The eagerly-awaited next chapter of the God of War series is only a week away from release, and now those looking forward to the epic journey will have a small bit of the game to enjoy through its music.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced that the complete soundtrack for God of War is now available to listen to on Spotify, allowing fans at least a small taste of the epic experience that awaits them one week before the game officially launches on PS4.
Composer Bear McCreary (who previously composed for films and TV such as Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead) shared a few insights on the making of the music for the game, saying that he was “awestruck” to work on the series’ latest chapter as a fan of the original games.
Specifically, McCreary stated that “it became clear that this new game would require wholly new music that did not revisit the memorable scores of the original games” after speaking to director Cory Barlog, but instead wanted to focus on “new musical territory.” McCreary also stated that of all the tracks he worked on and composed for the game, the one that resonates most with him is “Memories of Mother,” as he sought to create “an unexpectedly beautiful theme for Kratos.”
God of War will release exclusively for PS4 on April 20th, 2018. For more on the game you can read our full review, which earned one of our very, very rare 10.0 scores.
