As squad leader, players coordinate the actions of multiple infantry fire teams, leading them through a variety of hostile environments. An intuitive control scheme allows direction of squads in real-time as players outthink, outmaneuver and outgun enemies through more than 12 levels of intense warfare. Players will utilize authentic battlefield tactics as they confront the enemy with a deadly arsenal of weapons, the latest military equipment, and new Player-controlled mechanized units. With an enhanced multiplayer mode, players can go online and battle friends through a variety of new head-to-head and co-op objective-based missions.

To ensure the best live performances, Schyman recorded with Hollywood's leading Arabic instrumentalists and vocalists.

David Rovin, Audio Director, Pandemic Studios, LLC, said, "Our vision for the music on FSW2 was a subtle mix of western military themes and middle-eastern timbres. Garry understood immediately what we were shooting for, and he nailed it. In some pieces he leaned more on the traditional orchestral ideas, weaving in subtle ethnic sounds. In others he let the Arabic instrumentalists and vocalists create the dominant atmosphere."

Schyman's previous video game soundtrack credits include THQ's smash hit Destroy All Humans!~Y developed by Pandemic Studios. Schyman's score for Destroy All Humans! has recently been nominated by the Game Audio Network Guild for "Music of the Year 2005," "Best Live Performance Recording" and "Best Original Instrumental" - Destroy All Humans! Main Title. This nomination is considered, by many, to be the most prestigious of all music nominations because it is voted on by the leading composers, musicians and audio directors in the video games industry. Winners are announced on Thursday, March 23, 2006 in San Jose, California during the Game Developers Conference.

Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers takes the brand's innovative and authentic military gaming experience to the next level with new features in every aspect of the game. Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers is scheduled to release for Xbox, PS 2 and PC on March 27, 2006.
