'Rise of The Tomb Raider': Bobby Tahouri of 'Game of Thrones', 'Iron Man' composing the music


As if the upcoming Rise of The Tomb Raider is not yet epic enough, Microsoft and game developer Crystal Dynamics recently announced the man behind the music of the gameBobby Tahouri.

As reported by the official Xbox Wire, Bobby Tahouri was the man behind the epic musical scoring of hit TV and big screen titles such as HBO’s Game of Thrones, Iron Man, and Despicable Me 2.

“It’s been an honor working on such a storied franchise,” Tahouri said. “Lara is someone who embodies an indomitable spirit, and crafting music to accompany her on her journey has been a fantastic experience.”

Along with the music is the use of procedurally generated musical scoring on stealth combat situations, through the use of a middleware system licensed by Intelligent Music Systems, LLC. The technology automatically mixes the original composition made by Tahouri and produces an all-new musical experience that is uniquely done everytime.

“Music is incredibly important in video games to help create the right atmosphere, mood and tone, and this is especially true for Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is set to be Lara’s biggest and boldest adventure yet,” said Crystal Dynamics brand director Rich Briggs. “We love the sound Bobby brings to the game, and we’re excited for fans to join Lara in this adventure when the game launches on November 10.”

In a previous interview with Pixel Vulture, Crystal Dynamics lead Designer Mike Brinker revealed how long players would have to spend on the game to be able to simply finish itand how long and it would take for someone to completely explore and run through everything there is to do in the game.

“Expect to spend around 30 -40 hours getting everything done,” Brinker said. “This is gathering every weapons, ability and completing every side quest. It all comes down to how you want to play through the game.”

However, for players who only wish to initially do a soft run through of the game, less than a day of playing the game is more than enough.

“Running through the game will take you around 15 20 hours;” he added. “So expect double the play time collecting everything and exploring every secret tomb.”

Rise of The Tomb Raider will come as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, and will arrive for Windows 10 PCs and the PS4 on 2016.
