The same composer, Grammy and Emmy Award-nominated Ramin Djawadi.

Games of Thrones has an rather awesome score, and Djawadi’s other works are nothing to sneeze at. He composed the score for 2010’s Medal of Honor, System Shock 2, various television series, and films such as Warcraft, Iron Man and Pacific Rim.

If you watch the behind-the-scenes video above, you can hear bits and pieces of will bless your ears when Gears of War 4 releases.

In it, Djawadi discusses how he liked the emotional-theme which runs through the game and how he used this for inspiration.

Djawadi also touches upon how he and his team went with more of an electronic theme mixed with the orchestra for the COG, and going darker for scenes which feature the Swarm.

What you can hear sounds rather good, and a great score always adds to a game’s atmosphere.

Gears of War 4 launches on Xbox One and Windows 10 October 11.
