Award-winning 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 highly anticipated blockbuster ALIENS™: COLONIAL MARINES video game, launching worldwide on February 12, 2013.
Developed by critically acclaimed studio Gearbox Software in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES is the authentic addition to the ALIENS canon, bringing new levels of bone-chilling suspense and adrenaline-filled action to the renowned franchise.
Continuing the legacy of Jerry Goldsmith’s music in ALIEN and James Horner’s music in ALIENS, Kevin Riepl’s original score for ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES features all new themes and atmospheric underscores while staying faithful to the franchise’s iconic scores of Ridley Scott’s and James Cameron’s classic sci-fi horror cinema. Infusing his haunting, sweeping and bombastic orchestral score with familiar nods and intense cinematic action music performed by full live orchestra, Riepl draws on his own classical training and film scoring background to create an authentic ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES score that will immerse players in the definitive ALIENS gaming experience.
