Dead Space 2 is going to sound just as creepy as the first one did, thanks to returning composer Jason Graves. The first game’s soundtrack won critics and gamers over, and was even awarded two BAFTA awards — one for Original Score and the other for Use of Audio.
Graves says that he wrote a string quartet concerto for this sequel, and it represents Isaac’s vulnerable side. It was recorded by top musicians at the famous Skywalker Sound.
“The score really runs the gamut as you play through the game. There are much bigger and scarier pieces along with quieter, more personal moments to counterbalance them. I wrote for string quartet to portray Isaac’s vulnerable side. It’s quite the emotional arc, but of course still done in a very ‘Dead Space’ way.” – Jason Graves, Composer
Prepare for sounds that will scare the sh*t out of you when Dead Space 2 launches early next year.
