Scarface will create a gameplay environment that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, touching on politics, news items and events of the day. Players will travel through the steamy, often violent streets of Miami, the irie islands of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and various other locales and will interact with a world full of seedy and dangerous characters to procure information, negotiate business deals, smuggle contraband and avoid rivals and DEA on a mission to rebuild their fallen empire.

The cast includes stars from the original film including Robert Loggia (Jagged Edge), who played Frank Lopez, Steven Bauer (Traffic), who starred as Manny Ribera, and Al Israel (Dangerous Minds), who appeared as Hector the Toad. Al Pacino lends his likeness to the lead role in the game and hand-picked the voice-over actor playing Tony Montana. In addition, key lines from Mr. Pacino's performance in the original film appear in the game.

Scarface: The World Is Yours has also attracted a host of stars new to the Scarface franchise who have lent their voices to characters throughout the game, creating a cast list and performance level that is unparalleled in video games.

The groundbreaking ensemble cast includes, James Woods (Casino); Robert Davi (Die Hard); Michael Rapaport (Beautiful Girls, The War at Home); rapper/actor Ice T (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit); Oliver Platt (The Ice Harvest); Jay Mohr (Jerry Maguire); Miguel Sandoval (Jurassic Park, Medium); Daniel Dae Kim (Lost); Willa Holland (The O.C.); Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck); Robert LaSardo (Nip/Tuck); Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives); NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, Jr.; Cheech Marin (From Dusk 'Til Dawn); Ricky Gervais (The Office); Michael York (Austin Powers films); Michael Rooker (Slither); Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong movies); Jason Mewes (Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back); Anthony Anderson (Hustle & Flow); Rick Yune (Die Another Day); Wilmer Valderrama (That 70s Show); Entourage's Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara; Richard Roundtree (Shaft); Tiny Lister (Next Friday); Bai Ling (Lords of Dogtown); Bam Margera (Viva La Bam); Cree Summer (Drawn Together); rapper N.O.R.E.; Tommy Lee; Cypress Hill's B. Real and Sen Dog; and Elliott Gould (Ocean's Eleven & Twelve).

"Scarface is a brand universally recognized for its cutting-edge cool, even two decades after the movie's original release. It's no surprise that so many of the top talent from film, television and music would want to be a part of that world," said Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer for Vivendi Games. "The video game is allowing people to be part of one of the most popular franchises in Hollywood. We're excited to be able to give today's talent the chance to play in Tony's world, and gamers the best Scarface experience with the best possible cast."

Scarface: The World Is Yours is expected to ship this Fall for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
