The previous Mass Effect games have been truly epic in the soundtrack department, and Mass Efect 3 will certainly be no different. Today Bioware has revealed the composers responsible for the music in the trilogy’s finale and even released a snippet for us to drool over.
Reads a press release: “The magic of BioWare games has always been the emotional power of the story, so music is extremely important to the experience,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. “With Mass Effect 3, we’re taking players on a more personal journey, even though the scope is bigger than ever – an all-out galactic war! Each composer has played an intricate role in delivering the combination of epic scope and delicate emotion that will make Mass Effect 3 the best game in the series.”
The composers include Clint Mansell of Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream fame, Christopher Lennertz of Horrible Bosses, Mass Effect 2: Overlord, Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker, and Medal of Honor, Cris Velasco of the God of War series, Mass Effect 2: Kasumi and Mass Effect 2: Arrival, Sam Hulick ofMass Effect, Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky and Mass Effect 2, and Sascha Dikiciyan of TRON: Evolution, Mass Effect 2: Kasumi and Mass Effect 2: Arrival.
