THQ today announced its upcoming videogame based on HBO's series The Sopranos. The game will evoke the atmosphere, action and conflicts that are the cornerstone of the hit show, and is backed by key members of the all-star cast who will lend their voices and likenesses, including James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano.

"Teaming up with one of the best in the business, we're excited to enter this new entertainment medium with our most successful and widely recognized original series, The Sopranos," said Carmi Zlotnik, executive vice president, New Media Programming, HBO. "It's clear that fans want more of The Sopranos, and creating a game that puts the player in their world is a great way to satisfy them."

"We're excited to work with HBO on creating a game that captures the spirit of the groundbreaking series - a modern classic that redefines the life of crime genre," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president, Worldwide Publishing, THQ. "The Sopranos has become television legacy for this generation and now fans and gamers can become part of the story and see if they have the muscle and wit to become 'made.'"

A mob war is brewing as Philadelphia's and New Jersey's most powerful families are about to collide. As the illegitimate son of "Big Pussy," you have been born into the organization and are now being given an opportunity to demonstrate your loyalty to Tony Soprano. As a soldier you must earn money on collections, protect your turf through intimidation, and gain admiration within your own family to move up in the ranks of the organization. Carry out orders from Paulie, Silvio, Christopher and Tony in familiar locations such as the Bada Bing!, Nuovo Vesuvio's and Satriale's. Storyline collaborated with show creator David Chase and voiced by the show's key cast members.

The Sopranos game is scheduled to release for the Xbox 360 and PS2 this holiday season.
