Electronic Arts and Visceral Games today announced that “BioShock” composer Garry Schyman is the man with the plan for EA’s hell-bent adventure game Dante’s Inferno.
The soundtrack was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London and made use of the‚ Philharmonia Orchestra and Metro Voices Singers for the games’ orchestral score and chorus respectivley.
“Scoring Dante’s Inferno was one of the most interesting and challenging projects I have ever tackled” said Garry Schyman. “Literally being asked to score hell was fantastic especially once I saw the surrealistically frightening world that Visceral Games had developed. I thought long and hard about every piece of music I wrote to create something new, surprising and fitting. It has turned out to be one of the most creative experiences in my career.”
Hell is quite a place. What with its demonology, heartache and all you’d think the sights alone would scare you sh*tless, but no, you’ll likely need multiple pairs of undergarments to play EA’s latest.
The third-person action adventure game from Visceral Games (formerly EA Redwood Shores) hits PS3, Xbox 360, and PSP February 9 2010.
