COMPANY OF HEROESTM 2 FEATURES ORIGINAL SCORE BY AWARD-WINNING COMPOSER CRIS VELASCO

PC GamesInternationally celebrated composer Cris Velasco provides the original score for Relic Entertainment, Inc.'s Company of Heroes™ 2, the sequel to the highest rated strategy game of all time*.

Velasco is one of the most sought-after composers in the medium, best known for his award-winning music featured in the God of War and Mass Effect franchises. Recorded with world-class orchestra musicians and choir from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Hungary, Velasco's score for Company of Heroes 2 majestically captures the solemn heroism and human tragedy of the Eastern Front conflict during World War II. Company of Heroes 2 is scheduled to be released for PC on 25th June 2013.

Company of Heroes 2 moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history's most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front, challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow.

"Cris Velasco's score perfectly captures the heroism and tragedy that we set out to portray in Company of Heroes 2," said Relic Entertainment Audio Director David Renn. "Cris worked tirelessly to provide us with rich and compelling music that is unlike any game soundtrack I have ever heard. From the depths of the Russian winter to the epic scale of Eastern Front battles, the score supports the game in a truly cinematic way and we couldn't be happier with the result."

"I approached this score from the very beginning as more of a 'Symphony for the Eastern Front' rather than a typical game score," said Cris Velasco. "The music sets out to convey the horror of war and the determination of the Russian soldiers."

Previously a BAFTA nominee and winner of "Best Original Score" at the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Achievement Awards (God of War), Cris Velasco's music was recently honored with NBC News' "Best Video Game Music of 2012", GameTrailers' "Best Soundtrack of the Year", IGN's "People's Choice Award - Best Overall Music" (Mass Effect 3), and nominated for "Outstanding Achievement in Music Composition" at the 16th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. Velasco's upcoming score for Company of Heroes 2 is highlighted among the "Most Anticipated Video Game Soundtracks of 2013" by Forbes.

Company of Heroes™ 2 will be available for PC in June 2013. For more information check www.companyofheroes.com, and to download SEGA game assets, please visit www.sega-press.com.
