'Dawn of War: Winter Assault' Gets Musical Score

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault features a deeper single-player experience, a brand new fifth race – The Imperial Guard – and even more intense Dawn of War action. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault is based on the world of Warhammer 40,000 - the dark, futuristic, fantasy universe from Games Workshop.

Jonathan Dowdeswel, Relic Entertainment's producer for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, said, "Coming off of Dawn of War, we realized that we had underutilized the effectiveness of music to enhance the user experience in the game. For Winter Assault we wanted to strive for a much tighter connection between action, music, and story. We decided to work with Inon Zur and focus all of the music composition to relate directly to the Single Player campaigns. Each mission would have its own theme and mood. Inon did a great job of establishing those themes."

Featuring a deeper single player experience and even more intense Dawn of War action, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault will also include a brand new, fifth race – The Imperial Guard. Based on the world of Warhammer 40,000 – the dark, futuristic, fantasy universe from Games Workshop, the game is scheduled to release in fall 2005. For more information visit www.dawnofwargame.com.

Dowdeswell added, "On top of all that, Inon offered to spend some time in our studio discussing exact music placement in our missions with our Lead Designer, which took the musical experience up another notch. It has been a fantastic working relationship. We're really happy with the results, and look forward to working together in the future."

Inon Zur brings his extensive experience, composing and producing award-winning dramatic music for film, television and videogames. Always drawn to a fresh challenge, Zur applies his film and television scoring background and symphony skill set to the new frontiers of CGI movies and cinematic videogame soundtracks. Earlier this year, Zur's main theme for Men of Valor was awarded Best Original Instrumental Song by the Game Audio Network Guild during the 2005 Game Developers Conference. He is currently composing for Prince of Persia 3. Zur is managed by Bob Rice of Four Bars Intertainment. For more information visit www.inonzur.com.
