Today, Ubisoft released a new trailer for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands that focuses in on the game’s music.
More specifically, the trailer features Alain Johannes, a veteran musician and producer from Queens of the Stone, Them Crooked Vultures, and more, diving into how he created the game’s authentic soundtrack. In the video, Johannes reveals that being asked to be a part of Ghost Recon Wildlands is “a dream come true.”
Johannes also reveals that music of the game’s recording and composing process has to do with reacting with the game’s visuals, and gameplay, in order to create something that feels more “cinematic” and ” intimate.”
Later in the vide, the game’s Audio Director Ghislain Soufflet and Music Supervisor Manu Bachet, reveal that normally they send composers rigid and detailed documents that structure the game’s themes, tempos, etc., but this time they simply showed Johannes screens of gameplay, landscapes, and enviroments and just let the musician improvise.
Lastly, the video reminds everyone of how Ubisoft did a little bit of extra work — and went all the way to Bolivia (where the game takes place — in order to create authentic in-game sounds.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is set to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 7, 2017. You can see the new trailer below:
