Halo Infinite has added a second composer. Developer 343 Industries confirmed as part of the game’s big showing that Ori and the Blind Forest‘s Gareth Coker has come aboard to co-compose the music for Halo Infinite alongside Curtis Schweitzer.
“We’re huge fans of Gareth, known most recently for his work on the Ori soundtracks,” Halo boss Chris Lee said in a blog post. “Gareth’s work can be heard throughout the campaign including one of my personal favorites we refer to internally as ‘Escharum’s theme.'”
Escharum is the new villain in Halo Infinite–he is the leader of the Banished. According to Microsoft, Escharum will be “one of the most formidable foes the Master Chief has ever faced.”
