Kevin Riepl to score Aliens: Colonial Marines
Gears of War Composer lends his skill to Sci-Fi game
Film and video game composer Kevin Riepl (Silent Night, ABCs of Death, The Aggression Scale, Gears of War, Resistance: Burning Skies) has created an original symphonic score for the upcoming title Aliens: Colonial Marines.
A continuation to James Cameron's film Aliens, the story of the game takes place after the events of the second film. Continuing the legacy of Jerry Goldsmith's music in Alien and James Horner's music in Aliens, Kevin Riepl's original score features all new themes and atmospheric underscores while staying faithful to the franchise's iconic scores of Ridley Scott's and James Cameron's sci-fi horror cinema. Riepl draws on his own classical training and film scoring background to create an authentic score.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is set to arrive on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in February. A Wii U version is also scheduled for a later date.
