Electronic Arts gets the jump on the baseball season with the year's most cutting-edge, college-bound in-game soundtrack with MVP 06 NCAA Baseball.
Slated for release in Spring 2006, the game heralds in the new season with the ping of the aluminium bat, the roar of the crowd and an electrifying in-game soundtrack provided exclusively by Victory Records, the #1 independent record label in the country. Designed to celebrate everything that makes NCAA baseball unique, the new title features intense action, stadiums filled with school spirit and 10 hot rock tracks that intensify the attitude and authenticity of college sports in the game.
Making their debut in MVP 06 NCAA Baseball is "This Is Who We Are" from Hawthorne Heights whose album is slated for release at the end of February. Also launching through the game are new tracks "Paper Cliche" from Action Action and "Repeater" from Waterdown.
To further boost the musical experience of the game, fans who participate in the pre-purchase program will get a free CD sample disk with over 20 songs from Victory Records including nearly all of the tracks featured in the game. Available now, the CDs are available while supplies last at all EB and Gamestop retail outlets nationwide.
"Anyone on campus will tell you that Victory Records is the coolest brand in rock. Pairing them up with EA SPORTS was a perfect fit," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Music Marketing at EA. "Each one of these songs intensifies the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat."
Victory's Leader Tony Brummel said "Teaming up with EA is a natural for us. They are a brilliant company that has really utilized the power of music to increase the overall entertainment value of their games, and, at the same time, help in the development of many fantastic artists. They have their ear to the street and are leaps and bounds ahead of their competition."
