Sample the Music of A Plague Tale: Innocence

How do you create a stirring soundtrack for a game filled with a virulent plague, supernatural rats, the Inquisition, and the lives of two orphans hanging perilously in the balance? Only Olivier Deriviere knows for sure. He is the composer for the game, as well as the mind behind the music for Vampyr, Remember Me, Alone in the Dark, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry.

The short trailer today features excerpts from the songs “By the River” and “Father”. They play in the background as the game’s artistic director creates a speed painting of Amicia, one of the game’s main characters. If you like what you hear, Deriviere is posting clips of the soundtrack on his Twitter feed. (Check out “Beyond the Horizon” from his March 28th and “The Inquisition” from March 27th tweets.) You can hear more of his work on Spotify and, at least in the US, Amazon Music.

As you know, music for games is so much more than bleeps and bloops, and it can elevate the experience and emotions of the moment. A Plague Tale: Innocence is unleashing itself on retail and digital on May 14th, and, if nothing else, the music seems to be really interesting. Check back with us in the future to check out our thoughts on the game.
