AUTHENTICITY STRESSED IN RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

‘Let me tell you a story John…. There was a sculptor, and he found a stone.  A special stone.  He dragged it home and he worked on it for months, until he finally finished.  When he was ready, he showed it to his friends and they said he had created a great statue.  And the sculptor said he hadn’t created anything. The statue was always there, he just cleared away the small pieces.  We didn’t make you this fighting machine.  We just chipped away the rough edges.’ – Col. Samuel Trautman, RAMBO III ™ & © 1988 Studiocanal S.A. All rights reserved.

London, 1st March 2013: UK video game publisher Reef Entertainment today announced that RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME will feature the original movie voice-tracks of John Rambo  (Sylvester Stallone) and Col. Samuel Trautman  (Richard Crenna) in their definitive game on the world famous series of movies.

A Reef spokesperson said: “Our goal is to produce the finest Rambo video game ever made. To do that, we are including dialogue, special effects, and music from the movies. 

STUDIOCANAL, the owners of the Rambo films, searched their extensive archives and tracked down audio reels containing the original voice recording tapes for FIRST BLOOD, FIRST BLOOD PART II & RAMBO III. These tapes provided us with the pristine vocal performances of Stallone and Crenna that we have included in the game.”

RAMBO ® THE VIDEO GAME will put players in Rambo’s combat boots and take them on an action-packed journey through the iconic action-sequences and story-arcs of FIRST BLOOD ™, RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II ™ & RAMBO III ™.  The game will be locked and loaded with classic dialogue, rage-screams and exclamations from the movies.
