Hans Zimmer Working On Crysis 2 OST

EA have just announced that the Crysis 2 score has been worked on by Hans Zimmer. Er, actually, let's start again. Open this page in another window, and then press the button at the same time as you read that. Done? See, that's why this is worth a post. Zimmer, who's behind the excellent scores of Inception, Dark Knight and Renaissance Man, has also worked on, oh, Modern Warfare 2. Did that have music? Quite how involved he really is becomes a little more confusing when you read the press release.

According to EA,

"Zimmer and his team featuring Lorne Balfe worked with the existing composers Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu to create the intense and dramatic score for Crysis 2."

I mean, he could have made the tea. But Zimmer has reported his interest in the project, saying,

"I was drawn to Crysis 2 because of Crytek’s passion for the project and the world they created. And I am very happy with the outcome of our collaboration."

(The "Will this do?" is silent.)

The game comes out on the 25th, at which point we'll be able to figure out if he's right. Meanwhile, here's a trailer about how you can go fast.
