Actual cast enhances CSI: NY game reality
Key actors from CBS’ CSI: NY contributed their voice and likeness to Ubisoft’s upcoming CSI: NY – The Game, including Golden Globe winner Gary Sinise, Melina Kanakaredes, Carmine Giovinazzo, Eddie Cahill, Hill Harper, Anna Belknap, Robert Joy and A.J. Buckley. Ubisoft senior vp Tony Key points out that this casting will “further solidify the game’s faithfulness to the television series.”
Gamers also will be able to play as actual characters for the first time, participating in original cases written by writers from the TV show, when the PC game comes out on Nov. 18 (or advance download it here). The property comes with a huge built-in audience – CSI: NY averages 11.8 million total viewers each week on CBS, and Ubisoft’s CSI video game franchise has sold more than 3.5 million units worldwide since the first CSI title was released in 2003.
