Featuring Music From Award Winning Composer Bear McCreary
Ahead of God of War’s highly anticipated release on Friday, the God of War soundtrack composed by Bear McCreary is also known for his work on Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead & 10 Cloverfield Lane has been released on Spotify and also available on PlayStation Music.
Bear McCreary had an interview with PlayStation and had this to say about his work:
“When Santa Monica Studio asked me to compose the score to the new God of War, I was awestruck, because I’m such a fan of the original games in the franchise. As I collaborated with game director Cory Barlog, it became clear that this new game would require wholly new music that did not revisit the memorable scores of the original games, but instead ventured forth into new musical territory. I took my memories of that classic God of War soundtrack – the deep choirs, pounding drums, and shrieking brass – and reinvented them for a Norse age. I wrote new themes, and introduced to the music exotic instrumentation and languages from various Northern European folk traditions.”
The game launches exclusively on PlayStation 4 on Friday, 20 April 2018.
