Gears 3 Soundtrack Available At Game Launch

Xbox 360 Shooter News Microsoft Epic

What is that perfect companion that helps covey tone and creates atmosphere? Music, of course. Now, if you really enjoy a series of scores in a game, you will try to buy the soundtrack. Through their licensing relationship with Epic Games, Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc. is releasing Gears of War 3 The Soundtrack for retail and digital release of the 20th of September, simultaneous with the release of the game.

Gears of War 3 The Soundtrack features the original music score by Steve Jablonsky who also wrote the music for Gears of War 2, Michael Bay’s The Island, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Transformers movies. The veteran film composer created nearly 80 minutes of new music for the latest installment of the Gears of War franchise. The score is an impressive organic and electronic hybrid mix featuring live orchestra and choir performed by the Northwest Sinfonia and mixed by Remote Control Productions.

Steve Jablonsky had this to say about the Gears of War 3 soundtrack:

“Gears of War 3 is huge. It was like scoring a summer blockbuster. I love the guys at Epic because to them, the characters and the story are just as important as the gameplay. Yes, the gameplay is awesome and badass, but there is a ton of depth to these characters, and I think that’s a big part of why so many people love this franchise. Epic’s commitment to story allows me to dig deeper musically and really have some fun with the score.”

Gears of War 3 heads into stores in 20th of September and is only available on Xbox 360.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
