Behind all good movies, games, and even graphic novels is the power of music, which brings us memories that will live with us for all the days we live, and now, we can hear the first song from the score, Amicia, based on the leading lady herself.
Since the beginning of time, music has moved us to and fro in unimaginable ways. For some, it helps us connect to the world around us. For some of us, this music helps bring stories in movies, games, and graphic novels we know and love to life; haunting us with the beauty of the music we hear as the scenes unfold before us.
Whether it’s the opening seconds to Chrono Cross when Scars of Time begins to play or the haunting death of Sniper Wolf when Enclosure begins to play, reminding us of her life, her death, and the emotional implications her life as a soldier had.
Now, we have a new experience just over the horizon as composer Olivier Deriviere, the mind behind soundtracks such as Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag – Freedom Cry, Remember Me, Alone in the Dark, and the critically-acclaimed Vampyr seeks to bring us songs of hope, darkness, and and unforgotteable encounters unfolds when A Plague Tale: Innocence brings its beautiful and haunting experiences to a console or PC near you on May 14th, 2019.
In the featurette, you will get to see the work of art director Olivier Ponsonnet come to life as he paints leading protagonist Amicia, who will have to face down rats, a plague, death, and much more as she seeks to protect her brother from a sick and dying world as a plague overtakes those around them in 14th century France.
Along with the new featurette (something I myself have fallen in love with – the music that is), Focus Home Interactive has confirmed that pre-orders of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will feature a 12-track vinyl at participating retailers today and will be available for pick-up when the game launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 14th, 2019.
