REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – October 4, 2010 – Ramin Djawadi is already receiving critical acclaim for his just released score to the newest Medal of Honor™. The game will be available in eight days, but now through October 7, Gamers can hear Djawadi’s score as they play the game for free. PC gamers worldwide can sample two diverse maps and two action-packed multiplayer modes in the PC Multiplayer Open Beta. Go to Djawadi is best known for his film and TV scores including Iron Man, "Prison Break" and Clash of the Titans. His videogame score matches the intense soldier’s story and Tier 1 experience told throughout Medal of Honor, which takes place in the current war in Afghanistan. Medal of Honor score album is now available on iTunes; Game available October 12th.

"The new version of a landmark game always requires a next-level soundtrack," said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing. "But this 'reinvention' of Medal of Honor demanded a composer who could create an epic score that brings the game into a whole new era. The intuition and skill that makes Ramin Djawadi one of Hollywood's top young talents in film scoring is exemplified in MoH. This is an incredibly intense score, and we're tremendously proud to have him in the EA family."

For the first time in its 11-year history, Medal of Honor leaves the World War II theatre and enters the modern day setting of war-torn Afghanistan told through the lens of a small band of fictional characters. Medal of Honor introduces players to the Tier 1 Operator, an elite warrior and relatively unknown instrument of the U.S. Military that operates under the National Command Authority, taking on missions no one else can handle. Composer Ramin Djawadi explains "The fact that it is modern day with various locations asked for a completely different approach both stylistically and thematically. The score is very wide spread from emotional orchestral to edgy modern action. Western and ethnic instruments are used to represent the different cultures."

Djawadi composed over 100 minutes of music which needed to play perfectly with the actions that constantly change throughout the game including an abrupt ending. "Designing a score that defines both the scalpel-like quiet professionals that are the Tier 1 Operators and the bold execution of the sledge hammer big military, has been truly unlike any project I’ve had the opportunity to work on," said Djawadi. "Between the fast paced action and the precise battle sequences, players will be kept on the edge of their seats the entire game."

Medal of Honor launches on October 12, 2010 in North America and October 15 in Europe for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PC. Follow the game on twitter at: or become a fan on Facebook at
