EA Montreal announced today that renowned film composer Tyler Bates will score the upcoming third person co-op shooter Army of Two: the 40th Day. Bates is the mastermind behind blockbuster hits 300 and Watchmen.
“Set in Shanghai in the middle of a major a disaster, ARMY OF TWO: The 40th Day dials up the action through a series of powerful scenes where players have to work together as a team to survive and escape the city,” said Lewis James, Audio Director at EA Montreal. “Tyler examined every part of the game and how players will move through the world to craft a score that truly represents their actions and the chaos unfolding around them.”
Bates holds some 50 films with 15 years of experience. He also scored films like The Day the Earth Stood Still, Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween 2, and the Showtime hit comedy series “Californication.”
“The 40th Day is one of the most intense games I’ve seen,” said Tyler Bates. “The setting, characters and action in the game provided me the perfect backdrop to create an equally intense and dramatic score that compliments the gameplay.”
Army of Two: the 40th Day is set for release on Jan. 12, 2010 in North America, and Jan. 8, 2010 in Europe. The game will be available for the PlayStation 3, PSP, and Xbox 360.

Watchmen had a score? I just remember a ton of old-school tracks like "Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkle, and "Time They Are Changin" by Bob Dylan. Unless it's the score for the Motion Comic DVD of Watchmen, then I would be excited.
