Redwood Shores & Los Angeles, Calif. – July 21, 2010 – Trion Worlds and Petroglyph Games are bringing the epic soundtrack of the highly-anticipated MMORTS, End of Nations™, to Comic-Con International: San Diego during a special performance of Video Games Live™. On Saturday, July 24th legendary game composer, and End of Nations Audio Director, Frank Klepacki will take the stage at the San Diego Civic Theater for the world premiere of the End of Nations soundtrack during Video Games Live: Bonus Round.
“Video Games Live is the event that brings game music to the forefront of our industry, and it’s an honor to participate,” said Klepacki. “With End of Nations, I’m aspiring to create a soundtrack that is as epic as the game is massive, and I can’t wait to share it.”
Klepacki will join other renowned game composers for a special installment of the popular concert series, which celebrates the music of video games with live performances along with exclusive video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, special fx, solo performers, live action and unique interactive segments to create a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience. The show begins at 8pm at the San Diego Civic Theatre, and tickets can be purchased on the Video Games Live website at http://www.videogameslive.com.
With more than 15 years of experience, Klepacki has worked with notable developers and publishers including SEGA, LucasArts, Electronic Arts and Disney producing some of the most well known soundtracks in gaming. His work can be heard in some of the best real-time strategy games of the past decade, such as Command & Conquer (C&C), Star Wars: Empire at War, and C&C: Red Alert, which won an award for best soundtrack from PC Gamer magazine.
"I've known Frank for over 16 years and his work as a video game composer is always amazing," said Video Games Live creator and executive producer Tommy Tallarico. "His music for End of Nations is incredible as well, and we're looking forward to performing it all over the world."
In addition to the concert, ticketholders will receive a free copy of the official End of Nations “Issue Zero” comic. The prequel to a four part miniseries is set to debut this fall, Issue Zero tells the story of a group of resistance fighters attempting to free themselves from the vice grip of the Order of Nations, the main villain of the game. Complimentary copies of the comics will also be available at the DC Comics booth, with the writer and artists on hand throughout the show for signings.
