With the upcoming horror RPG Vampyr set to be released next month, we’ve been provided with three exclusive samples from the game’s soundtrack, which you can listen to below. Each of the tracks were composed by BAFTA nominee Olivier Deriviere, with Eric-Maria Couturier performing on the cello. Deriviere was quoted as saying:
“I wanted to capture the struggle between the doctor and vampire that Jonathan Reid becomes. Only a virtuoso cellist like Eric Maria Couturier, with all his experience in contemporary classical music, could give this performance such complex duality with his instrument. With the use of dual strings and so many disturbing notes, his musicianship evokes something unique that matches perfectly the journey of Jonathan Reid.”
In addition to utilizing heart-staking choral performances recorded with the acclaimed Vox Futura choir ensemble, Deriviere also manipulated drones and other hybrid sounds to echo the player’s movements as they prowl the streets of early 20th century London.
The soundtrack will premiere on Bandcamp on May 3, before being available on all other digital platforms on June 5. If you’d like to own the a physical copy, you might be interested to learn that pre-orders of the game from select European retailers will come bundled with a free soundtrack vinyl. Visit the official website for more details.
Vampyr, which was developed by Dontnod Entertainment, will be published by Focus Home Interactive on PC and consoles on June 5.
