Cyborg-in-Chief Involved in Gaming Novel Soundtrack

Warning: Shameless Self Promotion Ahead:

The news is official today, so I thought I’d share it here. Frighteningly-creative composer/musician John Bergin and I have created a soundtrack to Traitor General, the forthcoming Gaunt’s Ghosts novel by Dan Abnett. The Gaunt series takes place in the world of the popular tabletop sci-fi wargame Warhammer 40,000. Along with the regular paperback version of the book, there’ll be a leatherbound special edition with our 73-minute soundtrack included. I’m psyched. I think the CD came out really well.

Check out the Black Library’s News Page for more info and a sample of one of the tracks: “There Are No Miracles (Only Men).”

For the more digitally-inclined gamer, THQ is working on a real-time 40K strategy game, called Dawn of War, using the Relic 3D engine. So far, it looks pretty great and looks like it captures the tabletop experience better than previous stinkers like Chaos Gate and Final Liberation.
