‘Gears of War 4’ Soundtrack Features Score by ‘Game of Thrones’ Composer (EXCLUSIVE)

Ramin Djawadi has gone from Westeros to Sera. The composer, best known for his work on “Game of Thrones,” has lent his talents to the video game “Gears of War 4.”

His score will be featured on “Gears of War 4 — The Soundtrack,” out today exclusively on Microsoft’s Groove streaming service. It will be released via digital and streaming outlets on Sumthing.com and iTunes on October 18 and a physical CD release on November 18, with presales available now.

“Djawadi’s compositions mixed with the sounds of the iconic Lancers, Gnashers and voices of the franchise, take the game to a whole new level,” a release read.

The video game itself will be available worldwide on Xbox One and Windows 10 on October 11.

45 million players worldwide have played the “Gears of War” franchise since its inception a decade ago. Players will assume the role of JD Fenix — son of hero Marcus Fenix (the protagonist in the first game. The young hero and his friends Kait and Del will explore the ravaged of Sera to rescue loved ones and confront a new threat. “Gears of War 4” will serve as the first chapter of a new “Gears” saga.

As previously reported, a “Gears of War” feature film is in the works. Microsoft and Universal are teaming up on the project.

“As a way to support the franchise the next logical step was to make the movie,” “Gears” co-creator Fergusson told Variety. “We’d done comics and novels in the past but the opportunity to work with Universal to bring the movie to life was perfect.”

Fans will be able to further immerse themselves in the “Gears of War” universe with the release of the new soundtrack.
