Codemasters has announced that God of War composer Cris Velasco will be making the music for Clive Barker's Jericho.

The spooky author hand picked him for the role, apparently, and is keen to sing his praises.

"Cris Velasco’s music for Clive Barker’s Jericho is exquisite," said Barker from his crypt. "Filled with yearning, dark energy, threat and redemption, it is the unstoppable engine in the terrifying ghost train of Jericho."

Clive Barker's Jericho is a squad-based tactical shooter for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. You control a unique supernatural task force sent to some silly old ruins right in the heart of a dodgy dimensional rift, so you can uncover and stop an ancient evil from rising again.

Barker is scribing the plot and overseeing the production of the game, probably jumping out on people in dark corridors or writing eerie messages in blood on the walls.

To get an idea of how Velasco's music is shaping up, pop into Eurogamer TV for today's new trailer.

Clive Barker's Jericho is due for release in October, and you can find our first impressions of the game elsewhere on the site
