WE ta lk to far cry 5’s au­dio di­rec­tor to find out more about how hymns will shape the game ex­pe­ri­ence

XBox: The Official Magazine - - FAR CRY 5 -

How has the set­ting of Far Cry 5 shaped the mu­sic in the game?

TG Each re­gion has the ten hymns, but re­ally it’s like 30 be­cause there are three dif­fer­ent in­ter­pre­ta­tions of them. At first we thought, let’s make the mu­sic as an­noy­ing as pos­si­ble so peo­ple would re­ally wanna kill the cult. But when we started mak­ing it more beau­ti­ful, we be­gan to un­der­stand how some­one who truly be­lieves could be in­spired by this mu­sic. And I do find my­self hum­ming and singing these songs my­self.

Will play­ers no­tice dif­fer­ent tracks in dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the map?

TG Well, we start with the Fa­ther, and as it branches out there are dif­fer­ent in­ter­pre­ta­tions of that mu­sic by other fam­ily mem­bers. So when you get to a re­gion, it might sound more in­dus­trial than Amer­i­cana. But the mu­sic still matches, be­cause you know the hymns. You know the songs, the melodies. So there is a co­he­sive­ness there. You won’t hear the score and the hymns com­pet­ing, but you will hear fa­mil­iar melodies in the score. In the in­dus­trial re­gion, it’ll take a bit more in­ves­ti­ga­tion to hear the con­nec­tion.
