BAFTA award-winning Danish composer Jesper Kyd’s dark and twisted acoustic soundtrack for the first person melee/shooter Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide, based on the popular Games Workshop Warhammer series, will be released via digital and streaming outlets on 26 September.
The 36-track album compiled by Kyd includes the core game’s original soundtrack, new music from the DLC expansions as well as instrumental songs heard in the game’s local tavern, “Red Moon Inn”.
“It’s a dynamic, raw and violent score that belongs to Vermintide’s dark medieval setting,” says composer Jesper Kyd. “We wanted the score to sound like it was performed by a Skaven band on acoustic instruments mangled by some mad Skaven scientist in the dark ages. It’s very different from anything I have written in the past.”
Developed by Swedish games studio Fatshark, Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide is a co-operative action FPS and melee combat adventure set in the “End Times” of the iconic Warhammer fantasy universe.
