CI Games, creators of the Sniper Ghost Warrior and Lords of the Fallen series of games, invites players to take an aural journey to the Republic of Georgia as the team elaborates on the musical creation and inspiration of the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 score.
The Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 score is currently available on Spotify, iTunes, and Google Play:
Composed and produced by Mikolai Stroinski (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Detached, Kursk), mixed by Steve Kempster and recorded by Tony Phillips at Beautiful Noise Studios in Los Angeles, each artist was invited to the studio to provide his or her own element to the overall score. Some instruments used that may be familiar to a Western audience include drum, bass, synthesizer, guitar and vocals; but, there’s also the use of mandolin, balalaika and bandura.
Artists involved include:
- Vocals – Aurelia Shrenker
- Guitars, Balalaika, Bandura, Mandolin – George Bernhardt
- Synthesizers – Mikolai Stroinski
- Bass – Paul Bushnell
- Drum Set – Joel Taylor
Some songs on the soundtrack have a noticeable Georgian touch to them, and a fair amount ofSniper Ghost Warrior 3’s score is inspired by various folk and pop music researched prior to the pre-production of the game score. The goal in mind for the Georgian-influenced songs are to enhance the player’s emotions and to emphasize the location in Georgia while also leaving the location to be painted by other elements in the game such as the graphics and dialogue.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 tells the story of brotherhood, faith and betrayal in the most complete sniper experience ever. Take the role of an American sniper named Jonathan North, who is dropped into enemy territory in northern Georgia, nearby Russian borders. Explore large open-world maps with dynamic weather and a day and night cycle that actually impacts play and decisions. Customize weapon equipment, accessories, vehicles and a drone, and utilize the three pillars of gameplay to your liking: Sniper, Ghost and Warrior.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches on the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC on April 25, 2017.
