  • EA Enlists composer Ramin Djawadi for Medal of Honor

    EA announced today that the composer Ramin Djawadi has wrote the music for Medal of Honor.

    Ramin Djawadi

    Ramin Djawadi is known for his work on the movie Iron Man, the television series Prison Break and the remake of Clash of the Titans and has his unique style brought in the soundtrack of EA's intense war game. 

    The original soundtrack of the game Medal of Honor is now available on select digital service providers for online purchase.

    Steve Schnur, EA Executive of Music and Marketing said, “The new version of a landmark game always requires a next-level soundtrack,”

    “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.”

    “The fact that it is modern day with various locations asked for a completely different approach both stylistically and thematically,” added Djawadi. “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.”

  • Dice Confirmed Post Launch Multiplayer DLC for Medal of Honor
