Frontier Foundry and Petroglyph invite players to take a seat and experience an outstanding live orchestral performance in a behind-the-scenes look at the evocative soundtrack from their upcoming WW1 RTS, The Great War: Western Front.
In the new featurette, ‘Scoring the Western Front’, players will join award-winning Composer and Audio Director Frank Klepacki (Command & Conquer™: Remastered, Star Wars™: Empire at War, Dune II) and FAME’S Skopje Studio Orchestra conductor Sasho Tatarchevski for an exciting first look at the creative journey, with footage captured live at the orchestra’s home in Skopje, as they met to record the game’s soundtrack.
Each section of the 74-piece world class orchestra takes centre stage across 31 original tracks, which each carries the intensity of a myriad of emotions. Complimented by a 24-piece choir, the feelings rooted within each piece reflect the delicate tonal balance of a complex war, immersing players into the weight of the decisions they will make as both Theatre Commander and Field Commander.
The final soundtrack was mastered at London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios under the stewardship of Grammy-nominated engineer Simon Gibson, renowned for his work across 5.1 surround projects spanning legendary production music, film scores and television.
The Great War: Western Front – Victory Edition includes a copy of the stunning soundtrack, alongside the game, a digital field guide containing additional intelligence to assist players in refining their tactics, and five digital wallpapers featuring a selection of hand-drawn concept art and motifs.
