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.

Scarface: The World Is Yours is the eighth game to sell more than a million units and the third title to sell more than 2 million units for Radical Entertainment, one of Sierra Entertainment’s four internal studios.

“Selling 2 million units of Scarface: The World Is Yours worldwide is great achievement and a direct reflection of the outstanding support received by the international retail and gaming community,” said Pascal Brochier, president, global retail for Vivendi Games. “This milestone is another strong example of Radical Entertainment’s development talents and Sierra Entertainment’s commitment to deliver a high quality, compelling gaming experience.”

"It's been exciting to watch the continued success of Scarface: The World Is Yours," said Bill Kispert, vice president and general manager, Interactive, Universal Pictures. "It's a testament to the fantastic word of mouth the game has received among players, and reinforces that the Scarface film and character have truly become ingrained in popular culture."

Scarface: The World Is Yours presents a sequel storyline that asks “What if Tony Montana survived the mansion shootout?” The game plunges players deep into the seedy underbelly of 1980s Miami as the one-and-only Tony Montana. Players are challenged to re-enact the climactic mansion shoot-out from the original film, but in the game the player has the opportunity to help Tony fight his way out of the mansion and survive. As Tony, the player must then rebuild his fallen empire and wreak vengeance against his enemies.
