Fans of the Vampire the Masquerade games might be interested in checking out the upcoming immersive role-playing experience steeped in vampire mythology; Vampyr. This goes double for the fact the game’s soundtrack was created by BAFTA-nominated composer Olivier Derivière (Remember Me, Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag – Freedom Cry), who brings the intense and haunted game’s atmosphere to life with industrial flavors.

“I wanted to capture the struggle between the doctor and vampire that Jonathan Reid becomes. Only a virtuoso cellist like Eric-Maria Couturier, with all his experience in contemporary classical music, could give this performance such complex duality with his instrument. With the use of dual strings and so many disturbing notes, his musicianship evokes something unique that perfectly matches the journey of Jonathan Reid.” – Olivier Derivière, Composer

Derivière’s dense and foreboding score also features dramatic, heart-staking choral performances recorded with the acclaimed Vox Futura choir ensemble, and further enhances the player’s experience by manipulating drones and other hybrid sounds to pan from side-to-side while you are exploring the darkly atmospheric streets of early 20th century London.

The Vampyr soundtrack premieres today on Bandcamp, with a digital release to follow on all platforms June 5.  A limited edition vinyl featuring a selection of Vampyr‘s soundtrack is also available to pre-order at select retailers exclusively in Europe.
