Battle Chasers: Nightwar, the video game continuation of Joe Madureira's incomplete comic book series of the same name, has a composer.

Jesper Kyd, a BAFTA winning musician, has scored an impressive number of games across many series including Assassin's Creed, Hitman, Darksiders, Borderlands, and a ton more. Today, developer Airship Syndicate is announcing that Kyd will be making music for the upcoming Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Darksiders II, which Kyd composed, also comes from the mind of Madureira, so the two have collaborated before.

In the press release announcing Kyd's involvement with the game he said, “One of the reasons why I think Joe's art and my music work so well together is the depth of atmosphere Joe brings to his work. Creating a rich atmosphere is a quality that I very much aspire to as well. Mood and depth are a key part of my music and I love that about Joe’s art.”

You can hear a sample of the music planned for the game below.
