Highly Anticipated Orchestral Score Written and Produced by Acclaimed "Battlestar
Galactica" Composer Bear McCreary


New York - January 21st, 2010 -Sumthing Else Music Works, through its licensing
relationship with Capcom®, proudly presents Dark Void(TM) Original Soundtrack featuring
the original orchestral score composed by Bear McCreary for the new third-person
action game Dark Void. Developed by Airtight Studios and Capcom, Dark Void combines
the thrill of soaring jetpack action with unique vertical cover and on-ground combat.
Dark Void marks the first time that Bear McCreary, the composer of popular sci-fi
TV series "Battlestar Galactica," has created a score for a video game. The Dark
Void Original Soundtrack will release on February 9th, 2010 to retail outlets through
Sumthing Else Music Works, and will be available for digital download on Sumthing Digital

Recorded at the renowned Warner Bros. Eastwood Scoring Stage and performed by some
of the best orchestral musicians in the world, Dark Void Original Soundtrack features
80 minutes of score hand-picked by composer Bear McCreary. It also includes a special
bonus track, "Theme from Dark Void (Mega Version)," an 8-bit rendering of the main
theme produced by McCreary for Capcom's just shipped downloadable DSiWare(TM) title,
Dark Void(TM) Zero.

Dark Void is a new sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fuelled
blend of aerial and on-foot combat set in a parallel universe called "The Void".
Players will take on the role of Will; a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances
while on a routine air cargo flight he crash lands into the Bermuda triangle leading
him to be trapped in the Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into
a desperate struggle for survival at the head of a group called The Survivors. Also
stuck in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious
alien race that plans to threaten Earth.

Capcom will release Dark Void on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system
from Microsoft®, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC in North America
on January 19, 2010 and across Europe on January 22, 2010. For more information
