UBI Signs Musician/Actress Eve For 'XIII' (ALL)

by Thomas on May 7, 2003 @ 5:38 a.m. PDT

"XIII is a true original -- the most stylish game I have ever seen," said Eve. "When I saw the game, I knew I wanted to be involved. My character, Jones, is a strong, sexy female with attitude -- my fans will easily relate her to me."

XIII is a stylish, first-person shooter thriller featuring a conspiracy of epic proportions. The game's cel-shaded graphics showcase its unique visual style, which pays homage to its comic roots. As a secret agent with complete amnesia, players unravel clues behind their true identity, while uncovering sinister plots against themselves, the U.S. government, and a mysterious presidential assassination. In XIII, Jones proves a valuable ally, as players will need to call upon her assistance in several gripping situations. This collaborative mode is just one of XIII's varied gameplay modes, which also include stealth, all-out action, and multiplayer.

Philadelphia-born, Eve took the recording industry by storm with her critically acclaimed platinum debut album, Eve: Ruff Ryder's First Lady. Her follow-up, Scorpion, featured numerous hit singles including the Grammy®-award winning, "Let Me Blow Ya Mind." Her current album, EVE-OLUTION, is burning up the charts with the #1 hit single, "Gangsta Loving," and her current single, "Satisfaction." In addition to her red-hot recording career, Eve also appeared in 2002's blockbuster movies, Barbershop and XXX, and is slated to star in her own UPN sitcom this fall. Eve will also star in THE WOODSMAN with Benjamin Bratt and Kevin Bacon, which starts production this month. XIII is the first videogame appearance for this multi-talented singer/songwriter/actress/trendsetter.

"Eve is the perfect person to play the role of Major Jones," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing at Ubi Soft Entertainment. "She has a combination of style, sexiness, and attitude -- perfect attributes that describe the Jones character. Having a hot personality like Eve involved in the game enforces what the gaming community has been shouting all year -- XIII is the coolest action-shooter in 2003."
