PLANO, TEXAS (APRIL 28, 2011) - KingsIsle Entertainment, creators of the
award-winning online game Wizard101, announced today that the soundtrack
for its upcoming expansion world, Wintertusk, was composed by one of the
hottest young musical talents in the entertainment industry. Over the
course of several weeks the company plans to provide hints about the
composer's identity, culminating in a final reveal timed to Wintertusk's
launch later this spring.
"This is a cool idea, because our mystery composer has a huge name in
the music business but has never created music for a video game," said
J. Todd Coleman, vice president and creative director of Wizard101. "I'm
really impressed by this artist's adaptability and talent. I think our
players are going to be very surprised and totally blown-away."
To create the soundtrack for Wintertusk, the mystery artist composed
seven original pieces of music, each representing a different facet of
the upcoming epic storyline. Additional information about the world of
Wintertusk can be found at https://www.wizard101.com/game/april2011.
Wintertusk continues the storyline that began in the icy world of
Grizzlehiem, offering a variety of challenges for accomplished Wizards
and fantastic rewards such as new spells, high-level pets and exclusive
loot. For lower-level players the expansion brings back the underwater
realm of Crab Alley, continuing the story of the Crab King, newly
returned from his musical world tour.

Awesome! I wonder who the mystery composer is? Any ideas? Part of me
is thinking it's Eric Bloom?
**Update** oh yeah, didn't catch "hottest young musical talents" on my first read of that ... Definitely NOT Eric Bloom. Taylor Swift? **Update**
