Joris De Man Behind Killzone 3 Soundtrack

August 24, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Following his landmark Ivor Noverllo award-winning musical achievement thanks to Killzone 2, Joris De Man will be returning to provide a brand-new original music score the Guerrilla Games’ Killzone 3.

Joris De Man’s inspiring music for Killzone 3 promises to enhance the game’s Hollywood-style, action-focused narrative and drives the dramatic movie sequences and cinematic, visceral gameplay. De Man said:

“Winning the Ivor this year gave me such a boost because receiving was not just recognition for my work on the score, but being awarded it in its first year meant being part of a growing appreciation of game music in general. The achievement spurred me on and has given me a new energy that I hope will be heard in the music I’m now writing for Killzone 3. I was thrilled to be invited again to work alongside the team at Guerrilla; they continue to push the limits of design and technology and I’m really proud to be a part of their next opus.”

Mathijs de Jonge, Game Director at Guerrilla Games had this to say on de Man’s appointment once again for the shooters’ soundtrack:

“Joris is the kind of composer that keeps developing his skills and throughout the years he always manages to amaze us with new sounds, themes and direction in his music and for Killzone 3 he’s doing exactly that again. Killzone 3 will be the seventh title that I’ve worked on with Joris and it’s great to see how the projects we work on keep growing both in scale as well as popularity. I think it’s very important to have this kind of creative connection with the composer as it adds so much to the experience when music and game complement each other.”

The latest hotly-anticipated installment from Guerrilla Games is currently scheduled for a release in February next year. To listen to Joris De Man’s excellent Killzone 2 soundtrack, hit the break.
