I know what you all might be asking. “Game of Thrones in my Gears of War?” Well, it’s more likely than you think. Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has joined up with The Coalition to create the score for Gears of War 4 [official site]. “I certainly wanted to stay in the direction fans know, but at the same time, I wanted to bring my own style to it,” Djawadi has said.
This isn’t Djawadi’s first foray into video games. He had experience as a sound technician with Looking Glass Studios (System Shock, Thief) back in the ’90s. In addition to Game of Thrones, Djawadi’s TV and film credits include the Warcraft theme, the Iron Man Soundtrack, and scores for the Prison Break remake and HBO newcomer Westworld.
Gears of War 4 launches on October 11. You can catch a preview of the soundtrack in this video featuring Ramin Djawadi:
