Ramin Djawadi, who has created the music scores for movies like Iron Man and Pacific Rim, along with the music for Game of Thrones, has been named as the music composer for Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 shooter Gears of War 4.

Some of Djawadi's other music credits include movies like the Clash of the Titans and Red Dawn remakes, and most recently Warcraft. He's also composed music for TV shows like Prison Break and Person of Interest and will do the same for HBO's next big genre series Westworld. As far as his work for Gears of War 4, Xbox Wire states:

Ramin's compositions mixed with the sounds of the iconic lancers, gnashers and voices of the franchise, take the game to a whole new level. Have a listen for yourself by watching the video above, which features some awesome behind-the-scenes footage of Ramin in his element, as well as commentary from Studio Head Rod Fergusson, Audio Director John Morgan and Mixing Engineer Alan Meyerson discussing their creative process and inspirations for the game's diverse musical themes.Needless to say, everyone at The Coalition and Xbox is a huge fan of Ramin's work, and the music he's composed for Gears of War 4 is something we think is really special and adds an amazing dimension to the experience.

The video also shows some new gameplay from Gears of War 4 itself. The game is due for release on October 11.
