New York, (March 22, 2016) – Sumthing Else Music Works, the premier record label dedicated to releasing video game soundtracks, today announced the CD release of the original soundtrack from Far Cry Primal as well other popular titles in the award-winning series including Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The soundtracks are now available for digital download and will be available in stores on March 22.
Far Cry Primal Original Game Soundtrack – Music by Jason Graves
Two-time BAFTA winning composer Jason Graves has composed the original game soundtrack for the next exciting chapter in the award-winning Far Cry franchise, Far Cry Primal. Graves is renowned for his textural concept scores and cinematic orchestration on AAA titles such as Until Dawn, The Order: 1886, Evolve, Tomb Raider and Dead Space.
As a classically-trained composer and world percussionist, Graves created an entirely live organic score for Far Cry Primal, blending a diverse array of sounds from the natural environment and incorporating many animal effects into the score. The evocative soundtrack features a unique set of textures representing each of the tribes that players will encounter, including a ram’s horn and solo flute (Wenja); Aztec death whistles, female vocals, ritualistic percussion (Izilia); raw sounds from Far Cry‘s Stone Age natural environment including bushes, bones, antlers, clay pots, wooden artifacts and male vocals (Udam). Crafted together the sounds bring the rich and primal gameplay alive to players challenged to survive in a hostile environment and rise to become the apex predator.
The award-winning franchise that stormed the tropics and climbed the Himalayas now brings its innovative open world sandbox gameplay to a time when humans were not at the top of the food chain, but were fighting to climb it, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments, and unpredictable savage encounters, in Far Cry Primal.
