” states Clive Barker. “Filled with yearning, dark energy, threat and redemption, it is the unstoppable engine in the terrifying ghost train of Jericho.”

Velasco has enjoyed considerable recognition for his prior work in videogames, including top honors from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences for “Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition,” GameSpot’s “Best Original Music Award,” IGN’s “Best Original Score Award,” and G.A.N.G.’s “Music of the Year.”

A spectacular, creative, and unflinching realization of Barker’s cannon of nightmares, Clive Barker’s Jericho is an interactive experience that mingles the darkest elements of Barker’s horror fiction with an ambitious, age-spanning story aimed at mature gamers, fans of Clive Barker and horror fiction enthusiasts.

Clive Barker’s Jericho will unleash its supernatural assault on retail outlets nationwide in late October, just in time for Halloween, and will be available for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system from SCEA, Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft® and Games for Windows®, and is rated “M” (Mature – Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language – Content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older) by the ESRB.
