Los Angeles, California – June 15th, 2005 – Inon Zur (www.inonzur.com), an internationally acclaimed music composer for film, television and video games, is writing the musical score for EXTEEL, a new online action game currently under development by NCsoft’s Team Beam. Zur has composed music for well-known game titles such as Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (cinematics), Men Of Valor, Socom II and Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest. His film/TV credits include Power Rangers, Escaflowne and Digimon, and his powerful orchestral scores are featured in the promotional trailers for recent blockbuster movies such as Kingdom Of Heaven, The Pacifier and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
EXTEEL is an online game featuring stylized action in a universe filled with robots. The story takes you to a far off world where the exiled survivors of a lost war struggle against each other for control of the planet’s resources. Gamers create, customize and develop their own robots using a robust character creation tool, with easy-to-access gameplay and a unique merging of strategic combat and high-speed action reminiscent of the stunning action seen in Hong Kong martial arts movies.
