Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide players will slaughter all before them to the orchestral strains of a score by Jesper Kyd.

The composer’s credits include Assassin’s Creed, Hitman, Borderlands and Freedom Fighters. He has been honoured with a BAFTA for his work.

Kyd works with both live instruments and digitally manipulated sounds, making him kind of perfect for the high fantasy of Games Workshop’s Warhammer universe, as sen through the eys of the rat-like Skaven.

“Working with indie developer Fatshark was one of those crazy challenges that rarely comes along,” Kyd said.

“They wanted a score from the perspective of the Skaven inhabiting the Warhammer universe. Writing this score has been a bit like joining the Skaven clan and giving them a voice – it’s been great, twisted fun.”

Warhammer: End Times – Vermintude is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One towards the end of the year. A first person action adventure, it comes from War of the Vikings developer Fatshark.
