Mass Effect 3 Score Will Be Done By Clint Mansell

Posted By | On 10th, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, Movies, News

The name Clint Mansell may not sound familiar to you but he is known as one of the best and innovative people to score soundtracks.  He will be creating the score for Mass Effect 3, which is a big deal as Mass Effect 2 was hugely successful and the third game will complete the trilogy.  More and more composer that do movies are taking video games more seriously as Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight) did the score for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, though I’m sure the check in the mail has some persuasion as well. Clint Mansell has scored films such as Black Swan, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler. Clint Mansell’s “Lux Ӕterna,” was also re-orchestrated in a trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. His “Lux Ӕterna” was inspired from a piece from the film Requiem for a Dream which was probably one of his most famous scores in a film.  The epic saga of Mass Effect will complete its trilogy with Mass Effect 3 as it hits home as in Earth, releasing late 2011 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.

    I think you have to really be into video game music to appreciate this and I don’t think many people think past the idea of liking the music. I don’t know many gamers that care who made the music.

      you’re right most don’t care at all ..but the truth is that just as much as game design makes the game great i think that the music is an integral part to a games success.

    Also did you know that Hans Zimmer worked on the soundtrack of uncharted? now I dont know if it was uncharted 1 or two i just know he also worked on one of those games. Damn i know ME is a great franchise and all, and i was excited for ME2 coming to PS3 but i have to be honest when i played that demo, i was like WFT??? i just didn’t like the game at all. I didn’t like the feel of the game or anything. nevertheless it’s an amazing game according to just about everyone so i would have to believe it is. as far as soundtrack goes, I really think that it is vital to the game’s core. A great soundtrack can be the difference between an exciting game and a dull game. Aqua Out
