When Sound Blaster® Audigy sound card users update the game with the EAX ADVANCED HD Audio Enhancement, they can experience stunning acoustic effects like smooth Environmental Morphing, dynamic occlusion and obstruction effects, advanced environmental reverberation, and accurate 3D positional audio. The full EAX ADVANCED HD functionality of the Sound Blaster Audigy sound cards offers a multi-channel 5.1 listening experience in both single player and multiplayer modes of Jedi Knight II, which was developed by Raven Software, an award-winning developer noted for specific emphasis on graphic excellence in electronic games.
"We are excited to provide our customers with one of the most compelling 3D audio experiences available on the PC," said Brian Raffel, Studio Head of Raven Software. "Creative's cutting-edge Sound Blaster hardware platform and EAX ADVANCED HD effects technology take the in-game audio acoustics to a whole new level for Jedi Knight II."
"A movie theater audio experience was the goal for a title of this caliber," said George Thorn, director of audio marketing for Creative. "The all-new EAX ADVANCED HD game audio library that we developed specifically for the Sound Blaster Audigy sound cards was able to deliver this. By adding EAX ADVANCED HD to the Quake® engine that powers the game, we put you right in the heart of the action and surround you with a fully immersive multi-channel audio environment."
The EAX ADVANCED HD Audio Enhancement for Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is optimized for Creative's award-winning Sound Blaster Audigy sound cards, which feature the Audigy chip, with up to 4x the processing power of any other Creative sound card for full EAX ADVANCED HD functionality in gaming. It also delivers 3D positional audio for owners of EAX 2.0-enabled sound cards such as the Sound Blaster Live! and Sound Blaster Extigy.
The EAX ADVANCED HD Audio Enhancement will soon be integrated into the retail version of Star Wars Jedi Knight II.
