Horizon Zero Dawn has added another award to its belt recently by winning the Jerry Goldsmith's best original score in a video game. This was announced by its game developer, Guerrilla Games. The awarding body seeks to encourage music composers by giving such awards to recognize their exemplary work on audiovisual media.
This Is Not The First Award Of Horizon Zero Dawn
This is not the first award given to Horizon Zero Dawn. The open world action-adventure title has already won the Game Critics Award for the Best Original Game at E3 2016. Apparently, the list of achievements for this video game is not yet over. This title was just released earlier this year and there are still a number of upcoming events where this game is expected to gather recognitions.
Now It's The Best In Musical Score
The Jerry Goldsmith Awards are established to give honor to the works done by musicians in the entertainment industry including movies, television, video games and advertising. In receiving this award, Horizon Zero Dawn joins RiME, another video game, in being recognized by this awarding body. RiME's theme song "Song of the Sea" won the best song in a video game.
The original musical score of Horizon Zero Dawn was composed by The Flight, Jonathan Williams, Lucas van Tol, Niels van der Leest and Joris de Man. They received recognition for their collective musical work on the 12th Annual Jerry Goldsmith Awards. Julie Elven, a soundtrack and film vocalist also contributed to the work of the team.
Sony Said More Can Be Expected
With this recent accolade given to Horizon Zero Dawn, industry observers are projecting that Sony might franchise this title. They believe that there will be more to be expected of the game such as the possibility of spin-offs and follow-ups. The entertainment company even said that if the game enters its franchise phase, players can expect more expansion and more contents in the future.
