'Medal of Honor' (ALL) Soundtrack Scored By Award-Winning Composer

Inspired by real events, Medal of Honor is an FPS game that introduces the Tier 1 Operator, a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle.

Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle. The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create the most authentic modern war experience. Inspired by real events, Medal of Honor reveals the mission of today’s most elite soldier – his will, his mindset and his uncompromising professionalism.

Medal of Honor is being built with a best-in-class single-player campaign. The Medal of Honor development team at EALA has been hand-selected by the studio leadership of General Manager Sean Decker, Executive Producer Greg Goodrich and Senior Creative Director Rich Farrelly. To compliment the single-player experience, EALA has enlisted the multiplayer expertise at EA DICE. This team will develop the multiplayer experience of Medal of Honor. These two studios are coming together to deliver a world-class Medal of Honor that is poised to re-set and re-boot the franchise for a new generation.

Composer Ramin Djawadi is creating a deep, emotional score for the modern combat first-person shooter, Medal of Honor. Known for his work on the Iron Man movie, the “Prison Break” television series and the remake of Clash of the Titans, Ramin Djawadi is bringing his unique style to the soundtrack for EA’s intense, action-packed modern warfare game taking place in war-town Afghanistan. The Medal of Honor original game score is now available for online purchase at select digital service providers.

"The new version of a landmark game always requires a next-level soundtrack," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing at EA. "But this 'reinvention' of Medal of Honor demanded a composer who could create an epic score that brings the game into a whole new era. The intuition and skill that makes Ramin Djawadi one of Hollywood's top young talents in film scoring is exemplified in Medal of Honor. This is an incredibly intense score, and we're tremendously proud to have him in the EA family."

Composer Ramin Djawadi explains, “The fact that it is modern day with various locations asked for a completely different approach both stylistically and thematically. The score is very widespread from emotional orchestral to edgy modern action. Western and ethnic instruments are used to represent the different cultures.”

“Designing a score that captures both the scalpel-like quite professionalism of the Tier 1 Operators and the sledge hammer action of big military has been a unique challenge. The music is designed to dynamically ebb and flow, complementing the big action sequences with thundering electric guitar and bass, and the quiet stealth with haunting strings and hymns. It is like a Hollywood action movie score on steroids,” said Djawadi.
