An 80-piece orchestra, including brass, timpani, strings and some of the best musicians in Hollywood, sat down to record one of the highest profile soundtracks ever written for a videogame title ? Huxley. The music for the game is dramatic, and aptly tells the tale of the ongoing struggle between humans and mutants in a post-Apocalyptic setting, as they strive to gain exclusive control of a new energy resource.
The music, recorded at Warner Brothers studios, was composed by Kevin Riepl, who worked on previous titles such as Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 2003. True to the composer?s style, the music delves into its dramatic depths while exuberating a raw energy that mostly comes from the driving rhythm and electronic prerecords.
No release date is set yet, but Huxley will be released by Webzen Games later this year.
