Ubisoft recently announced that the original soundtrack for Far Cry Primal
has been scored by two-time BAFTA winning composer Jason Graves. Graves is known for his “textural concept scores and cinematic orchestration” on games such as Evolve
, Tomb Raider
and Dead Space
The soundtrack for Far Cry Primal
uses sounds from the natural environment to create the "organic" score and features a "unique set of textures" to represent each of the tribes with which players will come into contact throughout the game. A ram's horn and solo flute are used to represent the Wenja. Aztec death whistles, female vocals and ritualistic percussion represent the Izilia, whilst the raw sounds of bones, antlers, clay pots, and male vocals depict the Udam.
Jerome Angelot, Music Designer for Ubisoft Montreal, spoke about his thoughts on Graves' score:
Jason manages to convey the beauty and the roughness of the land of Oros with his music. Far Cry Primal's score is a fresh mix of savant sound design, epic percussions and attention to detail. It will surprise the players; each time I hear the screams and the chants in the Izila tracks, I get chills.
Alongside the announcement, Ubisoft also released a track from the original soundtrack entitled “The Heart of Oros”. The track can be heard below:
Far Cry Primal
will be available on February 23rd. The original game soundtrack will be available on the same day and is also included with the game's Collector's Edition
