Activision has signed up four top bands to record original tracks exclusively for the upcoming Fantastic Four video game.
Each track will focus on a member of the Fantastic Four. Taking Back Sunday lead the team with "Error Operator" for Mr. Fantastic; hip-hop heroes Jurassic 5 rock out "Clobberin' Time" for The Thing; punk-rockers The Explosion light up "I'm on Fire" for The Human Torch; and all-girl punkers Go Betty Go blast out "Everywhere" for The Invisible Woman.
The songs will debut in four character-specific trailers that will be released online in April and May, and will be included as unlockable bonus content in the Fantastic Four game.
Fantastic Four will let players take control of the Marvel superhero team through a single player and two-player co-op game. Authored by Zak Penn, who co-wrote the story for X2, the game follows the Fantastic Four film's storyline and expands the adventures by letting players stretch, control fire and use invisibility and brute force to defeat evil Super Villains in new environments and familiar comic book locales. Fantastic Four will be released in the second half of this year on Xbox, PlayStation 2, Gamecube, PC and GameBoy Advance.
