Kalypso certainly is known for making great games and making games great – but this time it’s a first for us as well!
Since the release of „Vikings – Wolves of Midgard“ players can enjoy the new action game that takes them to the Shores of Midgard, a world based upon the mythology and history of the Vikings, but with a fantasy twist. Our hero – either a ruthless shieldmaiden or a ferocious Viking warrior – has to fight against hordes of terrifying undead monstrosities.
„The music of the game is rather dark and sparse. The only track that breaks out is the main theme. The requirement was to combine these Nordic styles with a catchy hook and orchestral elements. It’s a track that has a recognition value and it should be striking to the listeners. The in-game music has a very acoustic touch and subtly supports the player in his/her action.“, says Matthias Wolf of Dynamedion.
And yes, the composers did a great job! Through the very special central theme – the soundtrack becomes versatile and multifarious. So it definitely pays off to listen to the tracks and dive into the world of Vikings.
Want to have a peak? Here’s the trailer that uses the game’s music:
The complete album as well as single tracks can be purchased worldwide via the usual suspects iTunes, Google Play Music, amazon and a fine selection of other stores.
