and navigate through the streets of Miami, the Florida Keys, the Bahamas &

other locations negotiating deals with unsavory characters, avoiding rivals

and the DEA, in a quest to rebuild a fallen empire.

"The treacherous

world of Scarface is a natural property to translate into a cinematic game play

experience," said Michael Pole, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Studios

for Vivendi Universal Games. "The game will feature cutting-edge technology,

a compelling storyline and the unprecedented experience of playing as one of

Hollywood’s most notorious gangsters, Tony Montana."

on politics, news items and events of the day.

David McKenna has written an original, event-driven storyline for the interactive

game that will lead the player through the underworld.

The movie Scarface

has had an influence on many rappers, who make references to the film, sample
