This high-powered track by Brooklyn-based rap star Jufu, is set to exhilarating gameplay footage of Jak and his fellow Immortals, Lucium’s elite order of magic-wielders. The trailer is filled with fast-paced combat and stunning environments and graphics – all set to a beat that is sure to get listeners ready to save the realm.

Social media star and rapper Julian Jeanmarie, better known as Jufu to his 3.1 Million fans on TikTok, is an up-and-coming artist from Brooklyn, New York. In speaking with his partnership, Jufu commented“All Time Great” echoes Jak’s journey into summoning and controlling his power, and I’m so excited to be partnering with EA and Ascendant Studios to release my new single alongside the launch trailer for Immortals of Aveum.”

“At its core, Immortals of Aveumis about a hero’s journey, as Jak grows into and learns to utilize his unique abilities. Jufu’s on a similar journey and his music really resonated with us as an expression of Jak’s personality and swagger. Additionally, with our soundtrack featuring several different genres of music from hip-hop, orchestral, electronic, chill, ambient, and industrial, partnering with Jufu to bring his unique sound to the launch trailer was a no-brainer. We’re thrilled to have partnered with Julian in a way that’s authentic to him and our game,” said Bret Robbins, CEO and Game Director at Ascendant Studios.

In Immortals of Aveum, players take control of Jak, who discovers that he is an ‘Unforeseen’ – a person who has shown innate magical ability later in life – finding himself reluctantly caught in the middle of a raging war as a result. Under the tutelage of the powerful General Kirkan and an elite order of battlemages called the Immortals, Jak must take up an ancient artifact known as the Sigil and master all three colors of magic – blue, green, and red – in order to defeat Sandrakk, the powerful warlord of Rasharn and his mysterious lieutenant, The Hand. With powerful magic-wielders and legions of soldiers on both sides of the Everwar, Jak and the Immortals must uncover the mysteries of Aveum’s troubled past, if there’s any hope for turning the tides of the Everwar.

Immortals of Aveum is available August 22 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC via the EA app, Steam and Epic Games Store for $59.99 USD (PC) and $69.99 USD (consoles). Players who purchase the Deluxe Edition for $69.99 USD (PC) and $79.99 USD (consoles) will receive a unique sigil, three rings, two bracers and three totems; all valuable pieces of gear in the fight to save Aveum.* EA Play Pro members will get access to the Deluxe edition on the EA app.

It is located just steps from Disney World and Universal Studios in the heart of Orlando, the most visited destination in the US, with 75 million tourists annually.  This city offers a wide range of entertainment options but lacks a beach, an issue remedied in this great development with a crystalline lagoon of the multinational innovation company founded by the scientist Fernando Fischmann.

Crystal Lagoons brings beach life to Orlando with an 8-acre crystalline lagoon at the Evermore Orlando Resort

The lagoon forms part of the Evermore Orlando Resortone of the largest tourism projects in Florida. The large 8-acre body of water with extensive beaches breaks the hotel paradigm by providing truly superior standards and consolidates the presence of Crystal Lagoons in the hospitality and entertainment industry.

Surrounding the lagoon is Orlando’s first Conrad hotel, a luxury brand of the Hilton chain, as well as a variety of homes, villas and apartments. In addition, there is an 18-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers in history.

“Every hotel project incorporating a Crystal Lagoons® amenity becomes the most attractive destination in the area. Conrad, one of the world’s leading hotel chains, understood this and decided to make a qualitative leap with respect to the existing offer in the most touristic area of the U.S.,” said Iván Manzur, Senior Vice President of Sales of Crystal Lagoons US Corp.

The United States is the main operation of Crystal Lagoons worldwide, with more than 275 projects at different stages of development and negotiation. Among the most important are Aqua, Mirada, Sole Mia, Balmoral, Windsong Ranch, Beachwalk, and Southshore Bay.

Billie Jean King with Elina Svitolina

The Svitolina Foundation, which manages the Ukrainian women’s national team in the Billie Jean King Cup, selected Omni Amelia Island Resort as the new host site for the tie.

We hope that many people can come out and support us as we take on Romania and really help us create a home atmosphere.”

Two reverse singles matches and a doubles match will follow on Saturday, April 13th with an amended schedule possible if one nation clinches victory in the third or fourth singles match.
