Gears of War Taps Composer from Game of Thrones

I'm sure most of you out there have heard the theme song to Game of Thrones, for some it haunts your dreams, for others it makes you wonder who is going to die next, and of course there are those who just get excited for a return trip to Westeros. Well it would appear that the composer behind that tune has been tapped for the music score in the upcoming Gears of War game.

Well actually he's doing the music for Gears of War 4, and is saying that there will be a fifth entry into the series and he will be working on that one as well. Ramin Djawadi is the gentleman's name, and he's no stranger when it comes with music in video games. He actually worked on the music for System Shock and Thief.

For me this just makes me wish I had Gears of War 4 already in my hands so that I can shoot up some Locust and listen to what I'm sure will be an amazing soundtrack. Djawadi has said that these compositions will not be in the same vein as Game of Thrones, these will require a new sound.

Travel into History in this Rogue-Like Sim

The Curious Expedition is set in the late 19th century. You and your party will explore the Wilds man has yet to see. This of course will give you the chance for fame, discoveries, and of course wealth. Now this game has been in Early Access on Steam for about a year, but it would appear that this game is ready to go Gold at the beginning of September (the 2nd to be exact). This game is going to run you $14.99, however, if you jump on this deal within the first week you will be presented with a 15% discount.

You will have to learn what to equip, what risks to take, keeping an eye on your resources, and of course making back from your expeditions alive. Do you think you have the ability to lead your men/women into procedurally generated lands where there are mysterious temples that are filled with wealth, but also great danger? This game will be available through Steam, GOG, and Humble.

There are limited time missions that appear in the town from time to time that will allow you to have a chance at better items, monsters, etc. There's also chances where you can team up and take on missions, so tell your friends, and defend what is your's.

This game is out for free, with in-app purchases, for both Android and iOS devices. There's also an incentive to get it now instead of later, for a limited time this game will feature some of the characters and monsters from Attack on Titan.

Indie Studio Sponsors COD Team

 

In a very interest turn of events Black Forest Games was able to sponsor a COD team, but not just a COD team, one that is going to be a contender for the World Championship. Starting Sept. 1st - 4th in LA. This team, we'll call them BFG for short, will consist of three UK players and one German player. Now of course let's tell you exactly who will be making up this team:

Some might recognize the names of these players because this team was once called Revoltables. Now if you are wondering how Black Forest Games really feels about their chance to support an eSports team, look no further than co-founder, Adrian Goersch:

Well, we could construct a connection between Call of Duty and our game Rogue Stormers, as both are multiplayer shooter games. But frankly, we just seized the unique opportunity to support a team of extremely skilled young players – and are very proud that they will wear our colors in the world championships.
