Horizon Zero Dawn has taken home some accolades before including Best Original Game at the Game Critics Awards, but now it is being recognized for its soundtrack. The game took home “Best Original Score” for a video game at the 12th annual Jerry Goldsmith Awards. The awards recognizes the work of composers Joris de Man, The Flight, Niels van der Leest, Jonathan Williams, and Lucas van Tol.
The Jerry Goldsmith Awards honor the work of musicians in film, television, advertising, and of course, video games, who may have not received deserved recognition in the past. Other notable winners include David Garcia for “Song of the Sea” from Rime, as well as the musicians behind Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, and Scott Salinas’ famous documentary The Ivory Game.
