Hans Zimmer composes Crysis 2 score

Hollywood veteran helps out Crytek team.

Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has lent his hand to Crysis 2's score, the game's publisher EA has revealed.

Zimmer - whose CV includes music for Inception, The Dark Knight and Gladiator - worked alongside in-house composers Borislav Slavov and Tilman Sillescu on the forthcoming shooter's soundtrack.

"I was drawn to Crysis 2 because of Crytek's passion for the project and the world they created," said Zimmer. "And I am very happy with the outcome of our collaboration."

You can wrap your ears around his efforts when the Crytek-developed shooter launches on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 25th March, or you can download the soundtrack from iTunes, Amazon and various other digital retailers from 22nd March.
