Tankian commented on his work on Morning Star:
“I’m really enjoying working on Morning Star because it gives me the ability to create new musical worlds to complement the new visual worlds in the game. Though most of the game play will be action oriented cues, the stunning artwork and static scenes have inspired unique sounds unheard before.”
Morning Star is a shooter game taking place 120 years into the future aboard the research vessel MSRV-Joplin, which features updated military weaponry to explore a mysterious signal within the Solar System. His music comes in during the disaster strikes, to further enhance the battle scenes.
