Each Gears of War score has been an unforgettable experience, and Gears of War 4 features one that will take that experience even further. Today, we’re excited to announce that the game’s score is composed by a Grammy and Emmy Award-nominated maestro whose tunes are beloved (and frequently hummed) by millions around the globe: Ramin Djawadi.
Renowned for scoring some of Hollywood’s biggest hit TV shows and films, including Game of Thrones, Iron Man and Pacific Rim, Ramin is bringing his unique talent and vision to create a sweeping score that fuels the heart-pounding adventure and riveting story of Gears of War 4.
Ramin’s compositions mixed with the sounds of the iconic lancers, gnashers and voices of the franchise, take the game to a whole new level. Have a listen for yourself by watching the video above, which features some awesome behind-the-scenes footage of Ramin in his element, as well as commentary from Studio Head Rod Fergusson, Audio Director John Morgan and Mixing Engineer Alan Meyerson discussing their creative process and inspirations for the game’s diverse musical themes.
Needless to say, everyone at The Coalition and Xbox is a huge fan of Ramin’s work, and the music he’s composed for Gears of War 4 is something we think is really special and adds an amazing dimension to the experience. We can’t wait for you to hear all of his incredible music when Gears of War 4 launches on Xbox One and Windows 10 on Oct. 11.
