System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian has returned to games. The artist announced through his website that he created the entire musical score for Bungie founder Alex Seropian's upcoming iOS title Morning Star. The game is due out in spring 2013.
"Though most of the gameplay will be action oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before," Tankian said in a statement.
Tankian previously composed parts of the score for 2007 Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game Stranglehold, which was developed with filmmaker John Woo (Face/Off, Mission: Impossible II).
Morning Star is set 120 years into the future (around 2132) and brings players aboard the MSRV-Joplin, a research vessel equipped with heavy weaponry. Players seek out a mysterious signal, and as is often the case, disaster takes hold and gamers are thrust into the middle of an intergalactic war.
