Soundtrack Preview #1
Earlier this year we announced that series stalwart Robert L. Euvino will be returning once more to compose an all new soundtrack for Stronghold: Warlords. Based on influences from Japanese, Chinese, Cambodian, Mongolian and Vietnamese culture, the music of Stronghold: Warlords is a unique hybrid of different styles. Today we’re releasing another early look at the music in the form of a soundtrack preview! Please enjoy the track as we prepare to launch Warlords on March 9th.
“Creating high octane siege music was an interesting challenge,” said Robert Euvino, Composer and Sound Designer on the Stronghold series. “Many far eastern instruments have a truly distinctive flavour and are never tuned to minor scales and harmonic minors, the scales that create darkers sounds associated with war. In many cases film and game music tend to abandon the instrumentation in favour of more traditional contemporary orchestral ‘war’ music. What we end up with is an interesting hybrid which should hopefully satisfy both longtime fans and purists!”
Stronghold: Warlords will feature a full orchestral soundtrack available both in-game and standalone at launch as part of the game’s Special Edition. Taking influence from musicians like Yo-Yo Ma and master Shakuhachi players, Warlords’ soundtrack will cover a wide geographical area and hundreds of years of history.
