Features Bombastic Choral Music by Cris Velasco and Mike Reagan

Award-winning "God of War"
composers providing epic original score for new action adventure franchise

Award-winning composers Cris Velasco
(God of War series, Clive Barker’s Jericho) and Mike Reagan (God of War series,
Conan) have created the original music score for THQ’s highly anticipated new
action adventure title DARKSIDERS. Developed by THQ in-house studio Vigil Games,
DARKSIDERS puts players in the role of War, one of the four horsemen of the
Apocalypse. The dramatic score features 60 minutes of original music composed by
Velasco and Reagan and was recorded with a full choir at the world renowned
Skywalker Sound Studios.

Jeremy Robins, audio director at
Vigil Games, commented, "Mike and Cris have delivered a score that not only
encompasses a character as epic as one of the four horsemen, but helped define
it as an IP."

Victor Rodriguez, music director at
THQ, added, "Cris and Mike bring the emotion with their unique, highly visceral
musical score."

In DARKSIDERS players will explore a
world set 100 years after the biblical Apocalypse, traveling through expansive
dungeons, battling demons and angels and striking deals with unsavory characters
in an epic quest to restore the balance between Heaven and Hell. DARKSIDERS is
scheduled to release in North America on January 5th, 2010 and launches in the
UK on January 8th, 2010. For more information please visit
