Cris Velasco Scores Clive Barker’s Jericho

Clive Barker's Jericho

If you’ve played God of War and/or God of War II, you’ve no doubt been captivated by the epic orchestral music scored by award-winning video game composer Cris Velasco (and if you weren’t you need to have you’re ears cleaned out, as the GoW games have some of the best game music in recent memory). Now prepare to be aurally terrified by Velasco’s latest work as the composer of the haunting soundtrack to Codemasters’ paranormal horror FPS, Clive Barker’s Jericho. Clive Barker, who handpicked Velasco for the job, had this to say:

“Cris Velasco’s music for Clive Barker’s Jericho is exquisite,” states Clive Barker. “Filled with yearning, dark energy, threat and redemption, it is the unstoppable engine in the terrifying ghost train of Jericho.”

Word has also been given regarding a narrowed down release time for Jericho, which is coming to the PC, PS3 and 360. No specific date just yet, but sometime in “late October” is the plan — Halloween day would sure make sense, no?

If that’s not enough Jericho info to tide you over, go ahead and check out this new trailer that Codemasters has passed along today for an early sample of Velasco’s score and some actual gameplay action.
