Developed by THQ in-house studio Vigil Games, DARKSIDERS puts players in the role of War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The dramatic score features 60 minutes of original music composed by Velasco and Reagan and was recorded with a full choir at the world renowned Skywalker Sound Studios.
Jeremy Robins, audio director at Vigil Games, commented, “Mike and Cris have delivered a score that not only encompasses a character as epic as one of the four horsemen, but helped define it as an IP.”
Victor Rodriguez, music director at THQ, added, “Cris and Mike bring the emotion with their unique, highly visceral musical score.”
In DARKSIDERS players will explore a world set 100 years after the biblical Apocalypse, traveling through expansive dungeons, battling demons and angels and striking deals with unsavory characters in an epic quest to restore the balance between Heaven and Hell.
