Clint Mansell to compose Mass Effect 3 soundtrack

BioWare has revealed that Clint Mansell will be composing the soundtrack for the third game in its epic sci-fi RPG series Mass Effect.

For those unfamiliar with Mansell, he has previously worked on Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler and Black Swan.

The prolific composer also created the soundtrack for Moon, which has a similar minimalist, 'space' vibe as Mass Effect.

Until now the Mass Effect soundtrack has been composed by Jack Wall, who has a long history in creating music for games. His works include Dungeon Siege II, Jade Empire, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Myst IV: Revelation.

Though this is his first video game project, Mansell isn't a complete stranger to the games industry. He is responsible for creating the soundtrack for the Doom movie which stared Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
