It’s 17 years since XIII was originally released, and while FarCry arriving the Spring afterwards is more commonlyremembered, for many XIII was a big title in paving the way for open-choice games that have become so popular since.
If you can’t wait for the November 10th release of the remake, Microids have a video interview with the composer, Lionel Gaget.
Lionel Gaget revisits his XIII soundtrack creation process and explains his choices of instruments made to fit the game’s intentions giving the title a very unique jazzy mood. Behind the piano, he details the strength of dynamic music, changing its rhythm to match the player’s actions.
Lionel also explains how he crafted a musical identity that follows every situation the player faces in the game, would it be a calm exploration, a suspenseful infiltration or an intense combat situation.
Microids and Ubisoft Music are proud to announce the digital availability of the album containing 11 remastered tracks on streaming platforms alongside the game launch (November 10th). The soundtrack will also soon be available on Vinyl.
As an appetizer, you can already listen to the track titled “Brighton Beach” here.]
