Celldweller and Atlas Plug to score third season of Killer InstinctKlayton of electro/rock hybrid act Celldweller will be teaming up with gaming composer Tom Salta under his Atlas Plug moniker to score the third season of Killer Instinct, one of Microsoft’s most acclaimed frnachises and taking over the music production from sound designer Mick Gordon. “It’s really great to be part of a game that has been historically driven by music,” says Klayton, adding that “You’ll be able to identify which fighter is fighting based on the vibe and elements of the music.”
Of his involvement, Salta stated, “A lot of people don’t realize that Atlas Plug made its first appearance in Microsoft games back in 2004, so it’s pretty amazing to be back as Atlas Plug, working on another Microsoft project, teaming up with Celldweller.
Celldweller and Atlas Plug to score third season of Killer InstinctKlayton and Salta had previously collaborated on the track “Ghosts,” featured on the 2013 deluxe edition of Celldweller’s self-titled debut, with Salta also adding orchestration to “Ursa Minor” from the first volume of Celldweller’s Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head collection. According to Klayton, “Doing various projects together in the past made it easy for Tom and I to jump into the Killer Instinct collab.”
Featuring cameos from characters from Battletoads, Killer Instinct season 3 was announced at Germany’s Gamescom, set for a release of March, 2016. Celldweller’s music has been featured in such games as Tom Clancy’s HAWX 2, Dead Rising 2 and 3, and Assassin’s Creed 2, while Salta has composed for several titles in the Halo franchise, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
