    Gears of War 4's score is composed by Ramin Djawadi, who earned a Grammy nomination for Iron Man and also wrote the music for HBO's Game of Thrones, Microsoft announced today.

    Microsoft also released a behind-the-scenes video showing Djawadi doing his thing. The video features commentary from The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson, as well as other people involved with the game's music like audio director John Morgan and mixing engineer Alan Meyerson.


    "There are very few franchises that have the range of emotion that you have in a Gears game," Fergusson explains. "To get all of that out of the game, you need to have somebody who can deliver that musically. We looked for a composer who could bring that to us [and] Ramin was an obvious choice."

    Djawadi, who also wrote Warcraft's title track, said he was drawn to Gears of War 4 not only for its action, but also the softer moments.

    "Gears of War 4 is definitely action-driven but what really appealed to me, too, is that there is an underlying emotional throughline in the game that I really like," he said.

    Djawadi also talked about how the COG faction in Gears of War 4 will have an electronic-style sound, while the Swam enemies are "darker." This creates a "nice contrast between the two," he said.

    Some of Djawadi's other credits include the movie Pacific Rim and the TV show Person of Interest, which airs on GameSpot parent company network CBS.

    Gears of War 4 launches on October 11. It is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you can buy it digitally on Xbox One and get the PC version free or vice versa.
