Composer Clint Mansell is to add this hollywood touch to Mass Effect 3′s soundtrack.
Mansell’s credits include Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler and more recently Black Swan.
Revealing his involvement in Bioware’s trilogy, Mansell spoke about how different producing a game soundtrack is to that of a hollywood blockbuster.
"With something like Mass Effect you’re more like a DJ, with all these elements," he said.
"You’ve got the holding pattern, then the big explosion where you need the score to kick in. Then you need to take it off on a tangent. You’ve got all these different elements that change depending on what the player does."
"You have to figure out an overall symphony, but be able to break it down into component parts. You can bring the pain when required."
Mass Effect 3 will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC later this year.
